How do I pray, Lord

for my son

who is

going

to the ancient city

of weeping history,

Baghdad.

Teach me God

to daily,

hourly,

pray

the very highest,

the very finest,

the very purest of

mother-prayers.

Imbue

my

words -

weight

my

wishes -

amplify

my hopes and thoughts and dreams

for his perfect safety.

This much is true already:

for his preparation,

I am praying.

For his leaders in the training fields,

I am praying.

For his chaplains in Godly nurture,

I am praying,.

For his comrades in esprit de corps,

I am praying.

I ask too,

that in these,
some of life's longest hours...

he remains who he was always created to be,

and even more than this,

that he will -

by the force of this task,

become

a man of towering strength,

golden character,

filled with wisdom.

For me,

I ask,

for courage as great as his,

belief as firm and true as my son's,

and for a heart of honest compassion such as he has for his fellow man.

I ask for us both,

through the year ahead,

October to October....

Your gift,

God,

of a

a peace

that surpasses

all earthly understanding...

a peace

not just for us,

but for us all.

Amen
