Happy Memorial Day


Soldier's Prayer
Hearts are heavy now, dear Lord For WAR is looming there.
Our prayers are calling out to you, Our thoughts too much to bear.
Be with our loved ones--THEY NEED YOU.
Guide them, lead them, see them through.
Bless our leader, for we know, He asks Your blessings, and needs them so.
Protect the innocent, shield their lives, As bombs and missiles streak the skies.
Open our hearts and fill us with grace, Guard our loved ones in that place.
This I say, in earnest prayer, THANK YOU LORD I know YOU'RE there.
So brief, but God knows our hearts and feels the pain for all of us.
Our military, our president, we who wait at home and those innocents whose lives are in harms way too.
I can barely watch the news, but am drawn to it all the same.
This prayer is on my lips and in my heart,almost every minute.
GOD BLESS AMERICA, and all of your children, wherever they are.
Thank a Soldier Today - Happy Memorial Day!
