As we celebrate Memorial Day and the start of the summer vacation season, let us remember those men and women in the armed forces who sacrificed their lives so that we might enjoy our freedom. We often hear a lot of complaints regarding the affairs of our country. However, our country is still the greatest place to live on earth. So, enjoy pulling out the grill, enjoy the children playing and spending quality time with family and friends. However, before starting the Holiday festivities be sure to take a moment and reflect and thank God for those who helped to make America a great place to live. Remember those fallen soldiers, the known and the unknown.
Lord, thank you for an awesome place to call home, bless the United States, our President and all those who make decisions that determine our well-being as a country. We pray for those who sacrificed their lives for our freedom and Lord we pray for an uncommon measure of grace and favor upon those they left behind. All of the spouses, children, parents and other family members, bless them in Jesus’ name, Amen.
