Catholic Prayer: Prayer Asking Divine Protection for Those In Service

Description:

A good prayer for Memorial Day or any day.

Prayer:

O God, I beseech You, watch over those exposed to the horror of war, and the spiritual dangers of a soldier's or sailor's life.

Give them such a strong faith that no human respect may ever lead them to deny it, nor fear ever to practice it. By Your grace, O God, fortify them against the contagion of bad example, that being preserved from vice, and serving You faithfully, they may be ready to meet you face to face when they are so called: through Christ our Lord. Amen

Sacred Heart! Inspire them with sorrow for sin, and grant them pardon.

Mother of God! Be with them on the battlefield during life and at the hour of death, and grant that they may live and die in the grace of thy Son. Amen.

St. Joseph! Pray for them.

May their Guardian Angel protect them. Amen.
