The Sparta Spirit
A Memorial Day Prayer
We remember, O Lord, all those people throughout the years who have made the supreme sacrifice for our country, for liberty, for us. Whenever we breathe the air of freedom or claim the right to justice or enjoy the privilege of worship, fill us with gratitude for those who selflessly gave the last full measure of devotion — their very lives — for our benefit.
May these brave men and women now know the joy of eternity and your presence. And may the families of the fallen receive comfort and peace amid their grief. Help us as we minister to their needs.
Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
“We are not here to be successful. We are here to be faithful.”
“The wise man doesn’t give the right answers; he poses the right questions.”
“The point is not to pay back kindness but to pass it on.”
Happy 198th Birthday, Sparta!
