Iraq: A Soldier's Story of Faith

Prayer For the Safety of Soldiers

Almighty and eternal God, those who take refuge in you will be glad and forever will shout for joy. Protect these soldiers as they discharge their duties. Protect them with the shield of your strength and keep them safe from all evil and harm. May the power of your love enable them to return home in safety, that with all who love them, they may ever praise you for your loving care. We ask this through Christ our Lord.

Prayers for our Military Men & Women -- from the Franciscans

Too bad the Commander in Thief is not a Christian. According to him, we are no longer a Christian nation, even though 85% claim to be Christians. I am glad most in the military are Christian.
