Monday Morning Offering: Memorial Day

Image: George Mendoza


Good morning, good God!

We pray today, Lord:
remembering those who died,
who’ve passed from this life to the next
to meet, at last, their Maker, 
you, the lover of their souls...

We pray today, Lord:
remembering those gone long before,
marked with signs of faith,
marked as yours in ways unknown
to us and others' grief...

We pray today, Lord:
remembering those who gave their lives
without a thought of self,
who laid down all that we might stand
in freedom dearly won...

We pray today, Lord:
remembering selfless souls and
purpled hearts who marched 
with courage sure and brave 
down roads we’d not dare tread...

We pray today, Lord:
remembering love in sacrifice
so freely, fully given
but easily forgotten by just the ones
for whom the gift was made..

We pray today, Lord,
we offer you our thanks and praise,
our memories 
of those who loved by giving all they had
for all who stood in need…

Good God of Monday mornings,
receive our praise and prayer
and be with us this Memorial Day
and every day this week...

Amen.
