“Why are you in despair, O my soul?
And why have you become disturbed within me?
Hope in God, for I shall again praise Him
For the help of His presence.” Psalms 42:5
Father God, we lift up the soldiers among us and ask you to release the spirit of life into their hearts and minds. This past year, more soldiers committed suicide than died in combat in Afghanistan, and a substantial portion of the suicides were soldiers who never saw combat. Show us what is affecting our soldiers and how to set them free from suicide!
