We thank you for our soldiers. Protect them in combat, and fortify their spirits for the journey that follows battle. Lord, shine Your all-healing light on the hearts, souls and bodies of the men and women who have been wounded physically, emotionally, psychologically and spiritually at war. Bless them that they may experience Your unconditional love and acceptance shining through the friends, family and communities to which they return. Bless us all that we may generously receive our veterans and support them as they have so magnanimously given of themselves for us.
