Happy Memorial Day! PRAY FOR THE TROOPS

As Memorial Day approaches, we are reminded of our faithful heroes and our fallen soldiers. Let us remember to always be praying for our leaders, troops and the people who make a sacrifice with their lives. Let us pray for the veterans, those in service and their families as well.

Let us be grateful and reflect on the people who are sacrificing their daily lives with their families to be in service.

“I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone- for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.” -1 Timothy 2:1

And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert, and always keep on praying for all the saints.” -Ephesians 6:18 

Do not worry about anything; instead PRAY about everything. Tell God your needs and don’t forget to thank him for his answers. If you do this you will experience God’s peace, which is far more wonderful than the human mind can understand. His peace will keep your thoughts and your hearts quiet and at rest as you trust in Christ Jesus. –Philippians 4:6-7

Thank you servicemen and women who are faithful in fighting for our country. You are greatly appreciated and we honor you! If you would like to personally thank our Veterans you can go to the government volunteer website and find out how to go about doing this.

“For love of country they accepted death…”  ~James A. Garfield

“They fell, but o’er their glorious grave
 Floats free the banner of the cause they died to save.”
~Francis Marion Crawford

“And I’m proud to be an American,
where at least I know I’m free.
 And I won’t forget the men who died,
who gave that right to me.
”~Lee Greenwood

“A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself.”  ~Joseph Campbell

    I was close to tears just reading this.
    God, I pray a special protection and blessing over those in our nation’s defense. Thank You for their willingness to serve and protect us and lay down their lives for our freedom. I pray this also over all of the military cadet programs, that You would keep them in Your hand as well. Please bless and protect (spiritually, mentally, and physically ) Michael and Dallas, and continue to show them that You are with them always. I pray You would show them favor and keep their fires lit, that they would be a shining example of who You are, even in such a dark place. Thank You, Lord. In Your Son Jesus’ Name, Amen.

    Dear God,

    Please help Jared with his PTSD and please help him to struggle with the loss of his friend, James. Please help him when he gets stationed in Japan for 3 years. Please help Chloe to find a new husband. Please help little Evan to deal with having a split house at age 3.

    Amen :/
