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
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
beset them; and grant them a sense of your abiding presence
they may be; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
