Prayer for Memorial Day. O Judge of the nations, we remember before you with grateful hearts the men and women of our country who in the day of decision ventured much for the liberties we now enjoy. Grant that we may not rest until all the people of this land share the benefits of true freedom and gladly accept its disciplines. This we ask in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. (Book of Common Prayer, p. 839)

Prayer of Lament O God, you made us in your own image and redeemed us through Jesus your Son: Look with compassion on the whole human family and especially in this Episcopal Diocese of New York as we lament our past complicity in slavery, racism, and the unfair treatment of all peoples; take away the arrogance and hatred which infect our hearts; break down the walls that separate us; unite us in bonds of love; and work through our struggle and confusion to accomplish your purposes on earth; that, in your good time, all nations and races may serve you in harmony around your heavenly throne; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

We hold in our prayers: Harold Cronk, Fatima Mishk, Kimberly DeShon, Shelley Henderson, Naomi Henderson, Aida Carino, Liliana Moschetta, Carmen Hanchard, Paul Rogan, Tom O’Connor, Charlotte Avallone, Len LaRosa, The Rt. Rev. Richard Grein, Nancy Headley, Margaret Embree, Aaron Cohen, Monica Harmon, Chester Evans, Felix Benzan, Beverly Sims, Clyde Mahoney, Ralph Tremonte, June & Waine Kniffen, Peter Walsh, and The Rev. Canon Claudia Wilson. We pray for tighter gun control, for those in war-torn countries--especially Syria, Afghanistan, Israel, and Palestine, and for our President, our country, our first responders, all refugees and immigrants, and our military.

We pray for those who have died including: including Dr. Young Kun Kim, The Rev. David Boyd Wayne, Kevin O’Connor, The Rev. Dr. Mitties DeChamplain, those who died in the Cuban plane crash, the Texas school shooting and the New Jersey school bus accident, and for all those the world over who have died from war and especially, on this Memorial Day weekend, we remember our military who have died in service to their country, and today we also lament those who have died over the centuries due to slavery, lynching, racism and the unequal  and unjust treatment of peoples in this country.
