Pray For Our Troops' Safe Return Home

Pray for Our Troops!

As I reflect on this photograph, I see once again that not all the brave
leave the 'home of the brave' to enter battle; some are required now to be
the brave of the home.

It is said a picture is worth a thousand words but it leaves me speechless
and tears in my eyes.

Would You Send This Please.. we have a long list of good friends whose husbands are deploying to Iraq next month. One of the wives sent me this. We feel compelled to send it on. Your prayers are deeply appreciated. These guys deserve our love, our hugs and most powerfully, our prayers.

Prayer Request:

I understand that life in Iraq is very difficult to bear right now. Our
troops need our prayers for strength, endurance and safety.

Send this on after a short prayer.

'Lord, hold our troops in your loving hands. Protect them as they protect
us. Bless them and their families for the selfless acts they perform for us
in our time of need... Amen.'

When you receive this, please stop for a moment and say a prayer for our
troops around the world. Of all the gifts you could give a US
Soldier, Sailor, Airman, or Marine deployed in harm's way, prayer is the
very best!!!

You are NOT what you think you but what you think, you are!

"If you believe what you like in the Gospel, and if you don't believe what
you don't like in the Gospel, then IT'S NOT THE GOSPEL THAT YOU BELIEVE, BUT
---St Augustine

Forgiven people forgive people!
