I feel honored to have been a part of such a great tradition and grateful to others who have walked the same path. Thank you!” ― Steve Maraboli

Prayer for Veterans

Thank you Lord, for all of our Veterans. May we honor them and learn from them as they tell us their life stories. They have battled for our freedom. They have considered the cost and chosen to serve a greater cause than themselves. Bless them Lord. Protect them with you Divine Protection. And heal any wounds that they may have received in body, mind, and spirit for their sacrifice has been great, in Jesus Name.
