The Servicemember’s Prayer

Just over three year ago I wrote The First Responder’s Prayer. It has since been published in three books, and posted on many police and fire station walls. I continue to hear how it brings comfort to those who protect us daily. Ever since I have wanted to do a similar prayer for the brave men and women of our military. I am finally convinced God has given me the right words for that prayer.


The Servicemember’s Prayer

By Rev. Robert  A. Crutchfield

Heavenly Father,

Give me your strength, when fear creeps inside me.

Let your strength sustain me, when my endurance fades,

Give me your peace in the face of the horrors I must witness.

Grant your wisdom to those given command over me.

Flow your comfort and companionship over my loved ones while I must be away.

Serve beside me always, as I defend those whom I don’t even know.

This prayer is dedicated to Almighty God , and humbly offered to those serving us in our military.  I pray that it offers them some small degree of comfort, and strength.
