Last week when I was organizing my office, I came across A Prayer for our Military written by Debby Giusti. I contacted Debby and asked if I could share it.
She graciously said, "Yes, I'd love for you to use the prayer."
Debby writes romantic suspense stories with a military theme. I asked her why she focused on the military, and she said, "My dad was career Army, as was my husband. My son just retired from the military. He had four deployments into war zones so not only have I prayed for my son throughout his career, but also for all those in uniform. The guys and gals sacrifice so much for our country. I wanted to encourage prayer for their protection and safe return home and have been distributing the Prayer for Our Military to do just that. God bless all of them...and God bless the families who support them.
Because of being an Army brat, Army wife and Army mom, my editor asked if I'd like to write a military series. Of course, I said yes! The eighth book in my Military Investigations series, PLAIN DANGER, is in bookstores this month and is also available as an ebook on Amazon. The next story, PLAIN TRUTH, will be out in the fall. Each story stands alone so the books can be read in any order."
I've always enjoyed reading Debby's stories and can't wait to get my copy of Plain Truth.
Here's the prayer:
Lord, protect our military deployed around the world. Be their armor of righteousness as they stand firm against the enemy. Keep them physically, mentally and spiritually strong. Comfort them in times of hardship, and bring them safely home to the families who eagerly await their return. Amen.
Thanks to Debby for sharing and thanks to her family and all the men and women who have served and continue to serve our country.
