A Prayer for Our Troops

This week a friend of mine was deployed to Afghanistan.  Our church has been in prayer for him, his wife and son.  This prayer is lifted up for all those who serve our country.   May the Lord bless them all.

A Prayer for our Troops

Thank you Lord for those who serve,
Who help protect this land.
Be with them and keep them safe
Hold them in Your mighty Hand.
Give them the strength and wisdom
To do what they must do.
Watch over them and keep them safe
Until their job is through.

And don’t forget their families Lord,
They also need your touch.
Things at home just aren’t the same
When there are loved ones you miss so much.
So we pray for our soldiers Lord,
Bless these women and men;
Be with them wherever they go
And bring them home safe again.

About pastorpstephens

I have been blessed to have served as a pastor, a chaplain and to have been involved in other ministries throughout the years. My wife Marta and I have been blessed with a wonderful family that includes our daughter, her husband and their two daughters and our son and his wife and their son. Each of them are very special to us so please keep them all in your prayers. One truth that I always try to share with people I meet is that anything God asks you to do, He will help you to do. God has your back.
