Today And Always, A Prayer For Veterans

God we thank you for commissioning men and women in the defense of freedom.
We honor those who honor and protect us, in many cases laying down their lives that we might live free to pursue our own destiny. 
Every soldier takes his or her oath knowing he or she may be called upon to pay the ultimate sacrifice. 
Lord, we cannot repay this gift they give us. 
For those who have suffered as a result of their sacrifice, we ask for supernatural healing, favor, peace, and in some cases, forgetfulness.
Lift from them the cares and burdens of violence. 
When they return home, give them opportunities to fulfill their own potentials and dreams.
Open doors for them, even when some doors are closed. 

God, Bless our veterans.
