God,source of all life and love, free us from the tombs in which our fears, past hurts, and resentments imprison us,and draw us into your eternal life now and forever. We ask you this through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Let us remember, before God, and commend to his safe keeping those who have died for their country in war;
those whom we knew, and those whose memory we treasure;
and all who have lived and died in the service of the peoples of the world.
