A Prayer for the U.S. Army
We earnestly ask that,
Out of Your loving and tender mercies,
You would place within the minds of Your Soldiers
The knowledge to do Your will
In times of war and in times of peace.
Graciously impart to Your Soldiers
The wisdom to discern Your will, O Lord,
And the moral courage to implement Your will
In their daily lives.
Lead Your Soldiers to call upon You
So that by Your power they may advance
From victory to victory,
Crushing the oppression of wickedness
That would otherwise defeat them.
And we ask that You would use the Army
As one of Your righteous tools
To establish Your justice throughout the world.
Through Jesus Christ our Lord we pray. Amen.
– Chaplain (MAJOR) James F. Linzey, ARNG (Ret.)
