I'm very excited about the potential for this year's Military Prayer Week. Last year, 57 believers took part by reading the morning and evening prayers for the United States military. I appreciate the fact that you did that, and I look forward to even more taking part this year. Each year gets better!
What is Military Prayer Week?
Military Prayer Week is one week a year where we set aside everything else and simply pray for our military personnel. I hope and assume that many of you pray for the military at various times throughout the year, but for the week of Veteran's Day in November, we set aside some other things and really focus our hearts for God on behalf of those in uniform. One of the key points is to pray for very specific things in the life of a military person, such as loneliness, sin, anger, and outreach, among others. By doing that, we will focus our energies on items that directly influence the military mindset.
What all does it entail?
Why not click on this link and see the first one? I think you'll get a good look at what we pray for and how we go about it.
How does it work?
Each morning from the 7th of November until the 11th, I will post a simple prayer, much like the one above, on the website. It is only a guide, so you are free to pray as you like. However, it is an opportunity to pray with a like-mindedness with other believers around the country who care deeply for the men and women who serve. Then, in the evening, I post a second prayer to close out the day. Each of those will be placed also on the Facebook page for Navy Christian, which you can join by clicking the link to the left.
