Midweek News – Nov 10


Tomorrow is Remembrance Day. 

We will not be offering our weekly Thursday morning Zoom gathering tomorrow. We invite you to take time tomorrow to participate in a televised, or an in-person Remembrance Day service, or to pause for your personal time of remembrance.

For reflection and prayer, we include this ‘Prayer for the Armed Forces’:

“O God of hosts,
God who calls us to be engaged in the world;
we pray for those who are serving in our Armed Forces;
soldiers, sailors, air personnel,
and those who provide support for them.

We pray for clerks and gunners,
navigators and parachute packers,
infanteers and public affairs officers.

We pray for those who care for those who fight:
for mental health nurses,
doctors, and chaplains.

We pray for those who put themselves in harm’s way;
for Search and Rescue Technicians,
for those engaged in mine-clearing,
for those in the air or on the high seas.

Keep them safe in their tasks;
keep them virtuous in their calling;
preserve them from danger,
and return them to those who love them.

(This prayer is included in a collection of Remembrance Sunday worship prayers compiled by Rev. Dr. Neil Parker, military chaplain at the 4th Canadian Division Training Centre in Meaford, Ontario)
