My Memorial Day Prayer

My Memorial Day Prayer

Father God,

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

Which truly do not know the glory of our nation.

Give voice to the enormity of their sacrifice.

Allow us to fully appreciate the sacrificed lives.

The freedom they bought for many survives.

Show us the truth in waving Stars and Stripes.

Please remind us that those colors never ran

While raised by our valiant warriors’ hands.

Strengthen our resolve to survive tough times too.

Bestow on us the wisdom to lean on You.

Let us not be deaf to the Stone Towers’ words.

Those souls are exalted and our spiritual swords.

In Your Son’s Name let us all remember

Those who served…now serve…and will serve.
