Monday, May 27

Today, we pause to honor the sacrifices of those who have fought and died serving this country in the American armed forces. 

In honor of Memorial Day, President Joe Biden issued a Proclamation and Prayer for Peace. He stated, “This Memorial Day, we honor the brave women and men who made the ultimate sacrifice for our Nation’s freedom.“

The president continued, “We recommit to keeping our sacred obligation to their survivors, families, and caregivers. Together, we vow to honor their memories by carrying on their work to forge a more perfect Union.“

“To all those grieving the loss of a loved one who wore the uniform, including our Gold Star Families, and to all those who have a loved one still missing or unaccounted for: Our country sees you and mourns with you,“ he added. “May God bless our fallen heroes.  May God bring comfort to their families. May God protect our troops.“

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • With gratitude for courageous service members who have laid down their lives in defense of the United States of America throughout its history.
  • For God’s comfort for the families who have lost loved ones in service to this nation.
  • For discernment for the president as commander-in-chief and for his defense advisors.
  • For God’s protection over the military personnel currently serving in the U.S. Armed Forces.
