Prayer of the Army Spouse 

Dear God,
I am proud to be wed to one who defends freedom and peace.
My challenges are many and I pray for your love and guidance to meet them.
Special to me are the symbols representing my religion, country, community and home.

I pray for the wisdom and grace to be true to their meaning.
You are the symbol of my religious beliefs and the source of my strength.
Because my life is full of change I cherish the solid and constant spiritual foundation that you provide.
Help me Lord, to be an example of your teachings.

My national flag represents freedom.
Let me never forget, or take for granted, the hope it shows to the world.
Bless those who have made sacrifices for freedom.
As I enter the gateway to a military community, guide me to reach out to others and keep it a wholesome place.
May my charity be given without thought of personal rewards.

My wedding ring represents eternity and never ending love.
Let me celebrate all of the joys of our togetherness and find comfort in them during times of separation.
I pray also we are spared the ultimate sacrifice of duty to country.

My house is a symbol of our family and its unity.
It is the place where we share memories of the past and build dreams of the future.
Make willing my heart and hands to do even the smallest tasks that will make our house a better home.

Thank you God for daily being with us as we live in the Army.
Please grant us your continued blessings, increased strength and infinite guidance, as we live to your honor and glory.
AMEN
