Loving God, we mourn those who have died in wars.

May we cease to cause needless deaths,

and may those necessary deaths occur only in the service of justice and freedom,

so that so many future deaths in that cause will prove unnecessary.

In the name of Jesus, who conquered death;

who came to serve and not to be served;

who lived, died, and rose again for the redemption of generations not yet born;

and whose ethical teachings challenge us still.  Amen.

KENNETH RANDOLPH TAYLOR
