A Prayer for Veterans (Cari Willis)

Many thanks to the Rev. Cari Willis, one of the Chaplains at the Veterans Administration Medical Center in Durham, NC, for submitting this prayer:

Lord, surround those with trauma from wars past and present with your abiding love and peace. Give new vision to those who only see the blood and destruction of war every time they close their eyes. Give understanding and patience to those who love those who have partaken in war who remain traumatized by all they were witness to. And give your hope for a new day to those who want it all to end today.  Amen.
