For A Brother In The Military To Stand Firm

O God in Whom I trust, I bring my brother, who is in the military and far from home, before Your throne of grace and ask that You would help him to keep strong in the faith and to stand firm in the place to which You have called him to be.

Give him courage and keep him safe I pray, and may he hold fast to the Word of truth, knowing that in all things we are more than conquerors, through Christ Jesus our Lord.

I also ask Your protection over any who have fallen into the hands of the enemy and are being used as hostages or for political bargaining. I particularly am thinking of Bowe Bergdahl, the only American POW in Afghanistan, who has been in custody since June 2009. Give him courage and return him home to his family speedily.

Lord, we know that until the Prince of Peace Himself comes to put everything right, the world will remain in turmoil, but Father protect my brother, Bowe Bergdahl and all our brothers in Christ that are in the military at this time. In Jesus' name I pray,
