Memorial Day…remembering those who serve

Monday, May 29, 2023  – Memorial Day

RSNY is praying for you, a peaceful Memorial Day weekend. Though the unofficial start of summer may not be quite the same this year, it still provides the opportunity to connect with loved ones, even if at a distance, and honor the men and women who have sacrificed their lives to defend our freedom. Our thoughts are with all those who may have lost someone while they were serving our country, and we pray for the safe return of all those currently serving.

A Prayer of Gratitude for Veterans

O God, we give you praise for these people who have allowed us to serve and worship You in freedom. We do not take for granted that there are millions of Christians around the world afraid of prison or even death because of what they believe. Our veterans are a significant reason why we do not fear and we thank You for them. Amen.   Prayer Source: Sarah Frazer
