Teach us to Live

God of love – Forgive! Forgive!
Teach us how to truly live,
Ask us not our race or creed,
Just take us in our hour of need,
And let us know You love us too,
And that we are a part of You …
And someday may man realise
That all the earth, the seas and skies
Belong to God who made us all,
The rich, the poor, the great, the small,
And in the Father’s Holy Sight
No man is yellow black or white,
And peace on earth cannot be found
Until we meet on common ground
And every man becomes a brother
Who worships God and loves each other

This is the time of year when we remember our fallen not only during two world wars but also during subsequent wars. May we continue to remember them down through the generations and may the red  poppy, the symbol of their great sacrifice, be looked upon with reverence.

Dear Lord,

We remember the great sacrifice of many brave men who gave their lives for our freedom.  May the families of those who mourn them be aware that we too have not forgotten. Be with them Lord at this very poignant time of year.

We pray for those who have been injured either mentally or physically.  Many have lost limbs and we marvel at their tenacity as they build new lives for themselves, many turning to sport and achieving great things. Bless them all Lord. We think of the many who have come back from battle with no visible scars but because they have witnessed many atrocities they now suffer with  post traumatic stress disorder. Bring to them peace Lord.

We bring before you Lord the families of those brave soldiers and ask that you give them the strength, the comfort and compassion to cope with the many stresses they endure.

We pray for all the soldiers who are still involved in conflict and ask for their safe return, but most of all Lord we pray for peace. Peace among nations, so that men women and children no longer need to fear war and all the horrors it brings.

This we ask in your name Lord,

Amen.

God Bless You All!
