Veteran's Day, 2009

Demetrius, patron saint of warriors

This prayer was in an email sent out by Sojourners today:
On this day, we remember the peace accord that brought the First World War to a close. And as we honor and thank military veterans around the world for their service, we also remember those who have suffered great physical, emotional, psychological, and spiritual damage as a result of such service, and we pray for their restoration. Moreover, we yearn for that day when swords will be beaten into plowshares, and we will make war no more. May it come to pass, Lord, and soon.
And I will say, "Amen," to that. And, "Amen," again.
