*LITANY FOR MEMORIAL DAY

In peace let us pray to the Lord:

For those who have given their lives for their country and whose graves we visit this Memorial Day weekend, that they may rest in God's peace and that their sacrifice may inspire in us who live a commitment to the ideals for which they perished, we pray to the Lord.

Lord, hear our prayer.

For our veterans, whom we have sent to far countries on our behalf, and who for us have often endured fear, trauma, and sorrow that no human should have to face, that they may receive healing of their hearts and a welcome home from their towns, their families, and their churches, we pray to the Lord.

Lord, hear our prayer.

For our men and women serving under orders this day, especially those who may be in situations of danger or captivity, that they may be inspired by the ideal of duty, may conduct themselves with honor, may love country second only to God, and may receive strength equal to every challenge they face, we pray to the Lord.

Lord, hear our prayer.

For families of men and women now on active duty, families of veterans, civilian families who have suffered in time of war, and especially those families whose tables will always have an empty chair, we pray to the Lord.

Lord, hear our prayer.

For our leaders, who have the power to promote peace and justice or to extinguish life itself from our planet, that any and all decisions relating to the use of armed forces may be preceded by prayer and accompanied by agony, we pray to the Lord.

Lord, hear our prayer.

For ourselves, our congregation and pastor and all persons of faith, that recognizing the expression in works which must result from an experience of faith, we may be builders of community as well as seekers of salvation, we may seek outer peace as well as inner harmony, and justice for our world as well as fairness for ourselves, to the end that the dwelling of God may be with us, and we shall be God's people, that the former things pass away and war shall be no more, we pray to the Lord.

Lord, hear our prayer. Amen

card sales. Last year alone, FUMC raised $6,206 through this very simple and valuable ministry that everyone can participate in. Hy-Vee cards are available for sale each Sunday before and between worship services. A special thanks to all past and present church members and office staff involved in this ministry.
