Prayer For Those In Military Service Past And Present
(From The United Methodist Book of Worship)
Righteous God, you rule the nations. Guard the brave men and women, past and present, in military service. Give them compassion for those who confront them as enemies. Keep our children from hate that hardens, or from scorekeeping with human lives. Though for a season they were or must be people of war, let them live for peace, as eager for agreement as for victory. Encourage them as they encourage one another, and never let hard duty separate them from loyalty to your Son, our Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen.
