Prayer for Men on Active Service.
God of the spirits of all flesh!
Thou art our refuge and strength,
our very present help in war as in peace.
Our lives are in thy hands,
and thou art the master of our destinies.
O endow us with courage and steadfastness
loyally to do our duty as true Israelites to King and Country,
and to take our full share in this War for Freedom and Righteousness.
O keep us far from what thou hatest;
and bring us near to what thou lovest.
Shield us from sorrow and hurt,
and deal mercifully with us for thy Name’s sake, O God,
who alone art our Guardian and Deliverer forever.
Amen.
