Prayer to Remember Those Who Serve:
O God, in whom the generations of humanity live and move and have their being: We remember with gratitude all those who have sacrificed in serving others.

To the end that these courageous souls shall not have given so much in vain, may we receive with proper appreciation the benefits of their sacrifice, and bless us to carry on to further fulfillment their dearest hope for this their land and ours;
