For the Troops

For the Troops

Lord, I ask You to gently hold
The families of our troops
Chaos often encircles them
And they need some time to re-group

Stresses untold are carried
Burdens of the heart not shared
Lord, give them peace of mind
And let them know You care

Help us be sensitive too
Of needs that we may find
Lord, there are so many
So many needs of various kinds

Our soldiers sacrifice so much
To fight for freedomís land
May we never take it for granted
May we always reach out our hand

We may never know the depth
Of what our soldiers go through
But may we always share the love
That so freely comes from You

Our prayers for our soldiers
And the families they leave behind
Are so often a precious gift
That helps to ease their minds

So hold them, Lord of Lords
And protect them one and all
Until they all come home again
After answering Freedomís call

This is from my upcoming book, "Secure the Fort (And Remain Under God)." Because of the poetry included in this book, it has been declined by agents and publishers. I will not eliminate the poetry included in this book! Therefore, I may have no choice than to self publish this touching book that several FaithWriters members have graciously submitted to. How can we poets break this never ending cycle?

Lucy, the Lord will certainly reward you for all you do for Him. And if publishers won't accept your work, be well assured that GOD HAS. And He has blessed you more than you may see in this life, by your kind deed in helping the Iraqi woman. God bless you "real good!" Helen

Lucy - Thank you for your tender heart and concern for our troops and their families. God is looking over them - keep praying. In Christ's Love, Julia

This poem came after two incidents today...I helped treat a child with a broken ankle at our office..mom didn't speak English well. She asked me to write out everything on paper for her to contact the Red Cross and have them try to locate her husband in Iraq-his second tour. Then a Coast Guard member asked me to pray for his family today. These things keep coming to my attention! I knew I needed to write something for them...

Your concern for our troops is to be commended.
