Lord, thank You for the men and women in our armed forces. I pray Your protection over each one as they carry out their various duties in defence of our country. Wherever they are in the world, I pray that You would lead and protect them from all the forces of evil.
I pray Your protection over each individual and every regiment and crew. May they be equipped to carry out their duties in a manner that is pleasing to You.
I pray that those that are in authority over military matters, would make their decisions based on Your truths and be kept from implementing worldly philosophies and unbiblical attitudes on our troops.
Be with every believer in the military who has accepted the Lord Jesus as their Saviour. I pray that the actions that they are required to make, will not compromise their trust in You.
I also pray that those who have made a commitment to live their lives as unto You, will be able to witness to all those who are living and working alongside them. Keep each one safe, and may each one grow in grace and in a knowledge of the Lord Jesus in the days that lie ahead. In Jesus' name,
