Happy Memorial Day (5/30)
“A Battle Prayer”
by Scott A. Tacket, Sr.
should fate find you on the battlefield,
may your cause be a just one. May your courage not falter.
May you show mercy to your enemies.
May your efforts bring the blessings of peace.
May you be triumphant and earn victory. May your sacrifice be always appreciated.
May you endure the conflict unharmed.
Should you be harmed,
may your wounds heal.
Should you perish in the struggle,
may God embrace you and find a place for you in His Kingdom.
