Prayer for Memorial Day

Eternal rest grant unto all those who made the ultimate sacrifice for their God and country, O Lord.  Eternal rest grant unto all those veterans who have passed away.  Peace and long life grant to those still living, both of past and present wars.  Grant those who are serving their country peace, protection and strength.  Ensure quick and safe passage home for those who have finished their service. 

Lord, soften the hearts of those who would lambast and condemn our veterans and serviceman and bring them to an appreciation for those who risked their and lives and sacrificed for their freedom that they enjoy today.  Bless the families of veterans and servicemen and give them strength of heart and hope.  Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, pour out your tender mercy upon them.  Amen.

Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for them.
Saint Joan of Arc, pray for them.
