Memorial Day Confession


Here’s a unison prayer of confession for Memorial Day or Remembrance Day. It was written by Rev. Robb McCoy.

Prayer of Confession for Memorial Day

God of every nation, as we remember those that gave their life for our sake, let us be stirred to action in their memory. We confess that we have not done all that is possible to promote peace and justice in our world.  We have not loved our neighbors, let alone our enemies.  Forgive us for failing to live up to your commandments. Empower us to work for your Kingdom in this world, and welcome us by your grace into your Kingdom in the next.  Amen.
