A VETERANS DAY SERVICE INVOCATION
Today we honor those who have served our country and given their lives so that we may be free and live out our God given destiny. We need to always remember the gift of freedom and of those who gave all to make sure future generations may continue to know life in a free, democratic society.
Remembering those who have passed is only half of the task of thanksgiving for their many contributions to our country. We must also carry their love, honor and duty forward for future generations. Our children must continue to know who they were, what they did and why they did it. We need to pray in thanksgiving to treasure and honor their sacrifice and their memory. Those heroes who are living or gone before us have created a clear pathway for us to continue on in freedom and democracy. Let us reverence their memories, take their dreams and walk forward championing the cause of freedom. Let us carry prayerfully their witness each day with honor and respect so their legacy will never be forgotten. Lets us become one with all the good they have accomplished and carry on their love of country and zeal for freedom. We entrust them and their loved ones to God and his choicest blessings now and always. Amen
