Happy Veterans Day!

Liberty comes at a price and the men and women who serve our country are willing to pay that price for our freedom and for peace. Often, we don’t dwell on the dangers that face our servicemen and women as they work to protect our freedom. But, it is there. Today we honor and celebrate those who are willing to put their lives on the line for millions of Americans through their service in our armed forces. We are grateful to each and every one of you. Today, we thank you, we salute you, we honor you Veterans!

“Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.”

-John 15:13

Happy Veterans Day!

“It’s about how we treat our veterans every single day of the year. It’s about making sure they have the care they need and the benefits that they’ve earned when they come home. It’s about serving all of you as well as you’ve served the United States of America.”
-President Barack Obama

We Owe Them a Lot

On Veterans Day we remember again
Our men and women who served;
We honor them now for what they did then:
The liberties they preserved.

Let’s never forget their sacrifice,
The hard, heavy work they have done;
They did what was asked, crucial needs they fulfilled,
With a telephone, pencil or gun.

We’re happy and proud to honor them;
They gave so much more than they got.
Our heroes, our veterans kept freedom safe;
All of us owe them a lot.

A Veteran’s Day Prayer

Dear Lord, We pray for blessings on this assembly
of extraordinary men and women,
who did things most people don’t want to do,
went to places we would never want to visit,
and lived at length in uncomfortable surroundings
we can’t even imagine.
They did what they did from devotion
to their country’s freedom, honor and reputation.
They endured difficult service
because they are exceptional people,
a cut above the rest of us,
who live safe, comfortable lives.
We pray that you will bless them mightily, Lord.
Lavish on them now
abundant comforts and pleasures
they so often did without.
We pray that our country
will always honor their service
expressing frequently profuse gratitude
for their service to keep us safe and free.
In Jesus’ name we pray; Amen.

The Noble and the Brave:
A Veteran’s Day Tribute

When America had an urgent need,
These brave ones raised a hand;
No hesitation held them back;
They were proud to take a stand.
They left their friends and family;
They gave up normal life;
To serve their country and their God,
They plowed into the strife.
They fought for freedom and for peace
On strange and foreign shores;
Some lost new friends; some lost their lives
In long and brutal wars.
Other veterans answered a call
To support the ones who fought;
Their country had requirements for
The essential skills they brought.
We salute every one of them,
The noble and the brave,
The ones still with us here today,
And those who rest in a grave.
So here’s to our country’s heroes;
They’re a cut above the rest;
Let’s give the honor that is due
To our country’s very best.

Bless Them Abundantly:
A Veteran’s Day Prayer

Dear Lord,
Today 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.
We respect them, we thank them,
we honor them, we are proud of them,
and we pray that you will watch over
these special people
and bless them with peace and happiness.
In Jesus’ name we pray; Amen.
