Rest eternal grant to them, O Lord.
And let light perpetual shine upon them.
May their souls,
and the souls of all the departed,
through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
For the Armed Forces
Almighty God, we commend to your gracious care and keeping all the men and women of our armed forces at home and abroad. Defend them day by day with your heavenly grace; strengthen them in their trials and temptations; give them courage to face the perils which beset them; and grant them a sense of your abiding presence wherever they may be; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
O God, it is your will to hold both heaven and earth in a single peace. Let the design of your great love shine on the waste of our wraths and sorrows, and give peace to your Church, peach among nations, peace in our homes, and peace in our hearts; through your Son Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
