Almighty God, our Heavenly Father, in whose hands are the living and the dead; I give You thanks for all those of Your servants who have laid down their lives in the service of their communities, counties, states, and nation - the United States of America. Grant to them Your unconditional love, mercy, the light of Your presence, and the assurance of Your peace. In Christ Jesus, I pray. Amen.
