Dear Lord, Thank you for always being there for us, Father, and for listening to our prayers and always providing the right answer even if we don't always understand it right away. We know that you are all knowledge and all good and that by honoring Thee and following Thee we will always be on the right track to our personal salvation when our time on earth is done.
Today we ask for Thy divine intervention on behalf of our brothers and sisters who have suffered so gallantly for their country and their fellow citizens while serving in harm's way . Many of them are in constant pain and suffering. Some are facing a near certain death in the near future. Be with them, comfort them and infect them with your Holy Spirit and love.
As we learn of the travesties committed against them by a government that was sworn to care for them, we ask Thy help in ending their pain. Send the Holy Spirit to those in positions of trust who have violated that trust, and open their eyes to their wrongdoing and shine Thy light of truth and honor on them so that they can correct the errors of their ways. Help them to see that they must ask Thee for forgiveness and take Thy punishment, knowing that Thy mercy will be given them if they truly confess their sins.
We also know that there are many fine medical personnel working for the VA who, despite the difficulty of their work environment, strive with all their hearts to provide the service that these heroes deserve. Be with them in their efforts and help their example to be a guiding light for others who have not been so caring and sharing. And also be with our government leaders and officials who must seek the truth and insure that the travesties found are never again allowed to be repeated.
Lord, also be with all of us. We are worried and concerned about the direction our country is headed and help us to always be strong and do what we can to return this land that we love to a loving and direct relationship with Thee, for only with Thy love and guidance can we successfully navigate a world which is today so engulfed in sin. Help us to keep our paths on the straight and narrow and live as a shining example of what Thou wouldst have us be. We ask all these things in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, who offers us redemption and salvation through His compassion and grace and His sacrifice for us on the Cross. Amen.
