We come to you, Lord, this day, on purpose. We come with fears and requests for protection for our loved ones in harm’s way. We ask for protection for our families. We ask that you hold us all in integrity, keep us close to one another across the distance. Keep us close to you, because you are what holds us together.
Protect our service members, Lord. Surround them with your impenetrable might. Give them direction, guide each step, and bring them home safe and sound. Keep them in your love and purpose. Bring them the information they need to do their jobs, and give them a heart for the people they serve.
Help us at home. Bring peace to our hearts and the hearts of our children. We give our imaginings to you, Lord, Author and Finisher of our faith. We choose to trust you for all we need, and thank you that you are with us and will never leave us or forsake us.
In Jesus’ mighty name we pray.
