Heavenly Father, thank You for bringing me safely to the beginning of this day and I place my life and my future into Your hands. Thank You, Lord, that You have promised to be with me no matter what happens and I pray Your protection over me and over all the ranks of men and women who have been sent here for this assignment.
May the angel of Your presence be round and about and no matter what I am called to do, I pray that I may rest in the shelter of Your wings, for You are my Lord and my Saviour. Give me a quick mind to respond as I should to all that I am called upon to do today, and give me the wisdom when I am called upon to deal with a difficult situation, so that I do not compromise my safety nor that of my fellow soldiers.
Protect and defend me I pray by Your grace and power, and I may not be ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God unto all who believe. Fill me I pray with the Holy Spirit grace and knowledge and keep me safe until that day when You call me to be with Yourself in heavenly places. In Jesus' name,
