Almighty, merciful, and loving Father, you are the one who hears all our prayers and grants our petitions. We, the troopers of the 2nd Armored Cavalry Regiment, ask you to remember, as we do, the tremendous sacrifice made by those who went before us. They have given their lives so that we might live and breathe freely. We ask you to receive them into your hands. Father, give us the strength and wisdom to learn from their example, to uphold freedom and life at home and around the world. Keep us vigilant as we guard the frontiers of freedom. Give our leaders the wisdom and the strength to lead well. Grant all of us courage and confidence.
Be, for all of us troopers, a wise counsel in keeping peace and a strong shield for us against our enemies. Oh heavenly Father, give us the determination that the peace and freedom won at such a high price be lasting.
Father, hold all of the troopers of the 2nd Armored Cavalry Regiment in the palm of your almighty hand and protect us in the shadow of your wings. Amen.
