My friends, I want to do something different
for this Veterans Day to honor our brave veterans,
past and present. So I shall share with you this
beautiful prayer for our brave fellow Americans.
This lovely prayer outdoes everything that your
appreciative Peasant has said on past Veterans
Days, as well as anything further that I could
say this Veterans Day. I know not its author,
but this prayer is a heartfelt tribute to all our
selfless, patriotic veterans who have helped us
to be and to remain a free country which bows to
no one but our Heavenly Father.
You are our Creator and Sustainer.
You are our Light and our Fortress.
You are our Wisdom and our Strength.
Lord, you moved upon men to establish this great
nation. You stirred men to hope and to dream for a
land of freedom. We praise for this great nation.
Lord, you have inspired many of our best and brightest
to volunteer to proudly stand and defend our beloved
country. You have given us brave and loyal men and
women who have steadfastly served in their chosen
branch of our military.
We gather today to remember our military personnel.
We acknowledge that their service enables us to walk
as free men and women in this great land.
Lord, today we seek to honor your sons and daughters
who have served or are serving our country. We are
reminded that because of their service we can live in
We ask that you abundantly bless those who have
previously served. May their service time be rewarded
in every way. May they gain earthly and heavenly
blessings from their unselfish love of country.
Lord, we stop now and remember those who are currently
serving. We ask that you provide them with your protection,
your strength, and your peace. We ask that you would
abundantly provide for all their needs. We ask that you
would enable them to overcome every personal and
professional obstacle. We ask that you would protect
their families from hurt and harm.
May each of our veterans feel honored not just today but
Father, we also give special recognition to our wounded
warriors. We realize that many of our heroes are dealing
with physical and emotional wounds that occurred as a
result of their time of service to our country.
We ask that they would be given the best treatments
available and that you would add your supernatural
blessings to all the efforts given to them to help them.
We ask that you, Lord, would show them miracles as
they seek to gain health, stability, and wholeness.
We pray these things in Jesus' name,
