God of love and liberty,
We bring our thanks today for the peace and security we enjoy,
We remember those who, in time of war, faithfully served their country.
We pray for their families, and for ourselves, whose freedom was won at such a cost.

This we pray in the name of the one who gave his life for the sake of the world, Jesus Christ, our Redeemer.
