A Prayer for ANZAC Day

Lord God,
Help us this day to remember the sacrifices of the first ANZAC’s
Australian and New Zealander,
And the generations of men, women and children
Who have died in the cause of liberty and peace
Help us to remember those who still bear
The physical and mental scars and disabilities of their service
Help us to remember the widows, girlfriends, parents and orphans
And all those who waited in vain for the return of a loved one
Help us to remember the mateship, agony, courage and
Compassion of war service, but save us from ever glorifying
The horror and tragedy of war
Lord God,
Help us to remember.

Lest we forget!
