War on this country was not meant to be.
You're overseas fighting so we can stay free.
We say a prayer every night for you before we go to bed.
Our hearts are saddened for the families of the dead.
We hope you come home safely and out of harms way.
You are all heroes in our hearts every day.
To our soldiers we love you as you can see.
And we can't wait until you come home back to the land of the free.
Just know my family thinks of you each and everyday.
And that we love you all this is what we have to say.
We think of you each day and pray for you each night.
We believe in you so do what you think is right.
Just know that there are people who still care.
And that we are with you with every prayer.
I saw the young soldier
lying along side the road
His proud uniform was tattered
and covered with an ashen, grayish dust
I knelt down beside him and looked into his eyes
Lifeless orbs whose last vision was etched upon his face
reflecting the shock and the absolute horror of death
He never fully realized that he could be wounded,
and he couldn't believe that he was going to die
until that final lonely, tragic moment of truth
when he saw all of his dreams lost in a fog,
with no one there to hold him tightly
and tell him that it would be okay
Just him and the cold darkness,
with nothing at all left to see
Dear Lord, we earnestly pray,
For those in our armed forces today,
Whether they be in the air, on land or on sea.
Oh God, please bare Your mighty arm,
And keep our men and women from harm.
May they feel very close to Thee!
We pray for those in captivity now.
Oh Lord somehow,
Convince their captors to set them free.
May You give them the grace,
For the problems they will face!
Oh, dear Lord please let it be.
We pray for those who will die.
God reach down from the sky,
And draw their souls to Your breast.
Then, with Your loving hand,
Take them to a better land,
Where no wars can come,
And there's perfect peace and rest!
