Weekly Watch Focus: Pray for our Veterans

Friday, April 7, 2016—Let us extend prayers for our veterans and thank them for their military service. So many sacrificed their time, strength, health, and even their lives to keep us safe and free.

Thousands of these veterans have suffered from neglect, poor health care services, and even no health care from the Veteran’s Administration. Millions of US veterans and their family members find themselves uninsurable and face great difficulties obtaining the most basic medical care.

Many of our veterans stretching from World War II to the Vietnam era and the Gulf wars carry scars on their hearts as well as their bodies. Pray for these wounded warriors with broken hearts or broken bodies. May Jesus, who bears on His body the wounds from the greatest battle, embrace them in His healing arms. May these warriors find a place of honor and healing in the Lord’s Church.

We extend healing prayers towards these veterans and their families. We bless them for their honored service to keep us free.

Ps. 73:26, “My flesh and my heart fail; But God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.”
