Sunday Respite – Blues Walkin’ By My Side


It has been a stunning and discouraging week for America. It is almost impossible to believe what has transpired.  There are thousands of men, women and children frightened both here and abroad for loved ones. Our thoughts and prayers are with them.

I am in a bluesy mood for my musical selection. First, a prayer for our men and women in uniform.

Lord, 

     Thank you for the men and women who have stepped up to serve and protect our country. May they know the blessing of serving well. Thank you for your promise to never leave or forsake your people. We pray for the protection of our Armed Forces serving our country at home or abroad, whether in drills or in deployment. Keep from harm all those in the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines and Coast Guard. Help them to be strong and courageous and do not let them be discouraged. Help them to feel Your presence. Help them to stay morally strong and free from untoward influence. Keep them healthy and free from sickness as well as injury. Guide them, be their eyes and their ears as they move about and carry out their order and missions.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.

    Memories of April, 1975 Got prayed up on my hike this morning. Was gifted with an answer: there are no political answers to spiritual questions.
