A prayer for remembrance

O God of truth and life, during these turbulent times – with violence and loss once again at the forefront of world affairs – help us to lift our eyes above the torment of this broken world.
As together we honour the past, may we put our faith in your future; for you are the source of life, health and hope, now and forever.
Let us pray for all who suffer as a result of conflict, and ask that God may give us peace: For the service men and women who have died in the violence of war, each one remembered by and known to God; may God give peace.
For those who love them in death as in life, offering the distress of our grief and the sadness of our loss; may God give peace.
For all members of the armed forces who are in danger this day, remembering family, friends and all who pray for their safe return; may God give peace.
For peace-makers and peace-keepers, who seek to keep this world secure and free; may God give peace.

Prayer written by The Revd Richard Smith (Army chaplain)
