A Short Prayer For A Soldier

Dear Father

I am not alone,
You are by my side.
Hold me, guide me,
As I seek you serve you.
You have called me to rescue,
To protect and to make peace.
I am not alone,
You are by my side.

A Prayer For those in the Armed Forces

Almighty God,
we commend to your gracious care and keeping all the men and women of our armed forces at home and abroad.
Defend them day by day with your heavenly grace;
strengthen them in their trials and temptations;
give them courage to face the perils which beset them;
and grant them a sense of your abiding presence wherever they may be;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.

May the three enfold you
Father, Son and Holy Spirit
Hold you safe and hold you strong

May the three encompass you
Father, Son and Holy Spirit
Encircle your life each day and night

May the three protect you
Father, Son and Holy Spirit
Guard your door and keep each gate

May the three watch over you
Father, Son and Holy Spirit
Still your heart and calm all fear
