LUNCH (Sext)



into thy hands we commend the souls
of those who laid down their lives
for the cause of freedom;
praying that thou wouldst grant them
the joys of thy eternal kingdom,
and, to all who mourn them,
fortitude of spirit and constant faith
in the power of thy love;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Special Prayer

Let us give thanks to God for the freedoms we enjoy;
for the courage of those who served
during the Battle of Britain in the Royal Air Force,
the Royal Auxiliary Air Force,
the Royal Air Force Volunteer Reserve,
the Women’s Auxiliary Air Force,
for those from the Commonwealth
and other allies who lent their support
and especially for those
whose lives were lost in the cause of liberty.
