A Soldier’s Prayer Before A Combat Mission

All mighty God, we call upon you on this, the eve of darkness.  Count us in Your graces as we step into the dark and dreaded places that all others fear to tread.  Shine Your light into the shadows, so we may see the wicked and know their faces.  Guard our souls from those that seek to destroy our souls, and let them fall by the sword. 

Allow us to return to our homes whole in both body and spirit.  Give us the strength of will to strike down the wicked, and bring peace to man and nation.  And should I fall, let it be such a fall that it shields others from death.  Let not our sacrifices of sweat and blood be for naught. 

For we are those few who, of free will, step into wilderness, through war, through pain, fire and death to guard that which we love more than our lives.  Remember our names in the Book of Life, and care for us greater than we can ever care for one another.

Amen.
