Hearts are heavy now, dear Lord
For WAR is looming there.
Our prayers are calling out to you,
Our thoughts too much to bear.
Be with our loved ones--THEY NEED YOU.
Guide them, lead them, see them through.
Bless our leader, for we know,
He asks Your blessings, and needs them so.
Protect the innocent, shield their lives,
As bombs and missiles streak the skies.
Open our hearts and fill us with grace,
Guard our loved ones in that place.
This I say, in earnest prayer,
THANK YOU LORD
I know YOU'RE there.
So brief, but God knows our hearts
and feels the pain for all of us.
Our military, our president, we who wait at home and those innocents whose lives are in harms way too.
I can barely watch the news,
but am drawn to it all the same.
This prayer is on my lips and in my heart,
almost every minute.
GOD BLESS AMERICA,
and all of your children,
wherever they are.
A Soldier's Prayer
God our Father,
Help me to remain true to my ideals
during my service to my country.
Help me be what is in America,
the land of the free.
May I realize that I represent
what our country stands for.
My uniform is a symbol of duty and valor
both in peace and in war.
I take up arms to defend what all Americans hold dear:
life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
Grant me the strength to live according to these ideals,
the courage of my convictions, and the resolve to endure whatever dangers threaten.
With you at our side I fear no evil
and resist every enemy,
secure in the knowledge
that you hold me in the palm of your hand.
No harm will befall you, no disaster will come near your tent.
For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways.
Psalm 91:10 - 11
