in God's Armor
we bring before You -
we may not know each name -
men and women called to serve.
they seek no reward or fame.
grant them wisdom to know Your Word,
to hide in Your Secret Place.
them in the shelter of Your arms;
them seek Your Holy face.
the world may come against them,
the arrow that flies by day
trampled under feet shod with peace
they walk in Your steadfast way.
they see destruction at noonday,
give them courage to stand
the shield of faith You give
protect our beautiful land.
may come in the nighttime -
may fall at their side,
Lord we pray You'll protect them -
in Your grace they'll abide.
them wield the sword of Your Spirit
fight for the freedom You give
on the shores of our enemies,
in the land where we live.
know You have heard our prayers,
our soldiers take the helmet of salvation.
them in Your righteousness
they stand proudly defending our nation.

that dwelleth in the Secret Place
the Most High shall abide under
shadow of the Almighty.
will say of the Lord, He is my
and my fortress; my God;
Him I will trust...
He shall give His angels charge
thee to keep thee in all thy ways.
Pray for our Troops
our Allied Countries~
