humbly written out as “heard” on November 10, 2015 by Elizabeth Burgard Fulgaro © 2015
Lord God, You know. You see. You were with them on the battlefield. You were with them in the camps. You were with them on base and at home with their families and You are with them still. Lord, we have no power; we have only our prayers.
We come to You because we know who You are. All powerful, wonderful Lord. Though we work for peace. Here it will never fully be for this is the world where the adversary runs rampant seeking to ruin hearts. This is not heaven. Here there will always be conflict and war. Here there will always be times we must stand up for ourselves and fight back.
Lord, we remain land of the free because of the brave. Help them because they help us. Help them. We know You see and know and yet You ask us to partner with You in prayer to birth on earth that which You have already purposed in heaven.
Lord, we call forth Your perfect provision and protection for every service member and every veteran and every member of their families at every place along their life journey. Take care of them as they take care of us!
Be with the ones still serving and give them Your strategy. Be with the ones just beginning and give them Your courage. Be with the ones who have finished their service and give them their place in society where they can continue to contribute and contribute well for their hearts remain to serve even though their time in the military is done.
Come to our enemies in dreams and visions and help them gain an understanding that You are there. Shine Your Light in their darkness in magnificent miraculous ways so that they might turn and find You. As they do, Lord remove the need they feel to take ground from other countries. Usher Your peace into their hearts to re-build their own families and homes—and to build these on and in love instead of on a foundation of attack, anger and hate.
Lord, we will do whatever You ask of us to serve those who serve and have served. You have answers. These are the answers we seek. Speak to us; we are listening. Answer our prayers according to Your promises. Lord God, as long as they are, we will stay and pray and bow down and worship until the fullness of Your answer is seen for we have placed all hope and trust in You. In Jesus’ name, Amen
