Happy 231st Birthday!

Today is the birthday of the U.S. Army. Enjoy the DoD's tribute here. As we celebrate the founding of such a great institution which has protected and defended our great nation, let's pray for the brave men and women of the Army who continue to make this country great by their service.

Almighty God, bless our troops who serve our nation. Protect them from harm, grant them an outpouring of your Spirit, and bring them safely home. As you watched over Israel and granted them victory over their enemies, guard our men and women and never let them be far from your Heart. Grant all these things through our Lord Jesus Christ, Who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen.
