Troop Prayers?

I am receiving many of the touching emails urging prayers for our troops: It goes

"Lord, hold our troops in your loving hands. Protect them as they protect us. Bless them and their families for the selfless acts they perform for us in our time of need. Amen." When you receive this, please stop for a moment and say a prayer for our troops around the world. There's nothing attached; just send this to all in your address book. Do not let it stop with you, please - of all the gifts you could give a US Soldier, Sailor, Airman, or Marine deployed in harm's way, prayer is the very best!!!

Yet there can be no division of prayers, no troops more in need of prayers than another. Praying for any over that of others is saying that some are more worthy than others, and is an attempt to weigh the scales and doom others to harm. There is no soldier who does not eminate from and live in God's heart. There is no soldier or country more loved by God than another. God sees no country, God sees no policy; God sees and knows us all only with a love that understands our mistaken focus to be causing us traumas. Establishing our Allegiance with God's way of life stops us from participating in actions that would harm ourselves and others.

All troops have families, all troops believe they are performing selfless acts. ALL troops need prayer as do those who send them and train them to combat, that they may feel and know other ways and priorities of living.

The most selfless acts we can perform is to live with love for the betterment of others. Why not offer true prayer of love for ALL SOLDIERS that they ALL be protected by and to create peace.
