Prayer Diary: Week beginning 8 November: Remembrance

  • Let us remember the courage, the devotion to duty, the self-sacrifice of the men and women in our armed forces, the toil, the endurance, the suffering of those who were not in uniform, the support of those from afar
  • Let us remember those who were wounded in the fight, who perished in air raids at home, who fell in battle, who are buried at sea or in some corner of a foreign field
  • Let us remember those who were our enemies, who also lost parents, children, brothers, sisters, friends, who also lost homes, hopes, dreams
  • Let us remember those who came back, whose lives still bear the scars of war, who lost sight or limbs or reason, who lost faith in God and hope for humanity
  • Let us remember those currently caught up in wars – the military personnel and the civilians
  • Let us remember God’s will for his world, his continuing care for us and his call to us to follow in the way of Christ

They shall not grow old
as we who are left grow old
Age shall not weary them
nor the years condemn
At the going down of the sun
and in the morning
We will remember them.
