A Memorial Day Prayer

Heavenly Father, as an American, thank you for this great country. I am not proud, but humbled, that in Your sovereignty I was born in such a Nation. Thank You for those serving in the military that you have used to help raise up and protect America. Thank you for those men and women in our military who were willing to give their lives and who gave their lives to fight to keep this country free. It is a great service to lay down one’s life for others. Father, as a Christian, this is a great reminder of the incomparable sacrifice of your only Son Jesus dying for sinners. I pray for the American Christian, that as their heart weeps for the American military that their hearts would weep and rejoice so much more for Jesus sacrifice, not only on special occasions, but on a daily basis. I pray that those Christians serving in our military would be motivated by Jesus sacrifice to both share and live out the effects of the gospel among their fellow service men and women. I pray that they would serve showing the hope of Jesus Christ that is in them. Please protect all of those serving and give wisdom and guidance to our President to make proper and well informed decisions for our military and country. Father, help the church to not squander these freedoms You have provided. Forgive us for using these freedoms to indulge ourselves and to sin against You. Help us to use these freedoms for Your glory to carry out the Great Commission. Help us to be a light within our Nation that we might go out and be light among the Nations. In the name of Your Son, Jesus Christ. Amen.
