ANZAC Day 2021
You might find it helpful to pray the following prayer:
God of love and liberty,
we bring our thanks today for the peace and security we enjoy.
We remember those who in time of war
faithfully served their country.
We pray for their families,
and for ourselves whose freedom was won at such a cost.
Make us a people zealous for peace,
and hasten the day
when nation shall not lift up sword against nation
neither learn war any more.
This we pray in the name of the one who gave his life
for the sake of the world:
Jesus Christ, our Redeemer. Amen.
Pray too that men and women all over the world will come to know the true “Prince of Peace,” Jesus Christ, and that guided by him, nations will live at peace with one another. There is no other way.
