Prayer: Thank You Lord, for the men and women of our armed forces. Protect them as they protect us. Defend them as they defend us. Encourage and strengthen their spirit, soul and body in the execution of their duties and responsibilities. May they be mentally and physically strong when required to face the challenges of combat. Undergird them with Your spirit and might when they are called upon to endure the hardships of battle. I pray that nothing would take them by surprise but that they would be aware of all potential aggression. Enable them to curtail hostile actions before they start. Reveal to military leaders the strategies and plots that enemies would wage. Give leaders wisdom and insight in all decisions. May response to any aggression by enemies of this nation be swift, accurate and effective. Father, give our military favor with the government agencies of this country. I pray that our Congress would appropriate sufficient funds to keep our nation's military preemininent in the world. Thank You, Lord, for providing America with the best trained, equipped and lead militaty force in the world today. Fill them with Your saving grace and the gospel of peace that they may be witnesses of Your love, in the name of Jesus. "Thank you & Blessings be with you!"
