Memorial Day in the United States is a day of remembering those brave men and women who died in service. I admire the courage and selflessness of these individuals. May we remember and honor them on Memorial Day and every day. Below is a poetic prayer as well as the link to a poetic eCard. Thank you for joining me in this prayer. May God bless you, and may God bless all who defend our freedoms.

A prayer solemn

I offer this Memorial Day:

It is for our valiant Veterans

I do humbly pray.


Selfless, sacrificial,

Risking death gallantly –

Soldiers do all this

To ensure I am free.


So many have died

There on the battleground;

No music then to comfort,

Simply gun blasts all around.


So many names and faces

That I will never know;

So many stories of bravery

In warring winds did blow.


Grateful am I to these

Men and Women brave;

I marvel at all they did,

All they risked, all they gave.


Extend this heartfelt prayer

I will, to reach their ears;

How treasured they are to me,

Marching onward despite fears!


And for those who have passed,

May God bless them lavishly,

These very ones who died

So that I would live free.


In the stories of Veterans

I see a shadow of the Cross:

Christ died to set me free,

My gain is through His loss.


Gratefully I praise these heroes,

Often silent and unknown.

And I remember Christ’s blood

From which eternal life is sown.


To those who have fought

There on the battleground,

I pray God’s blessings to you

Will eternally abound.


Selfless, sacrificial,

Risking death gallantly –

Yes, you have done all this

To ensure I am free.


A prayer solemn then

I offer this Memorial Day:

It is for you, valiant Veterans,

I now humbly pray.

    My husband is a military veteran and so are several men in my family. It’s a great sacrifice to put your life on the line for your country, so yes it is a shadow of what Jesus did for us on the cross. Thank you for this beautiful prayer. Prayer for those who are still fighting for our freedom is the best thing we can do.

    Have a Victorious Day!
