Remembrance Day 2021

On Thursday 11th November at 11am, the whole school gathered in the hall to 

commemorate Armistice Day, also known as Remembrance Day.

It marked the day World War One ended, at 11am on the 11th day of the 11th month, in 1918.

We respectfully held a two-minute silence  at 11am to remember the people who died in WW1 and who have died in all wars since. We used that time to reflect on the suffering many have endured during the many wars this world has seen, and we concluded with a prayer, praying for peace and end to suffering.

Prayer for Remembrance Day

Let us pray for all who suffer as a result of conflict,

and ask that God may give us peace: God give peace.

for the service men and women who have died in the violence of war,

each one remembered by and known to God;

may God give peace. God give peace.

For those who love them in death as in life, offering the distress of our grief

and the sadness of our loss;

may God give peace. God give peace.

For all members of the armed forces who are in danger this day,

remembering family, friends and all who pray for their safe return;

may God give peace. God give peace.

For peacemakers and peacekeepers, who seek to

keep this world secure and free; may God give peace. God give peace.

For all who bear the burden and privilege of leadership,

political, military and religious; asking for gifts of wisdom

and resolve in the search for reconciliation and peace;

may God give peace. God give peace.

 

O God of truth and justice,

we hold before you those whose memory we cherish,

and those whose names we will never know.

Help us to lift our eyes above the torment of this broken world,

and grant us the grace to pray for those who wish us harm.

As we honour the past, may we put our faith in your future;

for you are the source of life and hope, now and for ever.

Amen.
