Prayer For A Fallen Soldier

Blessed Lord, Thank You, Jesus, for breaking the power of death. Thank You that the death of my loved one, who has fallen in war, is not the end. Jesus, You died and rose from the dead. You ascended into Heaven as evidence of what happens to us when we die. I pray that You send my love to my fallen hero, who is at Your side. Amen.

All-Powerful Father, my heart breaks for my loved one who has been lost in battle. You say there will be a new heaven and a new earth. You will dwell among us, and death will be no more. My loved one trusted in You, Father, so I know my fallen hero is there with You now. I pray that You would wipe every tear from my beloved warrior's eyes and fill them with Your joy until we are reunited. I celebrate the defeat of our greatest enemy, death! Amen.

Loving Jesus, my Refuge, my heart is grieving the loss of my loved one. My only comfort is that they knew You, Jesus, and therefore I know they are with You. You promise that You save completely those who come to You through Christ and that You are always able to intercede for them. I pray for my fallen hero and ask that You will surround him/her in Your love. Amen.

God of Heaven's Armies, as I think about the soldiers who have fallen today, my heart breaks for their families. I wish to honor them today with my prayer. You say that whether we live or die, it is for You. I thank You for their sacrifice and pray their deaths will not be in vain. I pray that these fallen heroes will feel my pride in their bravery and commitment to protect and defend. Amen.

Heavenly Father, I come before You today on behalf of my fallen hero. You say that You know when the smallest sparrow dies, and You know the moment my loved one died. Thank You, Lord, that You have prepared a place of eternal rest for my loved one because they trusted in You. I pray that You bring the soothing and comforting rest that they need, now that my warrior is in his/her eternal home with You. Amen.

Loving God, thank You for the promises in Your Word for Your children. I'm praying for my fallen soldier that I know is with You. Wipe away my tears, Loving God. Remind my heart that there are no more tears for my loved one because You have promised to dry each one. The tears my fallen warrior has cried have not been in vain because Your Word tells us that You have counted each one. I pray that as You wipe their tearsand my tearsaway my memories of them will be joyous and beautiful. Amen.

All Powerful God,
We honor today those men and women
Our sons and daughters,
Husbands and wives,
Fathers, brothers, sisters, mothers
Who have laid down their life for their country.
Whether weary or emboldened, quiet or defiant,
Vulnerable or ready when You called them home,
Their sacrifice is too humbling for words
except these uttered in prayer.
Loving Lord, bless them forever in Your eternal peace
Cherish their spirit, honor their commitment,
send them our love,
and will never forget the service that they gave.

Dear Lord Jesus and Mary, Mother of God,
Hold all these brave souls in the palm of your hand, comfort them and their families.
Send angels of protection, love, and comfort to all the servicemen and women still at war,
bring them home safely and comfort their families.
