For what shall we pray, O Lord?
For strength,
for victory,
for a swift peace?
Certainly!
But we pray also
to be worthy
of the faith
of our loved ones.
We seek help
that our souls shall not be corroded
by the grim work that we must do.
Above all, give us light to see
that our sacrifices are made for Thee.
Amen.
