Heavenly Father, thank you that your perfect love drives out fear. When our brothers and sisters in the military feel daunted by the pressures of their work, increase their faith that they may depend on your strength for their success. May they know your all-conquering power in their life and work. Thank you that you feed your people from the tree of life and give us living water to drink so that we may be satisfied in you. Be exalted above the heavens, O God. Let Your glory be above all the earth. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord, Amen.
