Remembering Pearl Harbor Video and Prayer

Updated: Dec 13, 2021

Today we remember 80 years ago when The United States was attracted by our then Enemy Japan.

Pearl Harbor Day 2021

The Rev TSgts Robert Phillips (ret)

“O God of our Fore-Fathers, we open our hearts today for the sacred memory of those who gave their lives on that day which will live in infamy.

Bless us, O Lord, as we humble ourselves in Thy presence to remember

our shipmates and friends who served our country so valiantly and without reservation. The call went out We Are At War and our men and women rose to fight!

Help us not disgrace those who still lie in the stillness place through our indifference or forgetfulness.

Rather, help us to always remember Pearl Harbor and help us to keep America alert.

Let us never forget that more than 2,000 of our sons, fathers, brothers, and friends were killed and more than 1,000 citizens of our land were wounded on December 7, 1941.

These sacrifices were not in vain. We are eternally in remembrance.

Each one defended America’s freedom and demonstrated America’s goodness.

Heavenly Father, we give thanks for the brave men and women who embodied your love by making this ultimate sacrifice.

You have declared “greater love hath no man than this, than to lay down

his life for his friends” (John 15:13). Help us be willing to follow their example when duty calls.

We also give thanks for those who survived the attack on our country and who went on living in a way that portrayed honor to a watching world.

They carried on with life even as they bore deep within them the haunting memories of what they witnessed, heard, and felt.

Bless them with continued grace and mercy from your outstretched hand. Guide us and direct us in all that we do.

Let us live to bring glory and honor to Thee. This we pray in the Name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, Amen.”
