Military Prayer List

We would like to start a prayer list for our military men and women who are serving our country and risking their lives so that we may remain free. If you know of a service man or woman, please feel free to e-mail their name and branch of service. More importantly, please check this page frequently and pray for those listed.

Also, pray for the families of those who have lost their lives and for those servicemen and women and the families of those who are listed as missing in action and prisoners of war.
Operation Iraqi Freedom casualties

We pray for those who answered the call and selflessly chose to serve
And protect our country’s freedom and liberty preserve
Send Your angels to watch over them and keep them from harm’s way
Until they safely return to us, this dear God we pray.

Please God keep our men and women safe and, please send them home walking
proud and tall. Please make their job easier, as it is a very dangerouse
mission to free the world of injustuse.
Thank you God and thank all people involved in this to keep ME free.
Steven L Bowen

"Lord, hold our troops in your loving hands. Protect them as they protect us. Bless them and their families for the selfless acts they perform for us in our time of need. Amen."

From: The Bishundat family, our son and brother "Kris Romeo Bishundat" was
killed at the Pentagon on 9/11 and our family wants all the brave women and
men fighting for us and our lost love ones, that we are praying for them and
their families.

Yours truly, Romeo's family.

Lonely Soldier

He was standing in the sand with his gun slung across his shoulder
Thinking back on life at home, those days before he was a soldier
Just one among so many yet somehow he felt alone
As his thoughts crossed the water to those loved ones back at home
When life seemed so safe and tranquil with his sons and his wife
Before that September morning that changed our world and life
He stepped forth for peace and freedom as he answered his country’s call
Knowing with this selfless gesture he might be asked to give his all
He believed in God and country and would follow the command
And march boldly into battle across this forsaken desert sand
He had heard the marchers’ protests and the celebrities with their cause
It caused him pain and anguish and gave this soldier time to pause
Weren’t they too against this evil, why not march for it to cease
It wasn’t about war and fighting but our freedom and world peace
He would bravely go into conflict and put his life upon the line
Not just for his wife’s and children’s but for your life and for mine
He looks towards the future and prays for a world free from strife
To this goal he is willing to fight for freedom and give his life
We salute this lonely soldier and all the others in the fold
And we pray for their protection as again we hear "Let’s roll".

Psalm 91 NIV
1 He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
2 I will say of the LORD , "He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust."
3 Surely he will save you from the fowler's snare and from the deadly pestilence.
4 He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
5 You will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day,
6 nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the plague that destroys at midday.
7 A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you.
8 You will only observe with your eyes and see the punishment of the wicked.
9 If you make the Most High your dwelling-even the LORD , who is my refuge-
10 then no harm will befall you, no disaster will come near your tent.
11 For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways;
12 they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.
13 You will tread upon the lion and the cobra; you will trample the great lion and the serpent.
14 "Because he loves me," says the LORD , "I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.
15 He will call upon me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him.
16 With long life will I satisfy him and show him my salvation."
