On This Memorial Day

Columban Daily Prayer
May 29, 2023

Ever living Father, on this Memorial Day,
we pray for those who courageously laid down
their lives for the cause of freedom.
May the examples of their sacrifice
inspire in us the selfless love
of Your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ.
Bless the families of our fallen troops,
and fill their homes and their lives
with Your strength and peace.
In union with people of goodwill of every nation,
embolden us to answer the call to work
for peace and justice, and thus, seek an end
to violence and conflict around the globe.
We ask this through Your name.
