Prayer for Our Military

O Prince of Peace, 
We humbly ask your protection for all our men and women in military service.
Give them unflinching courage to defend with 
Honor, dignity and devotion 
The rights of all who are imperiled by injustice and evil. 
Guard our churches, our homes,
Our schools, our hospitals, our factories, our buildings, 
And all those within from harm and peril. 
Protect our land and its people
From enemies within and without. 
Grant an early peace with victory
Founded upon justice. 
Instill in the hearts and minds of me and
Women everywhere a firm purpose to live forever in peace and
Good will towards all. Amen.

God Bless Our Soldiers

A world of Peace where it’s safe to be,
A world in Harmony would be a world victory
God Bless the day when, when nations won’t need your might.
God Bless the day when, when you no longer must fight.
God Bless our soldiers who fight for Freedom and Peace and Justice.
Our Soldiers who put their lives on the line,
Brave Soldiers
So many Soldiers who sacrifice for mankind.

Pray for the Soldiers

Our that day there were thousands on the mall, in Washington DC.
Some were standing silently
Others waved their flags
The band played
“The star spangled banner”
The crowd sang 
“God Bless the USA”
When the president stepped up on the platform, he said…
Please join me as we bow our heads to pray
My fellow Americans,
We are gathered here
Cause we have soldiers who are fighting over there.
We ask the Lord to give them his protection
That they would feel the very presence of God above
Father send your angels to guard each one…
With your power, your wisdom, your love.

Please Bless Our Deployed Soldiers

Look, God, I have never spoken to you before
But now I want to say:
“Please bless our deployed soldiers!”
You called Abraham and Sarah to leave their homeland
And to journey away from their own went.
I have never spoken to you before
But now I want to ask you to 
Protect our children, our husbands and wives,
Our mothers and fathers, and our friends and loved ones
Who now must leave to fight in this war.

A Soldier’s Prayer Poem

Lord, I ask for courage.
Courage to face and
Conquer my own fears…
Courage to take me where
Others will not go.

I ask for strength…
Strength of body to protect others…
Strength of spirit to lead others.
I ask for dedication…


A Marine’s Prayer Poem

Almighty Father,
whose command is over all
and whose love never fails,
make me aware of Thy presence
and obedient to Thy will.
Keep me true to my best self,
guarding me against dishonesty
in purpose and deed
and helping me to live so that I can face
my fellow Marines, my loved ones, and Thee


A Sailor’s Prayer Poem

Dear Lord, I’m just a sailor
A protector of our land.
A servant called to battle
When my country takes a stand.
I pray for strength and courage
And a heart that will forgive.
For peace and understanding
In a world for all to live.


An Airman’s Prayer Poem

Lord guard and guide the men who fly,
Through the great spaces of the sky,
Be with them traversing the air,
In darkening storms and sunshine fair.

Thou who dost keep with tender might
The balanced birds in all their flight,
