In honor of Memorial Day, President Joe Biden issued a Proclamation and Prayer for Peace. He stated, “On Memorial Day, we honor America’s beloved daughters and sons who gave their last full measure of devotion to this Nation.  We can never fully repay the debt we owe these fallen heroes.“

The president continued, “Today, we vow to rededicate ourselves to the work for which they gave their lives, and we recommit to supporting the families, caregivers, and survivors they left behind.

He added, “For generations, stretching back to the formation of our country, these courageous people answered duty’s call, willing to give their lives for that which we all hold dear.  They fought for our Independence.  They defended our democracy.  They sacrificed for our freedom.  And today, as they lie in eternal peace, we continue to live by the light of liberty that they so bravely kept burning bright around the world.“

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • With gratitude for brave American service members who have given their lives in defense of this nation throughout its history.
  • For wisdom for the president as commander-in-chief and for his advisors in the Defense Department.
  • For God’s protection over the military personnel currently serving in the U.S. Armed Forces.
