Anyone who is having troubles should pray. ... When a believing person prays, great things happen. -James 5:13,16 NCV

Remembering those Who Serve

Thought that I would repost a Memorial Day prayer from this site..

Dear Heavenly Father,

As we remember those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom, we think of how they have followed in the footsteps of your son, our Savior, Jesus Christ. Please hold our service men and women in your strong arms. Cover them with your sheltering grace and presence as they stand in the gap for our protection.

We also remember the families of our troops, and ask for your unique blessings to fill their homes and your peace, provision and strength to fill their lives.

May the members of our armed forces be filled with courage to face each day and may they trust in the Lord's mighty power to accomplish each task. Let our military brothers and sisters feel our love and support.

In the name of Jesus.


Please visit The Prayer List and pray with us.


  1. Amen. And thank you, Jesus for standing in the gap for me.

  2. Amen, Bob. We are so fortunate, and it is largely because of those who serve in the armed services.

  3. Bob, love this prayer and the picture is priceless. God bless all those men and women who have sacrificed so much, and God Bless America!
