Military Prayer - 3
|Our Heavenly Father:|
We come to You today as Your children saved by the grace of Jesus Christ. Father we have no one else to come to when our burdens are heavy and our hearts are breaking. Would You give us a rock when we ask for bread? Would you give us a snake when we need Your love?
No, for the Word says, “The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.” Oh, Father please hold our honored dead to Your heart. Please comfort their families and friends and ease their pain in the knowledge that their loved ones have given up their lives in defense of freedom and their country.
For Lord we know freedom is a gift from You. Freedom is something that we must pass on, not only to our future generations but also to the entire world. It is a terrible burden we bare. But bare it we do because You said, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.”
Lord, give us strength and power to win this war. Give us wisdom and humility in victory. Help us to do Your work oh Lord and guide us to kill the enemy of freedom wherever they might be. Give our grieving the perfect assurance that they will see their loved ones again. Give our wounded the perfect assurance that someday soon they will be whole again with new arms and new legs.
Let our hero's fight in the Lord's army until we are again united in Your glorious presence. And until then may we fight on in the knowledge that we are doing God's work.
Your Children in Jesus Christ
