I write my thesis with the memoir class and want to include an Acknowledgment in the same style as the standard abstract from the memoir class. How can this be done?

You can create a new environment acknowledgments that behaves like abstract but prints Acknowledgments:

\newenvironment{acknowledgments}
{\renewcommand{\abstractname}{Acknowledgments}\abstract}
{\endabstract}

Example:

\documentclass{memoir}

\newenvironment{acknowledgments}
{\renewcommand{\abstractname}{Acknowledgments}\abstract}
{\endabstract}

\begin{document}
\begin{abstract}
Some Text
\end{abstract}
\bigskip
\begin{acknowledgments}
Some Text
\end{acknowledgments}
\end{document}

Output:
