Heavenly Father, on this day, help us remember those who gave of themselves to keep us safe and secure.
Enkindle in our consciences a desire to serve those who served their country selflessly.
Give us the grace to aid those who have given aid and protection to us and others both here and overseas.
Let is never forget the causes for which they fought or the bravery they showed on the battlefield.
May we be always be mindful of those who paid the price for our freedom, just as your Son gave his life to free us from the bondage of sin.
