Today is Remembrance Sunday, when all around the world at 11am many will have stopped what they were doing and observed several minutes silence in memory of all those men and women who have lost their lives in conflicts around the world.

Many brave men and women have been killed or injured fighting for their country and today is the one day each year when spend thinking about and remembering them. unfortunately for the families of those who have been killed or those who’ve been injured, they don’t just think about their situation once a year, it’s with them 365 days a year, 7 days a week, 24 hours a day.

It’s not much that is asked of the rest of us to spend a few minutes thinking about and praying for these brave folks once a year, so I hope wherever you are, whatever you were doing, you found time to stop for just a few minutes a pray for our soldiers past and present, and also their families and friends.

Here in Britain, each year the Royal British Legion launch their Poppy Appeal to raise funds to help with look after the welfare of thousands of serving and ex-Service people – I hope you were able to contribute to this great cause. Though if you haven’t done so yet, there’s still time, as you can make a donation at the Royal British Legion website.

Please continue to pray for all our service men and women – They need our prayers!

I love the song Letter From War by Mark Schultz – it fits in well with today’s theme, so I hope you enjoy it too:
