Praying for the Safety of Soldiers

 Freedom isn’t free; it is usually fought for and costs the lives of several men who fight for it. They are the true soldiers who will never be forgotten in history.

prayer for the troops

Therefore as Christians and children of God, we should always remember to pray for strength and protection for our soldiers and every other military troop that is fighting for the defense of our country and the safety of our lives and properties. This prayer is for those whose fathers, brothers, uncles, husbands, wives, and mothers are out there in the fierce battleground fighting for the sake of our land.  They are far away from home and their loved ones; at times, they are very frightened and cold at battles and miss their families. But we believe in the word of God that says that He shall give His angels charge over them and keep them so that they do not fall. (Psalm 91:11).

        Let’s apply the word of God which is our guiding light and sword and begin to intercede for every dutiful soldier out there on the mission to protect our country.

  1. Do Not Be Afraid:

“Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the LORD thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.” (Joshua 1:9)

Dear Lord,

  We are very grateful for the lives of our soldiers; we thank you for the salvation of their souls and the gift of life even as they are in faraway lands fighting battles to defend the weak and free the captives. Lord, we are relying on your assurance that they should not be afraid nor dismayed for you are always with them; we, therefore, intercede for our troops that you uphold and continually be with them in Jesus’ name. Father, you’re the all-powerful God; we pray that you deliver our troops from harm and make your presence go along with them everywhere they set their foot in the mighty name of Jesus. Amen.

  1. The Strength Of God:

“The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in him, and I am helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth; and with my song will I praise him.” (Psalm 28:7).

Heavenly Father,

      You are the God of all soldiers; the bravest and greatest warrior of our lives. Therefore, Lord, we seek that you shield our troops from every attack of the enemies. We seek that you give them divine strength to overcome every situation they encounter on the deadly battlegrounds. Make them trust in you Lord that they may be greatly helped. For we are more than conquerors in Christ; we, therefore, pray for our soldiers that they shall be happy and abundantly blessed in the mighty name of Jesus. Amen.

  1. The Ultimate Fighter:

“For the Lord, your God is he that goeth with you, to fight for you against your enemies, to save you.” (Deuteronomy 20:4).

Father Lord,

   For you are the ultimate fighter of battles; we seek that you continually go before our troops into every one of their battles in Jesus’ name. We pray that you help them fight greatly against the aggressors and that you save, guide, and protect them for their families and country. Keep them safe under the shadows of your protection and bless their soul in Jesus’ name. We also seek that the spirit to make the right decisions be granted unto them. Amen.

  1. Keep Their Loved Ones:

The Lord will protect him and keep him alive,

And he shall be called blessed upon the earth;

And do not give him over to the desire of his enemies.” (Psalm 41:2)

Heavenly Lord, we humbly pray for our soldiers that as they go into the battlegrounds leaving their loved ones and families behind; keep them alive lord and safe from the bullets of the enemies so that they may come back unharmed and healthy to the glory of your mighty name. We seek that you put peace in the heart of the loved ones our troops left back at home and provide for them. Lord, grant our soldiers mercy and let their enemies be unable to triumph over them in the mighty name of Jesus. Amen.

  1. The Best Refuge:

“I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” Surely he will save you from the fowler’s snare and from the deadly pestilence.” (Psalm 91:2)

Dear God,

     We thank you for we believe by faith that you have answered our prayers for our soldiers and every one of our troops that is part of the defense mission of our country. From age to age you have never failed us; we therefore, use this as a point of contact and ask that you forever keep our troops safe in Jesus’ name. Bless the soul of those soldiers who have made sacrifices for our freedom. Keep them from deadly injuries and sickness in the mighty name of Jesus. We also seek solace for every grieving family who has lost their loved ones who in the cause of defending and rescuing their country have sacrificed their lives greatly; we pray for eternal peace for their souls and that you prosper and guide the ones they left behind in Jesus name. We thank you father for you are the God that always comes through when we call; may your Holy name be praised. We finally pray that you are the refuge of our soldiers who have been deployed; make them feel your love and presence now and forevermore. Amen.


May the Lord hear your prayers and grant your supplications. It is great as Children of God to remember to pray for our soldiers and other military troops who work round the clock for the protection of our country. Therefore, it is advised that we say these prayers daily to continually intercede for them; entrusting them in the hands of the Almighty God.
