On this day those who served their country as warriors are honored and celebrated.
To serve and defend our country, we the people require our warriors take a journey into hell, for as General Sherman observed in the United States Civil War, “War is Hell.”
To thank them for their service we offer up a prayer of healing.
I ask we all pray for healing them from the hurts that their service has created, physically, emotionally and mentally. We pray and encourage them to receive the grace and healing power of self-forgiveness and compassion as we honor their self-forgetfulness and service.
May they be held within the healing power of Love as they are granted the grace of putting it all behind them with the healing power of letting the past be in the past.
We pray for their healing from the hurts our failures inflicted as we as a society and a world called upon their sacrifice to wage war instead of keeping peace.
Veterans Day is a reminder that Peace is the goal as the date 11-11 celebrates the end of the United States First World War, known as the war to end all wars.
At this time, we pray for world peace and we pray that people everywhere can find peace so that we need not sacrifice any more warriors on a field of conflict.
We ask that this be a time of healing and a day of honoring Peace.
We ask that the wounds of war be healed in the hearts and minds of all we have sent forth to do battle.
We ask for wisdom for governments and leaders everywhere to find the path to peace.
We pray that war becomes unthinkable as a solution in the world, as we as a world realize that we only war against ourselves, for we are One World and One Humanity.
Amen. Lord make it so.
As a thank you and to facilitate healing for all the wounded warriors I am offering a collection of three guided meditations at no cost to veterans or any enlisted arm forces over the Veterans Day weekend. Please share it freely with any you think will benefit from using them.
