Father God, You know every veteran by name. You know their deeds, their hard work, and their perseverance. You know their needs, both material and spiritual. Please draw each one closer to You and grant them all the peace that passes understanding (Philippians 4:7), let the peace of Christ to rule in their hearts (Colossians 3:15), and ‘joy in Your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand’ forevermore (Psalm 16:11).”
In addition to Your limitless joy, comfort and peace, reward each of them a hundredfold for their sacrifice and service. Bless them far beyond all their expectations and human comprehension. Reward them richly for all they have selflessly given.
Father God, to those who need healing remind that You know how deep a warrior’s wounds go. You know the loss that many of our veterans experience in body, mind and soul. You know the memories that haunt them and the scars that many of them continue to carry still today. Therefore we ask that You bring healing to those veterans who are still hurting physically, mentally, spiritually, emotionally, financially, and socially.
Father God, for those veterans who continue to struggle with civilian reintegration remind that You know they can sometimes feel isolated and alone even in the midst of their friends and families because there are few around who fully understand their personal experience. So I ask You to place in their path those who do understand (or strive to), that they may feel less alone. Remind them often that while their fellow human beings may never fully comprehend, You see, You know, You care, and You can identify with them in everything they go through.
Almighty God, as we move from prayer to praise on this Armistice Day in 2020, let no veteran feel forgotten or neglected. Let every man and woman, young or old, feel the deep and enduring gratitude of our nation. O’God, Thank You for blessing each our veterans for their selfless service in the continual struggle to preserve our freedoms, our safety, and our country’s heritage. Thank You for hearing this petition and then moving to action to fill every veteran with all the fullness of God, through the resurrection power of Jesus Christ, our Lord, Amen and Amen!!
