As Veterans Day approaches (Nov. 11), we invite you to pray for our veterans, the men and women who have sacrificed so much to defend and protect our precious liberties.

Prayer for Veterans

Almighty God and Father, look with love upon our men and women in uniform and protect them in their time of need. Give them health and stability and allow them to return to their loved ones whole and unshaken. Be with their families and sustain them in these uncertain times.

Grant strength and peace of mind to the Veterans who have given their best for the country they love. Support them in infirmity and in the fragility of old age. Teach us to remember their sacrifices and to express our gratitude.

Hear us as we present our prayers to You through Christ our Lord
