C      Amen.

P      We pray the word’s our Lord taught us to pray:

C      Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name,

              thy kingdom come, thy will be done,

              on earth as it is in heaven.

              Give us this day our daily bread;

              and forgive us our trespasses,

                  as we forgive those who trespass against us;

             and lead us not into temptation,

             but deliver us from evil.

             For thine is the kingdom, and the power,

             and the glory, forever and ever. Amen.

A Reading of Psalm 29

Ascribe to the Lord, O heavenly beings,
    ascribe to the Lord glory and strength.
Ascribe to the Lord the glory of his name;
    worship the Lord in holy splendor.

The voice of the Lord is over the waters;
    the God of glory thunders,
    the Lord, over mighty waters.
The voice of the Lord is powerful;
    the voice of the Lord is full of majesty.

The voice of the Lord breaks the cedars;
    the Lord breaks the cedars of Lebanon.
He makes Lebanon skip like a calf,
    and Sirion like a young wild ox.

The voice of the Lord flashes forth flames of fire.
The voice of the Lord shakes the wilderness;
    the Lord shakes the wilderness of Kadesh.

The voice of the Lord causes the oaks to whirl,
    and strips the forest bare;
    and in his temple all say, “Glory!”

The Lord sits enthroned over the flood;
    the Lord sits enthroned as king forever.
May the Lord give strength to his people!
    May the Lord bless his people with peace!

P      The Word of our Lord

C      Thanks be to God.

P      Let Us pray:

C   Lord Almighty, on this memorial day, we lift up before you all those men and women who served this country, who gave of their lives so that others may be free, safe, and have hope for a better tomorrow. In you we see the glory of the coming day, when all wars will cease and evil is put away. In you we see the glory of the coming day of your power and reign. Until that great and glorious day Lord, guide us in your ways of peace and seek to end all that hurts and destroys the way of your love, found in your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

P      Almighty God, Father, †Son and Holy Spirit

        bless you in peace now and forever. 

C      Amen.
