Prayers for Memorial Day

May 12th, 2011

Call to Worship

We gather on a somber holiday.
We remember with sadness those we have loved and lost.
Let us not glorify the conflicts and violence that tear our loved ones from us.
Let us, rather, give glory to God, who calls us to use our freedom peaceably.
Our God is a God of all nations and peoples.
May our worship of God unite rather than divide.

Words of Assurance

The Christ who bore in his own body the sin of the world offers us not judgment, but mercy. In the name of Jesus Christ, we are forgiven.


Now may the God of love so equip you with the Holy Spirit’s advocacy that you might more and more love God by obeying the commandments of Christ. Go in peace. Amen.
