A soldiers prayer ....

Lord, plant the seeds of hope in Afghanistan and in Iraq

and look upon our soldiers there and bring them safely back

to their friends and relations that pray to you each day

to look upon their children in your very special way

let them conduct their duty each woman and each man

and favour our battalions in these ruined and hellbent lands

keep their hearts faithful to the God they love and understand

and don’t allow their souls to become hardened, bent and damned

if their life it ends there on that foreign rugged soil

keep a special place for them in heaven for their unwavering toil

stay next them when in battle and guide them in their fight

and stamp out persecution with honour and with might

these soldiers, most them Christian are fighting hand in hand

with ‘other’ religious soldiers in these awful foreign lands

unite them through their actions and let them understand

that we are all one people that live in one huge land

we should never be divided by religion, politics or hate

as we all have a sure appointment at the same old pearly gates

where St. Peter stands as we queue there all equal and in line

as he examines our lives and legacies in the world we left behind

so I pray dear lord keep them, guide them as you will

through these war torn countries where for some their blood will spill

tell them we will meet again on earth or up on high

and assure them that our last goodbye never meant goodbye

A soldiers prayer ....
