Dearest Heavenly Father, We come to Your feet today to lift up our hands in praise and magnify Your Holy, all-Powerful name. We also call upon You in faith today .
Lord, hear us as we pray for all military soldiers serving in deployment around the world. In war-torn countries, which are so far from their homes, those that put their lives unselfishly on the line each day so that we may feel safer.
We humbly ask You to place Your Mighty arms around them. Guard them from the evil one and from those that plot and plan against them with violence and destruction.
Please fill their hearts with firm determination, unflinching courage and that peace that surpasses all understanding.
Philippians 4:7 And the peace of God, which passes all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
Overcome and Conquer Fear
Father God, may our brave heroes always overcome any fear that has found its way into their hearts. May our soldiers be able to overcome this fear and trample it underfoot because of Your Mighty power, and because Your amazing and redeeming love shines upon them.
Please place Your angels around them each night as they sleep and let Your eye, ear and hand be on each serviceman and woman.
Psalm 34:7 The angel of the LORD encamps around those who fear him, and he delivers them.
Psalm 139:5 You have enclosed me behind and before, And laid Your hand upon me.
Protect our Warriors
Almighty Father, we beseech You to protect our dedicated warriors with your Mighty Shield of Strength. Keep them all from harm and return each one of them safely home again into the waiting arms of their loving families.
In Memory of Those who Served
Heavenly Father, on this memorial day, we give thanks for those brave veterans who have given their all to protect this country. Bless them and their families.
Give them to strength to cope with life after the military. And may they know how grateful we are for their service. We ask You to hear our prayer Father, in the name of our Redeemer, Your Son, Christ Jesus. Amen.
Psalm 61:3 For You have been my refuge a strong tower against the foe.
