Memorial Day : Today we remember, mourn and give thanks for the military men and women who have given their lives in pursuit of justice, peace and freedom for our country and all nations.

                                          Prayer Ventures, Living Lutheran, May 25, 2020

God, give us grace to accept with serenity the things that cannot be changed, courage to change the things that should be changed, and the wisdom to distinguish the one from the other: living one day at a time, enjoying one moment at a time, accepting hardship as a pathway to peace; taking, as Jesus did, this sinful world as it is, not as we would have it; trusting that you will make all things right, if we surrender to your will; so that we may be reasonably happy in this life, and supremely happy with you forever in the next.
