“O Prince of Peace, we humbly ask for your protection for all our men and women in the military service. Give them unflinching courage to defend with honor, dignity, and devotion the rights of all who are imperiled by injustice and evil. Guard our Churches, our homes, our schools, our hospitals, our factories, our buildings, and all those within from harm and peril. Protect our land and it’s peoples from enemies within and without. Grant an early peace with victory founded upon justice. Instill in the hearts and minds of men and women everywhere a firm purpose to live forever in peace and good will toward all. Amen.”
