|Remember Them - 404|
It is with great sadness and anger, that we record the death in action of six more British soldiers in that worthless piece of ground, Afghanistan. We have now lost 404 of our people who have given their lives in their fight against terrorists of the Taliban.
As we think of those six lads, we pray for their families and friends.
Father of all mercies and God of all consolation,
you pursue us with untiring love
and dispel the shadow of death
with the bright dawn of life.
Give courage to the families in their loss and sorrow.
Be their refuge and strength, O Lord,
reassure them of your continuing love
and lift them from the depths of grief
into the peace and light of your presence.
Your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ,
by dying has destroyed our death,
and by rising, restored our life.
Your Holy Spirit, our comforter,
speaks for us in groans too deep for words.
Come alongside your people,
remind them of your eternal presence
and give them your comfort and strength.
We will remember them
