Today marks the commemoration of D-Day when Allied troops invaded Nazi-occupied Europe. The following is an excerpt from a prayer read by President Franklin D. Roosevelt to the nation:
”[Our men] fight to liberate. They fight to let justice arise and tolerance and goodwill among all Thy people. They yearn but for the end of battle, for their return to the haven of home. Some will never return. Embrace these, Father, and receive them, Thy heroic servants into Thy kingdom.” ~Quote taken from In God We Still Trust, A 365 -Day Devotionalby Dr. Richard G. Lee, Thomas Nelson, 2010.
Our men and women in military service continue today to fight for our freedom. Please take a moment to pray for their safety and for their families. Pray for all who come home without limbs, those suffering from post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and all weary from battle. Pray for the families of those who do not make it home.
The men and women of our United States of America Armed Services deserve our prayers, our respect, and our help. Serve a service person and their family in whatever way you can. May God bless each one and keep them safe.
