A Veteran's Prayer

Dear Lord, We honor our veterans, worthy men and women who gave their best when they were called upon to serve and protect their country.  We pray that you will bless them, Lord, for their unselfish service in the continual struggle to preserve our freedoms, our safety, and our country's heritage, for all of us. Bless them abundantly for the hardships they faced, for the sacrifices they made for their many different contributions to America's victories over tyranny and oppression.  In Jesus' name we pray. Amen.
