Prayer for Memorial Day

Lord God Almighty, in whose Name the founders of this country and those whom we remember on this Memorial day won and defended liberty for themselves and for us, and lit the torch of freedom for nations then unborn: Grant that we and all the people of this land may have grace to maintain our liberties in righteousness and peace; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

-Prayer adapted from the Collect for Independence Day, Book of Common Prayer, pg. 242
