A Prayer for Children of Soldiers

Father of the fatherless, Lord of all, we come to You today asking that you protect the children and teenagers of our deployed troops, those who are sacrificing so much to protect our nation. Please undergird their families and the parents who are on the home front caring for them. Provide for all the needs of these children and parents and provide the support the kids need in their schools and communities. Fill the gaps in their little lives because of the absence of a parent or parents in Your amazing ways. Would you mobilize people to be more aware of and better reach out to military families. Increase the prayer support around them and for them! And bring their dads and moms home safely, Lord.
