Prayer from a Warrior's Child
Bless this day and the parents I love,
one is serving in the military, far from home,
guarding my safety and the safety of our country,
keep them safe and strong, as they do their duty,
may they know how proud I am of their service,
I love and miss our warrior, who is far away today,
Bless us all, with a happy homecoming.
A Military Family's Prayer
Bless us as we wait, as we move, as we endure,
our service and spirit supports our loved one far away.
War has called them to serve, and us to wait,
in our waiting, we serve too, with strong hearts.
We are the families of those who defend America,
our shared sacrifices are for our country too,
we smile, to keep the spirit of our troops strong,
at home we handle things and hold hope's flame high.
Our families do not complain, we serve,
dedicated to America's freedom and liberty,
we are the keepers of Valley Forge's legacy,
we are the families of America's military.
Bless us, as we bless this country with our lives,
protect our troops and protect our loved ones from harm,
Bless them and bring them home safe.

Let me be willing to see the big picture in all things,
