|Remember Them 424|
A soldier of 1st Bn. Grenadier Guards has been killed whilst on Guard in Afghanistan. His family have been informed.
We offer our thoughts and prayers for the family of this soldier as well as for the previous 423 who have given their lives in that conflict.
You are all-powerful, God, and live forever in light and joy. Look with pity and love, we beg You, on those men and women who bravely fought and gallantly died for their country. By laying down their lives, they showed supreme love for others.
Accept, we ask You, their sacrifice and their belief in the justice of the cause they died for. Let their offering not be in vain. Please forgive any sins and faults they may have committed. Speedily, we implore You, bring them into Your Presence where fear, sadness, mourning, and death cannot exist.
Have pity in Your loving kindness on those they leave behind. In Your own unsearchable ways, make good for their absence, and lavishly bestow Your love and consolations on those deprived of their presence. This we ask in the Name of Christ, our Victor King. Amen.
They shall grow not old
As we that are left grow old.
Age shall not weary them
Nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the Sun
And in the morning,
We will remember them
