Most Loving Father, source of all good things, we come before Your Holy presence to ask for Your generous blessings and guidance for all men and women in uniform.
Grant, O Lord, that they may be kept in Your loving care and protection as they try to fulfill their duties & responsibilities in ensuring peace, order, security and harmony in our beloved country. Save them from every danger and harm of body and spirit. Be their Shield in difficult moments and preserve them from the perils of death.
Lord, give also our men and women in uniform the courage and strength to say “NO” to those who try to corrupt & exploit our country & people by gifts, favors & all sort of bribes. Let none of this corrupt practices ruin the dignity and noble resolves of our soldiers. Let them be faithful servants of our country & people. In a special way, we pray also, O Lord, for all the soldiers who have offered their lives for our country & people. We entrust to Your care and healing all the wounded & sick soldiers.
Finally, we also pray that our soldiers be given strength and courage to bear the pains of being separated from their loved ones. Grant them, O Lord, & their loved ones Your peace whenever they are in trouble, Your consolation & joy when they are in sorrow & in grief.
We entrust them all to the maternal protection of the Blessed Virgin Mary & to the patron of soldiers, St. Ignatius of Loyola.
Dear Lord, let this our prayer for all soldiers be granted in Jesus’ mighty name.
