I just wanted to post this beautiful image of Our Lord watching over men and women from all the different branches of our military. Looking at it reminds me that even when people we love are serving in harm's way halfway around the world, they are never alone; Our Lord is always with them.
If you have a loved one serving in the military (as we do), here is a prayer you might like:
Lord, hold our troops
in your loving hand.
Protect them as they protect us.
Bless them and their families
for the selfless acts they perform
for us in our time of need.
I ask this in the name of Jesus,
Our Lord and Savior.
