Heavenly Father, bless and protect all Military Chaplains and fill them with the joy and courage of their vocation as personal ministers of Christ in preaching your word and nourishing our troops with the Sacraments.
Heavenly Father, please also bless and protect all of our courageous men and women serving in the military around the world. Please pray for all veterans and let then know how much we appreciate their service to their country. Please keep them safe and under your protection and guidance. Please also pray for all of those brave men and women who paid the ultimate sacrifice for us, so that so that we can live in freedom today.
Prayers also to all parents, spouses, and children back at home who pray and worry about their loved ones, and in a special way, all those who have lost loved ones who have served. May God bring you much peace and comfort.
Please join me in praying the St. Michael prayer to give all of these men and women extra protection against the forces of evil in the world and to keep them strong, faithful to God, and safe, through Christ our Lord. Amen.
Saint Michael the Archangel,
defend us in battle.
Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray;
and do Thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host,
by the Divine Power of God,
cast into hell Satan and all the evil spirits
who roam throughout the world seeking the ruin of souls.
