A Prayer for our Military

With apologies to the original children’s prayer, I felt we need a modern one for our military:

Now I lay me down under the protection of our great military to sleep,|
I pray the Lord watch over all our souls to keep,
The Lord saw fit to make our fighting men and women strong and true,
To protect the Nation he created flying the banner of red, white, and blue,
The Lord’s guiding hand saw our proud Nation be born,
Today we recognize our great heroes through celebration while we yet mourn,
For the protection of Life, Liberty, & Freedom did their duty call,
Their valor now provides honor in the their great resting hall,
So should any of our great protectors die before I awake,
I pray the Lord their hallowed souls to take.
