    Father, in the coming days I will need You, but my SR will need You more.

    Let him/her perform his/her tasks with a sense of duty, not of anger or vengeance.

    Let his/her reflexes be quick and his/her hands steady.
    Let his/her head be clear and his/her eyes sharp.
    Let his/her mind and body be strong and his/her spirit stronger.

    Christ, please stand by my SR and watch his/her back when he/she cannot.

    Father, I love this SR of mine! Take from ME,
    what he/she needs and give me what he/she does not.

    I will pace the nights, if it means he/she gets sleep.
    I will deal with fatigue, if it means he/she will have energy.
    I will carry his/her fear, if it means it gives him/her courage.
    I will take his/her pain, if it means he/she is healthy and whole.
    I will take his/her anger, if it means he/she is at peace.

    Take from me my love and pride and let him/her feel it! Let him/her know that I am with him/her every step of the way.

    Please take from me what You can, I give it willingly and with love. It is all that I have besides my prayers.

    Above all, please help my SR achieve his/her goal of becoming a United States Guardian. This I ask on bended knee, that which I cannot do without You.

    Amen.


    I want to finally set it free, So show me how to see what Your mercy sees, Help me now to give what You gave to me...Forgiveness, Forgiveness

    Capt., Thak you for that beautiful prayer! While my son is now an SN, I feel that it still applies! Being in a new place , experiencing new things, and working towards getting qualified- it still fits. I will use it for him daily. Thank you. I am sure other parents/ loved ones will feel the same way. God bless!
