Military Prayer
 
Dear Lord,
 
GIVE ME the wisdom to lead, and the humility to follow.
 
GRANT ME the dedication to work untiringly for my country, its people and our freedom.
 
TEACH ME to be the best I can be, for myself and for others around me.
 
FILL ME with the strength, the courage, and the willingness to do the job I'm called to do.
 
HELP ME to believe in truth, speak out for justice, defend the flag and uphold the American ideals
that make our country the wonderful land it is.

Join us in Prayer for our Armed Forces

Almighty God, we commend to your gracious care and keeping

all the men and women of our armed forces at home and abroad. 

Defend them day by day with your heavenly grace; strengthen them

in their trials and temptations; give them courage to face the perils

which beset them; and grant them a sense of your abiding presence

wherever they may be; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
