Prayer request: Pray for our friends in Christ who are parents of soldiers. Pray for their children who are at war on our behalf.
I have three friends whose sons are: on deployment to a war zone, waiting for the next deployment, and starting Basic Training.
These young men, two of them fathers, have been on our prayer list for some time.
Though we’ve been told a timeline for an end to US involvement in the war in the Middle East, it seems like a war without end. It must especially seem so when people you love are in harm’s way.
I’m privileged to be a counselor for a military benefit program which serves our soldiers and their families, particularly (though not exclusively) related to deployment and reintegration issues. It breaks my heart to see spouses sobbing with the pain and stress of separation.
PRAY FOR THEM.
