Prayer For Soldier Going To War

Father, we praise and thank You for the great example of men and women of faith, who down through the ages have become such beautiful examples of those who in Your grace, were able to stand fast in the evil times, in which they lived. And we also want to lift up all those today, who like them are seeking to live godly in Christ Jesus and who like them, are facing times of increasing difficulty.

Thank You for the example of these faithful folk who remained steadfast in their faith and patiently endured many difficulties, despite the overwhelming trials they were called to face. Help us like them, to stand firm in the wicked times in which we live and may all those who seek to live godly in Christ Jesus remain steadfast in the faith and persevere as faithful soldiers of Christ, as together we run the race that is set before us in Your power and strength. In Jesus' name,


A Soldier's Prayer Of Commitment
Lord Jesus, I thank You for my life and for the career that I have chosen as a soldier. Thank You that You are always there to lead and guide in the choices and decisions I have had to make, and Lord, I do thank You for guiding me safely through the many obstacles in life that have brought me to this point in my life.

I pray that I will face every assignment that is presented to me with grace and courage, with my eyes looking to You as my strength and stay, my fortress and my ever present help in time of trouble.

Give me wisdom to carry out the tasks to the best of my ability and skill and show me Lord, how best to approach those tasks and assignments that are beyond my current area of knowledge and experience. Keep me I pray humble reliant on You, knowing that You have the answer to every problem. You know the end from the beginning and nothing happens in secret that You do not know about. Lord, I commit not only my career but also my life into Your hands and pray that in all things You would lead and guide, for Your praise and glory. In Jesus name,


God of Power, You are my Fortress and my Savior. God, You are my rock, in whom I find protection. During this basic training, You have been my shield and the power that saves me, and my place of safety. Lord, You are my Refuge, the One who saves me from violence. I know that as I am being challenged and trained up in the way of a soldier, I can call upon You for You shall save me, Amen.

Holy Father, You are gracious and righteous; You are awesome and full of compassion. Thank You for protecting the unwary; thank You for saving me at my low points. This training has been intense emotionally, spiritually and physically but You see me and are compassionate. Your love has kept me and continues to surround me so that I will not be broken. I pray that Your peace continues to keep me, Amen.

Precious Father, Your word says that a soldier who is enlisted in war does not entangle himself/herself in the affairs of everyday life, so that he/she may please the one who enlisted them. Lord, You know the sacrifices required for me to do well on my basic training and although I aim to please those who have enlisted me, I pray that my ultimate aim is to please You. While they teach me to be honorable, let my honor and loyalty reside with You, Amen.

Father in Heaven,

I pray for our troops who are in intense encounters right now. Some of them are under fire and they need You now more than ever to come out safely. Father, guide every step and decision they make in these crucial situations. Give them the knowledge of when to move and when to stay still. Give them the power to overcome the enemy and remain safe. Lord, fight alongside our troops. Father, I pray that You would incapacitate the enemy to the point that they can't even stand. Make them drop. Please, stop the plans of the enemy that wants to hurt our troops. We put our trust in You in these extreme encounters. We love you! Amen

O Prince of peace, we humbly ask your protection
for all our men and women in military service.
Give them unflinching courage to defend
with honor, dignity and devotion,
the rights of all who are imperiled
by injustice and evil.
Be their rock, their shield, and their stronghold
and let them draw their strength from you.
For you are God, for ever and ever.

All-powerful and ever-living God,
when Abraham left his native land
and departed from his people
you kept him safe through all his journeys.
Protect these soldiers.
Be their constant companion and their strength in battle,
their refuge in every adversity.
Guide them, O Lord, that they may return home in safety.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
