I Prayed have prayed
Father, we pray for every soldier in our military, especially those are currently overseas in the desert. Guard them and keep them, God, and make them more aware of your presence.

As our military is succumbing to woke ideologies and our cadets are being taught divisive lies, we must keep our soldiers in constant prayer.

Nehemiah 9:19-21

“Because of Your great compassion You did not abandon them in the desert. By day the pillar of cloud did not cease to guide them on their path, nor the pillar of fire by night to shine on the way they were to take. You gave Your good Spirit to instruct them. You did not withhold Your manna from their mouths, and you gave them water for their thirst. You sustained them…in the desert.”

Father, we come boldly before Your throne of grace today, as family of armed forces members, to bring our hearts and minds to peace, and to intercede for those deployed into desert regions. Firstly, we declare our trust and hope in You alone as the One who watches over our service members and neither slumbers nor sleeps. You will guard their going out and their coming in, their laying down and rising, now and forevermore. You are the shade at their right hand – the sun will not harm them by day nor will anything that comes out in the moonlight injure them at night. (Ps.124) We also acknowledge the sins of our government, our Commander in Chief, and those who are in authority over the military. They have sinned against You in embracing an LGBTQ+ agenda, in condoning abortion, and using taxpayer money to fund sex change surgery for soldiers. They have emasculated our fighting force. They have behaved wickedly, persecuting chaplains and others who follow You in all their ways. Father, forgive them – they know not what they do. We forgive them and we say – they owe us no debt. Heal our land and heal the armed forces. Have mercy on our soldiers and others in the armed forces. We cancel any assignments against them for evil, and close any door opened by the aforementioned sins.

We ask that our soldiers and their commanders would not lean on their own understanding or be wise in their own eyes, but instead trust in You and You will make their paths straight. (Prov.3) Let them not fear because You are with them; let them not be dismayed for You ARE their god. You have promised to strengthen and help each one and uphold them with Your righteous right hand. (Is.41) Let each one say, “The LORD is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.” Thank you that these soldiers can lie down and sleep in PEACE – though they may be alone and without cover in the desert – because You make them DWELL in safety. (Ps.4)

You have commanded this military unit to be strong and courageous, to be neither afraid nor dismayed because You are with them. Help each one NOT to allow Your word to depart their mouths, so that they can be careful to do all you ask, and have great success. (Josh.1:9) You give strength to the weary and increase the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in You LORD will renew their strength. Our soldiers will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. (Is.41)

Lord, when these soldiers feel alone and perhaps forgotten, let them remember these words from, Deuteronomy 32:10 ,“He found him in a desert land, and in the howling waste of a wilderness. He encircled him, He cared for him. He guarded him as the pupil of His eye.” Then each one will acknowledge no God but the Living God, Yeshua, because You cared for them in the wilderness, in the land of burning heat. (Hos.13:4b-5) There each one will see how the Lord their God carried them, as a father carries his son, all the way they went until they reach the end of their mission, and are safely home. (Deut.1:31). Even as You are the cloud that covers each one by day ,and the fire that guards them by night, we know that You will send Your Spirit with manna – Your Word – and the water of the Spirit, living water – when they thirst. You say that those who hunger and thirst for righteousness will be filled. As they are in the desert, cause them to hunger and thirst for you alone. (Matt.5) You have led them there to speak tenderly to them and show them Your salvation. They will no longer run after other gods or call them Master but will call You Husband. (Hosea 2)

Father, we thank you that You have heard us and will answer our petitions and prayers for our soldiers. To Him who is able to keep you from stumbling and to present you before His glorious presence without fault and with great joy – to the only God our Savior be glory, majesty, power and authority, through Jesus Christ our Lord, before all ages, now and for evermore! Amen. (Jude 24-25)

Today the Lord would have compassion on all those who have been so terribly deceived by those following Satan.
May the men and women in fire zones today be surrounded by your Host. Those who die might know at the last the true God as One comes alongside. May those who have sexual issues not be overwhelmed by an enemy who does not sanctify life.
May our Lord be Lifted up today…

I come before the throne today and ask that All leaders, commanders of all branches of our armed forces be removed if they have become politicians and they are to be replaced by warriors who delight in walking with our Creator. May the Warriors rise up again to take back the a t which the enemy has stolen. By the shed blood of Jesus and His Name we ask..

Dear Lord be the military’s front and rear guard. May Your protection be upon each soldier as they learn to fight the good fight of faith in these times. Open their hearts to hear Your mighty voice. Protect them from the enemy of their minds and hearts. Comfort them and bring them safely home to their loved ones. May each one come to know You Lord as Savior of their lives and remember You protected them in their work. In Jesus name, Amen

The Holy One commands us this day to lift up All the warriors working for the Kingdom so that they are surrounded by Him in whatever w a y is necessary….

Isn’t God’s timing wonderful.
I dreamed all night about our military and how they are portrayed more and more as LGBTG. THAT GODLY PEOPLE ARE BEING FIRED FOR NOT GETTING VACCINATED.
Holy Spirit is with the pilots who refuse vaccination. There is now evidence that heart failure is happening to pilots. There are more and more side effects being revealed from COVID vaccinations.
May those who are weakening our military with training that is eventually harmful in any combat situation be removed and replaced with Godly warriors.. Protect those in the navy and submarine crews from ignorant commanders. All officers who owe their position to politics.
My dream also was vivid in that the Israeli military is fed up with doing the work for the United States and protecting us.

This prayer resonated. Holy Spirit is saying it is for ALL His Children engaged in the battle being fought this day . should be embraced and surrounded by this Word. Power in the Blood of Jesus.

I was reared (in the military culture) on jet bases. For much of my life I was called an “Air Force brat” but I didn’t care, my childhood was wonderful. As a mother to a currently serving USAF member, I honor his service. As well, I honor the service of each person in active and reserve duty in all branches of our military.

While I rode my bike this morning, 2 low flying military jets thundered overhead. I prayed for these pilots and all other active duty personnel. Despite the garbage that is being forced upon them, I pray they serve as these jets fly (in regard to wokeness) above the fray. I pray they serve (in regard to truth) in duty and mission, thundering on course with tactical precision and stealth.

Dear Heavenly Father, I am in agreement with Lori’s prayer and ask that You would exceed hers and all petitions for our military. May they know the Peace of Christ in these difficult times and be the tip of His spear in ending ideologies and lies.

Awesome prayer
Thanks for posting it as I just prayed it. Shalom

In Jesus name, Lord reach far and wide across this globe and guide, lead, instruct and protect our military men and women. Help them individually to stand against forces that would harm them and their families. Place your mighty hand upon them, draw them close to you. Cause them to understand and realize wise choices and steady their lives under your direct care. Its in Jesus name we pray! Amen!
