A friend posted this Army wives prayer on Facebook today, so I thought I’d repost it here for others who may be going through the same thing. We as Army wives try to be selfless in understanding how important it is for our soldiers to do their duty and complete their military mission. Most importantly, we pray that God protects them and uses them as He sees fit.

The Army Wives Prayer

Dear Lord,
Give me the greatness of heart to see the difference between duty and his love for me.
Give me understanding that I may know, when duty calls him he must go.
Give me a task to do each day, to fill the time when he’s away.
And Lord, when he’s in a foreign land, keep him safe in Your loving hand.
And Lord, when duty is in the field, please protect him and be his shield.

Jamie has only been gone for a week, but it seems like it has been at least twice that long. He was put into the hospital this weekend with a bad virus and given three IVs because of dehydration, but he is thankfully better now. We got to Skype video chat for about 5 minutes one night, so it was really good to see his face. The connection wasn’t the greatest, but it worked. If only Skpye will work where he is going, it will make this deployment so much more bearable. I really hope the Internet connection will be strong/fast enough there.

    Believe me….Jamie needs to see you and hear from you just as you need to see/hear from him. I have added you both to my daily prayers….that the Lord’s protection would be upon you, that your weaknesses would be replaced by His strength, that you would be encouraged. I pray also that the time will pass quickly and that you will soon be safely reunited.

    Now stay busy, stay firm in the faith, stay encouraged.

    Best wishes always….Bill
