A prayer for our veterans —

By CIY Staff

Heavenly Father,

Our U.S. military veterans are precious people to us and we thank you for them on this Veterans Day. They have served our country in all sorts of capacities, both in foreign lands and domestic, with sacrificing service we wish to honor.


Please bless our veterans with joy, healing and peace. Surround them with your love.


As they have protected this nation, we ask you to protect them. You have heard their prayers and their cries. You know their hearts in ways we never could. Let them take refuge in you as their Savior.


Empower us as Kingdom workers with hearts of warriors the way you have created our veterans to glorify your name. Let us learn from our veterans to understand loyalty, sacrifice and love. We cherish your bride, the Church, and recognize the roles our veterans serve her.


Thank you for loving us all – in Jesus’ name we pray,


Amen.
