There is good news for you today if you are a military veteran who may be feeling abandoned, forgotten, and discarded. If you are challenged by flashbacks, memories, and other symptoms of PTSD, there is good news:
God loves veterans, and He is concerned about you.
There are over 500 military references in the Bible. The Word of God is full of examples of mighty men (i.e., Gideon, Caleb, and David) and women of valor (i.e., Deborah and Jael) the physical and mental impact of war on the warrior
(2 Samuel 21:17), the effect of military service on the family (I Samuel 17), and the treatment and regard of soldiers upon their return home (I Samuel 18).
Prayer for the Wounded Warrior
Father, in the name of Jesus, we pray for veterans--those who have served our nation with zeal, pride, courage, and honor. We pray for those who are tormented by memories--images, sounds, smells. We pray for those who feel abandoned, discarded, rejected, and ostracized. Who pray for those who are experiencing nightmares, insomnia, anxiety, bouts of rage, hypervigilance, and other symptoms of PTSD. May they experience the peace of your presence. May they find comfort in knowing that you have not forgotten them. Thank you for being Jehovah Rophe, the Lord God who heals. We pray a prayer of healing, deliverance, and complete wholeness. May it be well with our veterans. Minister to each and every individual need. In Jesus' name, Amen.
We will continue to pray for our veterans. If you have a specific prayer request, please submit it here.
