In Remembrance

My friends, if there is to be peace, there must be forgiveness. And as we sometimes sing, "Let peace begin with me," so let us pray for forgiveness to begin with each of us and ask God's blessing on those we find difficult to forgive.

For the enemies of our nation...we pray;
Lord Hear Our Prayer

For those whose politics are different from ours...we pray,
Lord Hear Our Prayer

For those whose religion is different from ours...we pray,
Lord Hear Our Prayer

For other Christians with whom we disagree...we pray,
Lord Hear Our Prayer

For people with whom we work who make life difficult...we pray,
Lord Hear Our Prayer

For friends who have disappointed us...we pray,
Lord Hear Our Prayer

For family members who are making life a struggle...we pray,
Lord Hear Our Prayer

We remember those who have died...
Lord Hear Our Prayer

For those died with whom we did not have an opportunity to have a last word, final embrace. And today we especially remember all those who die as victims of war, terrorism or other acts of violence...we pray,
Lord Hear Our Prayer

Good and gracious God, hear us and help our prayers be sincere by conforming our hearts to what we know to be right, to what we know to be the call and command of your Son, Jesus, our Lord forever and ever. Amen.
