O for Offering: we are thankful for those soldiers who bravely offered their lives, fighting in wars to try and make others safe.
P for Prayer: we pray for the safety of those still serving in wars, we pray for those who have lost friends and loved ones, and we pray for those who have been injured.
P for Peace: Remembrance Day does not celebrate or glorify war, but remembers it and the importance of us continuing to pray for peace.
Y for You: You can make the choice to bring peace to your own life and the life of those around you. You can pray for God’s peace to guide and comfort you. We all play a part in keeping the memory of war, of bravery and suffering. We also need to remember to play a part in caring for those who are bereaved or injured. Our lives, and our actions may also hold the key to a more peaceful future. We, together are offering praise and prayer to God and hoping for peace.
