Heavenly father as we come to
you in prayer
At this time of the year with Christmas so near
It will be a little harder for us this year
Because last year you were still here
But we feel your spirit so near.
Our hearts are filled with love and not hate
So this year Christmas may have to wait

we ask that you protect our Armed Forces from
all harm. We know that You have the power

presence be felt with our soldiers and their
families during this special time of year.
We know that Your Armor is more
powerful than any sword or evil and
that You can still perform miracles. We

Father we thank you for Your blessings that
You have given to us and the greatest gift

we ask that You touch our hearts this time of

remember to give generously to support
these soldiers of Yours. Father forgive us
of our sinful and evil ways and where we
have failed You. We ask all these things
Your Son's precious name, Amen.
