Thanksgiving for Heroic Service
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. This we ask in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
–Book of Common Prayer 1979, p. 839
This prayer and thanksgiving is suitable for Veteran’s Day, Memorial Day, and any remembrance of servicemen and servicewomen or public servants.
