Loving God, this prayer is dedicated to the many men and women who gave their lives for the American people and in defense of America’s freedom or were in the line of fire when the enemy attacked. In gratitude for their supreme sacrifice, I pray God’s peace, comfort and blessing upon the family members and loved ones left behind. May God fill that empty place in their lives with his healing and restore to them his great love and cares. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
