God – Last Thursday would’ve been Gordon’s 75th birthday. In honor of him I dedicate this prayer to You for him and all soldiers who served with honor in times of peace and times of war to preserve the peace we all hold dear.
God, please guide all leaders in Congress and in the Executive Branch to provide the medical care needed by those who have sacrificed so much and yet returned home to America’s shores with dismemberment, PTSD and much less good health.
Please spare our Veterans the war they have had to fight to win the benefits, care, and recognition which should have been simply provided to them in gratitude for their selfless service.
God, please shine your light and love on all heroes not forgotten on Earth or in Heaven including my brother in law, Gordon.
In Gordon’s memory and as my 75th birthday present to him I repost my poem of June 3, 2017 following his death.
May he and all other heroes be not forgotten. Amen
If you like this prayer, please share.
