A Prayer for Our Military:

Lord, counsel and sound wisdom is yours, You are the God of all the earth, there is nothing that is hidden from Your sight. We come to You Lord and ask for Your wise counsel to be with our military leaders. We acknowledge Lord, that apart from You we can do nothing. Please give our commanders the wise guidance they need, and the wisdom they need for success. Confound the wisdom of the wicked Lord, and give Your strategies to our troops. Guide them with Your eye upon them and bring them through to safety and peace. Amen.

A Prayer for Our Military...Past & Present:

Father, we could never thank our military men and women enough for their courageous service and sacrifice to our country and its people. Yet today we lift up our voices to express gratefulness and honor to these military troops both from the past and present. Show us ways in our communities, churches, and families to thank and love them better. Keep and protect these heroes and their families, in the powerful name of Jesus. Amen.

A Prayer for Military Families:

Father, may the families of our military personnel—their spouses, children, and parents—cast all their cares and burdens upon You. Instead of being worried or filled with anxiety, may they pray about everything that concerns them and everything that concerns their soldiers’ life and deployment. As You promised, then cause Your peace, which surpasses all understanding, to guard their hearts and minds in Christ Jesus. Grant all our military troops this same peace, and let them feel the love we have for them even though we are far apart. Amen.
