Heavenly Father, we thank you for all those who have served us in the military, putting their lives in danger so that we can live in freedom. We ask you to give strength and protection to those who continue to serve. Be with them in all dangers and grant their families peace in knowing that You are with all those who trust in You. Grant to our veterans peace and healing. Be with them in their times of stress and pain. Heal their bodies and ease their minds. Lead them to cast their burdens on Jesus, who has forgiven the sins of all. Through Your Word, grant faith to all who do not yet know their Savior and give to them the joy and peace in knowing and believing that their sins are forgiven by Your grace, through faith in Jesus Christ. In His name we pray. Amen.
