Prayer for the Safety of a Soldier

by AEL (NJ)

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.

    A dear friend of mine is one of the bravest soldiers I know and hold very close to my heart. He has been deployed for a year and is scheduled to return home soon. Please say a prayer to all those who fight and have fought for us.
