A Soldiers Prayer

by Andrew P. (England)

Almighty and everlasting God, by whose grace thy servants are enabled to fight the good fight of faith and ever prove victorious. We humbly beseech thee to inspire us, that we may yield our hearts to thine obedience and exercise our wills on thy behalf. Help us to think wisely; to speak rightly; to resolve bravely; to act kindly; to live purely. Bless us in body and soul, and make us a blessing to our comrades. Whether at home or abroad may we ever seek the extension of thy kingdom. Let the reassurance of thy presence save us from sinning; support us in life, and comfort us in death. O lord our God accept this prayer for Jesus Christ`s sake. Amen
