This final battle scene in the acclaimed war movie "Hacksaw Ridge" is perfect to illustrate two important points in celebration of our men and women who risk their lives for us to be safe in American.
#1. PRAYER PROTECTS.
#2. THE BIBLE MAKES ONE BRAVE.
Please take the time to watch this clip. As you do, whisper a prayer -- using this or another scripture -- to celebrate them.
Scripture: Blessed be the Lord, my rock, who trains my hands for war, and my fingers for battle; he is my steadfast love and my fortress, my stronghold and my deliverer, my shield and he in whom I take refuge, who subdues peoples under me. Psalm 144:1-2
On this Memorial Day, we pray for those who courageously laid down their lives for the cause of freedom. May the examples of their sacrifice inspire in us the selfless love of Your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ.
Bless the families of our fallen troops, and fill their homes and their lives with Your strength and peace.
In union with people of goodwill of every nation, embolden us to answer the call to work for peace and justice, and thus, seek an end to violence and conflict around the globe.
We ask this through your name.
