A Prayer for Your Soldier

To post on your fridge…or your office, or nightstand, or wherever (mine is on the fridge; it’s there, in part, to remind me Whose he really is).  It’s included here as a pdf for print, or in html in case you can’t open it.

Pray for Your Soldier: Psalms 121

(Insert Name)

                               will lift up his eyes to the hills —

where does his help come from?

His help comes from the Lord,

the Maker of heaven and earth.

He will not let                                    foot slip —

He who watches over                                         will not slumber;

indeed, He who watches over                                       will neither slumber or sleep.

The Lord watches over him —

the Lord is his shade at his right hand;

the sun will not harm him by day,

nor the moon by night.

The Lord will keep                                          from all harm —

he will watch over his life;

the Lord will watch over his comings and his goings

both now and forevermore.

Lacey - Amen!

Mom - Awesome… It’s going on the bathroom mirror, so it doesn’t have to compete with E.’s artwork on the fridge for my attention 😉
love u,

Darlene - Not to take from our men and women in uniform, but a prayer for their families too. I think they need so much prayer for sharing their loved ones with us.We can’t forget the sacrifice they are suffering too. Thanks for a wonderful daily reminder.

S - Thank you for posting that. I would say that you don’t know how much that means/will mean to me, but somehow I think you do. Our last deployment was a childless one, and quite honestly, not a bad time. We’re facing one now with a baby boy, and it’s taking on a whole new meaning. I spent the better part of yesterday reading your archives, and (I’m sure as many people do) feel that I know you/ I’m also a stress-sewer, and have only done 3 projects in the 18 months he’s been home. I’m actually kind of excited to get back into it, especially after seeing all of your creations!
Hugs,
