Prayer of the Day

This prayer is for Cindy Sheehan and all the mothers and fathers who have lost precious children in the War on Terror. May they take the words to heart and realize why their children chose to be a part of the military and the mission.

I pray that our Heavenly Father may assuage the anguish of your bereavement, and leave you only the cherished memory of the loved and lost, and the solemn pride that must be yours to have laid so costly a sacrifice upon the altar of freedom.
