A Prayer for the U.S. Air Force
Almighty and everlasting Father,
You are the ruler of the universe and all who dwell therein.
We earnestly ask that You grant to all Airmen
Victory over principalities of the air
That they may remain spiritually free from all oppression and darkness.
Equip them to lead Your people to victory
That our skies and land will remain abundantly free and prosperous
And a beacon to the world of eternal freedom.
Enlighten their minds by the Spirit of truth,
And be gracious unto them.
Grant them the wisdom to discern
Between the profane and the Holy
So they may be spiritually vigilant throughout all their missions.
Grant them the mind to do Your will, O Lord,
In the face of adversity and in service to Your people.
We give You thanks and honor for the courage
You have bestowed upon them
Whether on land or heavens
To reach up and touch Your face
As they fulfill Your will.
Through Jesus Christ our Lord we pray. Amen.
– Former Air Force Chaplain James F. Linzey
