A Defending Crusader…

The best defense is to be good and offensive…or something like that.

To All Vets

Posted by Godefroi on November 11, 2008

Vets Day

Thank you for your selfless service, providing our safety and security in this great nation (and many foreign ones as well).  Your sacrifices have made us possible, and on your mettle we stand.

I humbly honor you all.  God Bless You.

Dear Heavenly Father,

In every age, You call certain persons to defend the human family from oppression, tyranny, and evil. Since our founding as a nation “conceived in liberty,” countless American men and women have stepped forward to defend our country and many others from aggressors, and to liberate those held captive.

Today we revere all our veterans: those who rest in honored glory, those who still suffer from the wounds of war, and those who, with us, enjoy the blessing of living in the land of the free and the home of the brave.

O God, thank You for the selfless sacrifice of these veterans and of their families. Help us to remember them, to pray for them, and to care for them. Please bring all our departed veterans into Your Kingdom, and console their families with Your unfailing love. Please heal our wounded veterans through the power of Your Holy Spirit, and give to all our veterans the satisfaction of having served You even as they have served us.

Thank You for Your gifts of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. May we fight to keep these rights available to all. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.

    OK…it’s probably pretty dorky to comment on my own post, but I’ve got The Ballad of the Green Beret stuck in my head, and I just have to tell you all…or me…or something.

    Right.
