Catholic Prayer: Prayer for Troops
This prayer is one of many provided by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) under the heading of "Prayers in a Time of War".
All-powerful and ever-living God, when Abraham left his native land and departed from his people you kept him safe through all his journeys. Protect these soldiers.
Be their constant companion and their strength in battle, their refuge in every adversity. Guide them, O Lord, that they may return home in safety. We ask this through Christ our Lord.
