Simple Soldier’s Prayer

by Matt (Amarillo, Texas)

Father, watch over my family.

Father, watch over my men.
Father, watch over me.

If I must fall today, be it for a just cause.
If I must fall today, protect those I lead.
If I must fall today, comfort my family.

If my men must fall today, be it for a just cause.
If my men must fall today, comfort their families.
If my men must fall today, take them to your Kingdom.

If I must kill today, than let the deaths of my enemy serve justice and peace.
If I must kill today, let my aim be sure and let their passing be swift.
If I must kill today, take those that fall under the shadow of your wings.

That Justice may reign.
That Freedom may ring.
Amen.
