God of love and justice,
today we remember all men and women who died in defense of our country and its freedom.
Help us to honour their sacrifice
through our prayers and actions for peace in our world.
Send your Spirit to help us to let go of misunderstandings,
hatred and prejudice
so that we may grow together as one family.
Guide our steps in the way of peace
We ask this prayer through Jesus Christ,
the Prince of Peace.
