Please Remember

This came in my e-mail from a friend this morning. Since she and I have many friends in common, and she was already passing it along to them, I'd thought I'd ask your prayers, too

Hi,
I don't usually forward emails but this one I will. My grandson is due to come home in two more weeks from his third tour in Iraq and you have prayed for him on the prayer list for a long time. Thank you.

Prayer Request:
I understand that life in Iraq is very difficult to bear right now. Our troops need our prayers for strength, endurance and safety. Send this on after a short prayer; please don't break it: "Lord, hold our troops in your loving hands. Protect them as they protect us. Bless them and their families for the selfless acts they perform for us in our time of need. Amen." When you receive this, please stop for a moment and say a prayer for our troops around the world. There's nothing attached; just send this to all in your address book. Do not let it stop with you, please -- of all the gifts you could give a US Soldier, Sailor, Airman, or Marine deployed in harm's way, prayer is the very best!!!

I pray for their protection and safekeeping. May they know God's love and feel God's calming Spirit. I pray for peace.

We have a loved one expected home for "vacation" in October. He is stationed in Afghanistan. I pray for all our men and women in the armed forces. It's a scary world out there.

And. Yes. I pray for peace.

I too pray for all people serving their country in the military, their families and loved ones ... and for sanity for their leaders.
