The king asked, “Is there no one still alive from the house of Saul to whom I can show God’s kindness?”

2 Samuel 9:3

Whatever we think of Saul’s polices, he and his son, David’s closest friend, died in battle defending their people. Across the world today, those who have been killed or injured in battle are remembered gratefully.
Let us pray and care also for children bereaved or orphaned in military conflict, and those who care for them.
