Faithful Father, thank you that you are the source of all true joy in life. For those who serve our country in the military, we pray that they would be filled with your strength flowing through them. We thank you for their sacrificial service on our behalf. We pray that they would carry out their work with integrity and honor. We praise you that our names are written in your book of life. We thank you that your grace has been sufficient throughout our life and will faithfully carry us home. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord, Amen.
