A Soldiers Prayer

The Soldier

When I am called to serve,
Dear Lord,

Wherever war may be,
Give me courage to fight the battles.
my country may ask of me.

Grace me with Your presence,
And know that I loved You,
while I fight the enemy,
my country needs me to.

Help me protect my comrades,
As You expect me to,
And keep me in Your loving hands,
while I do what I must do.

I want to do my duty,
And give the best in me,
To do what I’ve been called to do,
and protect our liberty.

And if, according to Your will,
I must give up my life,
Please bless Your protecting hand,
My children and my wife
