It is tough to see soldiers fulfilling their calling, knowing their safety can be at risk. Likewise, it must be very hard for their loved ones, who won't see them for long as they perform their duties.
Despite dangers and risks, soldiers are selfless enough to serve their country. To fight for those who need their strength and courage, for justice and rights of their nation, and to protect their people and their country's interests.
Over the centuries of wars and battles, Christians have grown up knowing that they must pray for God's children who protect their land.
Prayer might sound like a simple gesture. But a prayer full of faith calling the name of the Lord shall be heard.
It is God's will to protect his children. Trust that he hears your prayers.
At times of war, soldiers and pilots need your prayer for strength, endurance, and safety. And as a Christian, you must pray for them.
As they go to war to protect you and your nation and to keep everyone safe, you are at spiritual warfare to pray for their safety.
Above all gifts you can give a soldier or even a marine, a prayer with pure intent is the greatest. Trust that he will hear your prayers when you call for the Lord's name.
Many testimonies claim how powerful God's protection is once you seek refuge. One of these stories is about the 91st Brigade, which will be discussed later in this article.
“Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” (Isaiah 41:10)
A soldier's foundation in every unimaginable hardship can only be found through faith in God. He is the one who strengthens; he is the one who saves and protects.
More than anything else, he is the one to give you comfort, peace, and love.
The prayers presented here can be used in different situations that may suit your circumstances. As you pray at night, take a moment of silence to sit in solitude and connect to the Divine Creator.
Heavenly Father, you are a powerful and ever-living God
In every place and at every moment, come before your children who call upon your name in faith
These soldiers protect their land, and they can't keep on doing so without your divine protection
May your presence project in their dedication to serving their nation
Keep them safe through all their journey
Be their constant companion and their refuge in any adversity
Be their strength in every battle that they would straight up win, bearing the glory of your name
Oh Lord, guide them that they may return home in safety
Be with them and make them feel your presence so that they will know they are not alone in every battle
Hold and guide them as they seek you to serve you
You have called them to serve and rescue, to protect and to make peace
I commend your grace and defend them day by day
Please give them the courage to face perils and strength in every moment
Lead them with your guiding light so that the darkness, fears, and troubles may dissipate in front of your presence
Lord, I humbly pray that your endless grace will surround them and allow them to lean on your wisdom as they perform their duty
I pray all of this in your Holy Spirit. Amen

Psalm 91 Soldiers Prayer
Psalm 91 is well known to be a soldier's prayer called the Soldiers Psalm. Legend has it that the men of the 91st Infantry Brigade of the U.S. Expeditionary Army in World War I recited Psalm 91 daily. In addition, their Christian commander printed Psalm 91, giving it to each of his men to repeat daily.
The 91st Brigade was sent to three of the war's bloodiest battles. Yet, with their courage and devotion to the Lord, the soldiers returned without any single combat-related death compared to other units, with almost 90% casualties.
Whether the story may be true or not, the truth of Psalm 91 can't be denied. As whoever takes refuge in God, the Most High shall find rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
That is there true power of the Lord! So many testimonies have claimed the truth that in confidence in the Lord's shield and protection, will be kept away from death, war, disease, and terror of the night.
The ten thousand may fall beside you, but you will remain untouched if you seek refuge under the wings of God's shelter and protection. God saves, and nothing goes beyond his power to help.
In a bold declaration of the Lord's refuge, you will fear nothing, for he will protect you!
Those who live in the shelter of the Most High will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
This I declare about the Lord: He alone is my refuge, my place of safety, he is my God, and I trust him. For he will rescue you from every trap and protect you from deadly disease.
He will cover you with his feathers. He will shelter you with his wings. His faithful promises are your armor and protection.
Do not be afraid of the terrors of the night, nor the arrow that flies in the day. Do not dread the disease that stalks in darkness, nor the disaster that strikes at midday.
Though a thousand fall at your side, though ten thousand are dying around you, these evils will not touch you. Just open your eyes and see how the wicked are punished.
If you make the Lord your refuge, if you make the Most High your shelter, no evil will conquer you; no plague will come near your home.
For he will order his angels to protect you wherever you go.
They will hold you up with their hands so you won’t even hurt your foot on a stone.
You will trample upon lions and cobras; you will crush fierce lions and serpents under your feet!
The Lord says, “I will rescue those who love me. I will protect those who trust in my name.
When they call on me, I will answer; I will be with them in trouble. I will rescue and honor them.
I will reward them with a long life and give them my salvation.”
