Memorial Day Prayers

Although the modern Memorial Day weekend is filled with bar-b-ques, fishing trips and family gatherings, it was not implemented as a day of celebrations.  Memorial Day is a day to remember and memorialize the men and women of our armed forces who paid the ultimate price for our freedoms.

Today, I'd like to offer a prayer for the families of our nation's fallen heroes and a prayer of protection for those currently serving.
To those mourning the loss of your loved one I pray John 14: 27, "Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you.  Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid."
To those currently serving I pray Psalm 121: 7,8, "The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil: He shall preserve thy soul.  The Lord shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore."


  1. Amen! For some reason, Memorial Day has always been the most somber of holidays for me, and I always get frustrated with folks who say that this day - Memorial Day - is in honor of their husband or daddy who died last August.
    My Dad was a Veteran of WW ll, and he died a Veteran, at 98 years of age. I will honor him on Veterans Day, but this is not "his" day.

  2. Hello Tatersmama,

    Thank you for stopping by and visiting my blog. It is so wonderful to hear that your father lived to the mature age of 98. Mr.B's step-father is still going strong at 97 - and that's no exaggeration, as he still pushes cattle on horseback!
    I hope you are able to visit again soon and I pray a post or two will be a blessing to you.



Thank you for taking time to read my blog and leave a comment. I try my best to respond to each one. God Bless You, Mrs.B
