A Soldier's Prayer
A Soldier's Prayer
I feel your presence close to me
as I kneel here in the sand.
While I am here, I will not fear
as I know You hold my hand.
Walk with me, Lord, and lead the way
through this unfamiliar land.
Please keep me safe from any harm
while for my country, I take this stand.
Renew my strength, oh Lord, I pray
according to Your Word,
and I'll mount up with wings as eagles --
Lord, I sure do love that bird!
She flies so freely over that land,
the land that I call home.
She's still "My Country 'Tis of Thee"
no matter where I roam.
Watch over my family here below
as You look down from on High.
Wrap them in Your loving arms
and dry the tears they cry.
I pray for my brothers here close by,
and for my sisters, too --
And for all Americans everywhere
as we defend the red, white and blue.
And for our President, I ask this day
as he leads our nation strong,
protect him and direct his steps --
help him to right this wrong.
And for our country -- her friends, her foes;
Lord, please rain down Your love.
Guide our hearts back towards You,
and keep us focused on above.
In Jesus' name, Amen.
