Today we honor our veterans,
worthy men and women who gave their best
when they were called upon
to serve and protect their country.
We pray that you will bless them, Lord,
for their unselfish service,
bless them abundantly for the hardships
they faced, for the sacrifices they made.
We respect them, we thank them,
we honor them, we are proud of them.
And we pray that you will watch over
these special people and bless them
with peace and happiness.
