Prayer For The Fallen
They have sacrificed their lives to protect our shores from those who would limit our freedoms, or enslave us to ways that are against Your will. Bring all those who have died in service to our country into
Your heavenly presence.
We humbly call down Your blessing on those still serving; grant Your heavenly protection to these men and women, and open Your Sacred Heart to give them peace and comfort.
In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.
