Remembrance Day

Remembrance Day has a special significance in 2018.        

Sunday, 11 November 2018 marks the 100th anniversary of the Armistice which ended the First World War (1914–18).

One hundred years ago, on 11 November 1918, the guns of the Western Front fell silent after four years of continuous warfare. With their armies retreating and close to collapse, German leaders signed an Armistice, bringing to an end the First World War.

We pray:

For all who have served the cause of peace in our armed forces

For all who have lost loved ones due to war, 
For all who continue to suffer due to war, 

For all who long for Your peace, 
For all who dedicate their lives to Your peace, 
For all who bring Your comfort to veterans and their families,

For all of us – called to be messengers of Your peace, 

AMEN
