Memorial Day 2018
Tomorrow is the day when we honor all those…Who gave their lives in the cause of freedom. Freedom is a precious thing. There have been many wars fought. Many lives have been lost to pay the cost for freedom.
This Memorial Day gives us a chance to take a moment to remember those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our country. I encourage you to make this holiday more than just another three-day weekend. We can take many small actions to show our gratitude: say a prayer for our fallen heroes, take some time to visit with a widow, or lay flowers by a war memorial.
We owe a tremendous debt of gratitude to those who sacrificed their lives for our freedom.
We can begin to repay our lost service-members by not forgetting, and by remembering what they did and why they fought: for our state, for our nation, for our freedoms, and for future generations. I know I will never forget.
Memorial Day Prayer
O Lord, We have come this morning to remember and in our remembering to seek your comfort and strength. We remember all those killed in battle throughout our nation’s history.
But we are appalled by the casualty lists from all those wars. We are surrounded by memorials of the revolutionary war, the war of 1812, the unbelievable bloodshed of the civil war, the First World War, and wars in which many of us have served. Absent from us are the casualties.
With us are the survivors of the Second World War, Korea (the forgotten war), Viet Nam, The Gulf War, Afghanistan, Iraq. Those we also honor.
May the men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our country live forever in our memories.
And may we honor them by doing everything we can to protect freedom for future generations, whenever, and wherever, it is threatened. May God bless this congregation, our Armed Forces, and God bless America.
We also remember this day the saints from this congregation who have gone to their reward. They wore the armor of righteousness. They fought the good fight. They gave us this heritage. They help make this church what it is, a House of God in which the Children of God worship You.
Most of all, oh God, we remember the death and resurrection of our Savior, Jesus Christ. We take courage in the sure and certain hope of the resurrection and the knowledge that Christ has conquered sin and death. Amidst a history of war and rumors of war; amidst our experience of illness and accident; amidst all of life’s uncertainties we turn to you, for you are the rock of our salvation.
