Two more British soldiers have been killed in Afghanistan. This was yesterday. One was from 3rd Bn The Rifles, the other from 30 Armoured Engineers. Our thoughts and prayers are with the families, friends and colleagues of these men. Father of all mercies and God of all consolation, you pursue us with untiring love and dispel the shadow of death with the bright dawn of life. Give courage to the families in their loss and sorrow. Be their refuge and strength, O Lord, reassure them of your continuing love and lift them from the depths of grief into the peace and light of your presence. Your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, by dying has destroyed our death, and by rising, restored our life. Your Holy Spirit, our comforter, speaks for us in groans too deep for words. Come alongside your people, remind them of your eternal presence and give them your comfort and strength. Amen They shall grow not old As we that are left grow old. Age shall not weary them Nor the years condemn. At the going down of the Sun And in the morning, We will remember them

By laying down their lives, they showed supreme love for others. Accept, we ask You, their sacrifice and their belief in the justice of the cause they died for. Let their offering not be in vain. Please forgive any sins and faults they may have committed. Speedily, we implore You, bring them into Your Presence where fear, sadness, mourning, and death cannot exist. Have pity in Your loving kindness on those they leave behind. In Your own unsearchable ways, make good for their absence, and lavishly bestow Your love and consolations on those deprived of their presence. This we ask in the Name of Christ, our Victor King. Amen. They shall grow not old As we that are left grow old. Age shall not weary them Nor the years condemn. At the going down of the Sun And in the morning, We will remember them
