God of power and mercy,
you destroy war and put down earthly pride.
Banish violence from our midst and wipe away our tears,
that we may all deserve to be called your sons
Keep in your mercy those men and women
who have died in the cause of freedom
and bring them safely
into your kingdom of justice and peace.
We ask this though Jesus Christ our Lord.
P.S. I know this Morning Reflection is a tad bit late. I am just realizing the draft did not schedule and send like I thought I told it to! Technology. SMH.
