Veterans Day: A Soldier's Prayer

Lord, I ask for courage;
Courage to face and
Conquer my own fears,
Courage to take me where
Others will not go...

I ask for strength,
Strength of body to protect others,
Strength of spirit to lead others.
I ask for dedication,
Dedication to do my job, and do it well.
Dedication to my country,
To keep it safe.

Give me, Lord, concern;
For those who trust me,
And compassion, for those who need me.
And, please Lord, through it all
Be by my side.
