A Collect for Memorial Day

While you enjoy the beautiful weather this holiday, take a moment to give thanks for those members of our armed forces who have given their lives and those who risk them today.

A collect for heroic service (p. 839, Book of Common Prayer):

O Judge of the nations, we remember before you with grateful hearts the men and women of our country who in the day of decision ventured much for the liberties we now enjoy. Grant that we may not rest until all the people of this land share the benefits of true freedom and gladly accept its disciplines.
