Covered by God’s Protection: Psalm 91 Bandanas

When Jill Boyce had a vivid dream about American soldiers fighting and being killed and injured right before the War in Iraq started, she began to pray earnestly for the troops. The next day she envisioned a camouflage bandana with Psalm 91 printed on it and remembered stories from World War I and World War II in which soldiers’ lives were saved as a result of praying this psalm, such that it became known as “The Soldiers’ Psalm.” Jill had the Psalm 91 bandanas made and began distributing them to soldiers deploying from the nearest base, Ft. Hood, Texas. Hundreds have been sent and are worn by our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan—a great reminder to pray for the Lord’s protection and presence with soldiers everywhere.

“The hardest battle that ever was fought
Shall I tell you where or when?
On the maps of the world you will find it not
’Twas fought by the mothers of men.”
