The Deployment Prayer

Deployment Prayer

Dear Lord:
Give me the strength to say goodbye.
Hold back the tear in my eye.
Cure my insomnia so that I may sleep alone.
Give me a reason to awake when I've none.

Dear Lord:
Please help me pace myself.
Allow me to turn to you for help,
And please let me be strong for him,
Even if I've reached the brim.

Dear Lord:
Please make time go fast.
I don't know how long I can last.
This is the hardest time of my life, But this is my job: the soldier's wife.

Dear Lord:
Let them all stay strong.
Give them the will to go on, And Lord, Please bring back all our men.
In the name of our country. Amen.
