My Memorial Day Prayer
Look down on the Stone Towers dotting our land.
Help them speak to us once and forever, again.
Imbue us with an entombed heroic patriot’s heart.
Give us the strength to give liberty a new start,
Help us find a way to invigorate new generations
So they too know all the glory of our nation.
Give voice to the enormity of their sacrifice.
Allow us to fully appreciate the sacrificed lives.
Show us the truth in waving Stars and Stripes.
Have them teach all that those colors never ran
While raised by our valiant warriors’ hands.
Strengthen our resolve to see tough times through.
Bestow on us the wisdom to lean on You.
Let us not be deaf to the Stone Towers’ words.
In Your Son’s Name let us all remember
Those who served…now serve…and will serve.
