2 Chronicles 32:8 With him is only the arm of flesh, but with us is the LORD our God to help us and to fight our battles.” And the people gained confidence from what Hezekiah the king of Judah said.

Dearest United States Military,

I think about you all the time and pray for you. I also think about all our veterans who have already served. My dad who is 85 years old is a Navy veteran and He has been telling me His war stories and I’ve learned that it’s not easy going to war but that you do it for our country and for our freedom and the freedom of others.

Being a soldier takes training skill and facing many challenging circumstances.  Boot camp alone is the first big challenge.  I’ve seen many of my son’s friends go off to boot camp and they me tell how hard it is….but necessary. Many of you have husbands, wives and children and must leave them and go off to war. That alone is a tremendous sacrifice. Many of you get injured and many die in battle. When I hear about these sacrifices my heart hurts for the families.

To all our precious soldiers and their families, I care about you so much and I want you to know that although you don’t know me I am praying for you and I know there are many other Christians out there praying for your safety and strength as well. We prayer intercessors and prayer warriors got your backs in prayer. You will probably never meet us, but it doesn’t matter….we don’t need to because God knows where you are and who you are.

You all are so brave to do what you do!! I truly admire your strength, duty and honor that you bring to our country. And you women soldiers…..I call you Diva Soldiers….why?….Because you are my she-ro’s…..You’re right out there doing so great! You see ….I would not have ever made it past boot camp….if fact…I would have never got on the bus LOL! I’m a big chicken….so I take off my apron to you….wave it around and say….thank you!

I want to say thank you to you all and I encourage you to hold on to your faith in the Lord our God. He will be there for you….He promised that He would in His word. Please pray very often and read your bible if you are not already doing that. It should also be part of your equipment for the battle.

I have been in many battles myself….one is with my health and the fight of my life… cancer. This is my favorite scripture verse that I have used in many of my battles: 1 Peter 5:7 Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you. (please read your bible for more encouragement)

One Last thing I want to do is pray for you:

Dearest Heavenly Father,

I come before you today because you are my Father and you have all power in your hands. I ask you to help each and every soldier from every branch of our armed forces and ask you to give them your strength and peace. Guide them, give them wisdom and courage. Lord keep them safe and give them victory over their difficult circumstances. Protect and keep their families secure, safe and strong while they are away from them. For those who have lost loved ones give them comfort. For those who are lonely and are missing their families give them peace, and for those who have been injured, give them healing and strength. I thank you for what you are going to do and for all the victories. I ask this in the name of your Son Jesus Christ……Amen.

Deuteronomy 20:1 When you go to war against your enemies and see horses and chariots and an army greater than yours, do not be afraid of them, because the LORD your God, who brought you up out of Egypt, will be with you.
