A Prayer on the 80th Anniversary of D Day

As we commemorate the 80th anniversary of the D Day landings, a prayer to remember the courageous actions of those involved.

God our refuge and strength,
as we remember those
who faced danger and death in Normandy,
eighty years ago,
grant us courage to pursue what is right,
the will to work with others,
and strength to overcome tyranny and oppression,
through Jesus Christ,
to whom belong dominion and glory,
now and for ever.
