Military Personnel/Safety & Spiritual Protection
Submitted by: Church Family & Friends
Dear Heavenly Father, as with any soldier's family, it is very hard on those awaiting the return home of their loved one(s) as well as loved one (s) being away from their family, friends and home while serving in our military. We lift up all of our military personnel and their families/friends for comfort, protection and God's grace and mercy. In Christ Jesus holy name these things we pray. Amen military personnel01-02-2012
