This prayer is from A Pastor Prays for His People by Wendell C. Hawley
Father God, we thank you for those of yesteryear who left home and family
to defend our country;
we enjoy the fruit of their sacrifice--we worship you in freedom.
Remember your children, worldwide, who want to worship you openly,
but dare not.
Grant openness to the gospel in those places of satanic oppression.
Remember those of our extended family required to be in harm's way
and all our military family.
Keep them from hurt and destruction.
Shield them from all harm.
Enable them to boldly and faithfully live a Christian life,
and may their testimony before fellow soldiers bear eternal fruit.
We pray all conflicts will end speedily
and the gospel's power will permeate all those troubled lands.
Give divine wisdom to our national leaders
that they may govern in ways that honor you.
