Irenic Thoughts

Irenic. The word means peaceful. This web log (or blog) exists to create an ongoing, and hopefully peaceful, series of comments on the life of King of Peace Episcopal Church. This is not a closed community. You are highly encouraged to comment on any post or to send your own posts.


A Prayer on Veterans' Day

On this day for remembering all who have served in the armed forces, we pray for those now serving in wartime with a prayer written by The Rev. Jennifer M. Phillips:
God our Stronghold and Shield: Watch over those dear to us serving in this time of war. Go before them to make their path safe, Shelter them by night and by day. Lift them up when they grow weary. Fortify their hearts when they are afraid. Defend them through the storm in the assurance of your presence and mercy, and keep them in the companionship of Jesus, through whom we pray. Amen.
This prayer and others are part of King of Peace's ongoing online Prayer Vigil in Time of War.
