A PRAYER FOR THE ARMED FORCES
Almighty God and Father of all mankind, we humbly beseech you to save our Armed Forces through the blood of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, who died for all mankind that we might live through faith in Christ alone. Renew our Armed Forces through the transforming power of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. May your mind be its guiding wisdom, and your Spirit its saving light. Redeem, O Sovereign Lord, our service men and women from sin and the despair that comes from moral failure. Grant them spiritual life and spare them from misery and guilt wrought about by wickedness. Raise up our military as a standard bearer of the cross of Christ so that all of our military men and women will be lead to victory—both temporal and eternal. Through Jesus Christ our Lord we pray. Amen.
– Chaplain (MAJOR) James F. Linzey, ARNG (Ret.)
