Heavenly Father, hear my prayer as I hold up the nations of the World honouring their fallen comrades, Bless them, Father, for being those who mourn, rain peace and a consoling spirit upon all those remembering in spirit and body. Be with them, Father, as they go about their lives this coming year. This I pray in the name of Yeshua Amen and Amen.
Nov. 11, 2022, marks another year for us to remember the past Worldly conflicts, which claimed the lives of those who saw fit to fight for what they believed in. What goes through the mind of an individual joining the armed forces knowing the possibility they may not come back from conflict yet is willing to proceed.
Is it out of honour, pride or a sense of duty? We will never know and should not question any of their decisions? However, I believe we need to respect those decisions for whatever reason they were made.
“However,” if I were to speculate those reasons, I think they would
approve me thinking, “LEST WE FORGET,” they were fighting for the right to be able to worship without persecution. “LEST WE FORGET“ they were fighting for peace so we can walk down our streets without being accosted about our beliefs. “LEST WE FORGET” they were from immigrant families who came to escape tyranny and assimilated into a country of Law-abiding citizens who lived in harmony and maintained their cultural beliefs.
“LEST WE FORGET” they knew anybody could be successful if they applied themselves. “LEST WE FORGET” really means other than a rallying cry, a time to remember those fallen and what they gave themselves for.
I believe at the time these sacrifices were being made, it was for a God-fearing Country that was tolerable to those it welcomed.
But believed those immigrating would become a part of the country’s Culture, which expounded anyone’s ability to fit into our Country and Culture without being persecuted for their religious belief or walk of life. They knew and believed those features of our Culture of Peace and Harmony would be carried forward and honour their sacrifice over the years to maintain these countries’ values and principles.
In closing a short prayer Heavenly Father I ask you to bring upon all to remember the heritage this day represents in the building of a Great Nation of your peoples. Rain your blessings of knowledge, discernment and, most of all, understanding of the truth which lies before them as those who fell for their freedom to exercise their right to honour and remember them. I pray this in your name Yeshua Amen and Amen.
A Humble Servant sharing our Lord’s compassion. Yea, I walk through the valley of the shadow of death. I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Psalm 23:4
