When we meet our maker some of us will say,
Lord, we fought against those that slaughter others for power and gain. We fought against those that misused your name and ridiculed you. We stood against the forces of darkness when our fellow man emboldened them and called us murderers and baby killers for doing so. We gave up our freedom for a time so those that spewed hate against us could remain free. We didn’t do it for monetary gain, Lord, but to oppose the enemies your adversary placed on earth. We don’t ask for glory, Lord that belongs to you. Please forgive us, Lord, for what we had to do, but your promise of free will was important us, so important that we sacrificed of ourselves and have been looked down upon by our fellow man for it ever since. We only pray that we may be accepted into your fold when our time comes and that our sacrifices were not made in vain. For those that show disdain for us, Lord, we pray that you forgive them, as did your Son on the cross, for they too know not what they do.
