Give to everyone what you owe them: …if honor, then honor. Romans 13:7 (NIV)
With unspeakable gratitude we honor those who have served and those who are serving to preserve the principles and godly heritage of our forefathers. May we never forget the sacrifices of our military and their families and friends at home who loved and supported them that we might all enjoy freedom. And may we never cease to protect those values for which many gave their lives.
Father, be with our men and women around the world who serve our country that we might continue to live in a free nation. Bring health and healing to them when they suffer, bless them, and help us to honor them with our gratitude. In our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
