Prayers For Our Military : Week April 8-14, 2013

god-bless-the-defenders

O Judge of the nations, we remember before you with grateful
 hearts the men and women of our armed forces at home 
and abroad who in the day of 
decision ventured much for the liberties we now enjoy. We commend them to your gracious care and
 keeping and we pray that day by day you will defend them with your heavenly 
grace; strengthen them in their trials and temptations; give them courage to face the perils which beset them; and grant
 them a sense of your abiding presence wherever they may be. Grant 
that we may not rest until all the people of this land share the
 benefits of true freedom and gladly accept its disciplines.

Receive Lord all who have died in the hope of the resurrection, and those whose faith is known to you alone, that, with all the 
saints, they may have rest in that place where there is no pain or grief, but life eternal. We pray for those who joined you in your heavenly kingdom this week, esp. 

Jarrett Yoder, 27, US Army National Guard, Pennsylvania

Matthew Ruffner, 34, US Army National Guard, Pennsylvania

Undisclosed Soldiers from last week :

Deflin M. Santos, Jr., 24, US Army, California

Wilbel A. Robles-Santa, 25, US Army, Puerto Rico

Christopher Ward, 24, US Army, Tennessee

*If I have left anyone off this list, please let me know so that we can honor them.*
