War Memorial Prayer:

Almighty God: humbly we bow our heads and kneel before Thee to render thanks for Thy mercy and loving-kindness, and for the safe return of those who fought on land, on sea, and in the air to guard our liberties. Vouchsafe Thy spirit to be the companion and strength of those broken in mind or wounded in body. Grant to us to care for them in gratitude and love that they may live midst security and merited honour. Hold close in Thy safe-keeping we beseech Thee the souls of those whose sacrifice was supreme: lighten the sorrow of those who mourn with the presence of Him who gave his life that all might live. Grant understanding to the people of all nations that thy kingdom of peace be forever established on earth through the mediation of thy Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
