Prayer for military


Join us in praying for our military troops and their families.


"Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil.”  Psalm 23:4


"Though the way is dark in mortal sense, divine Life and Love illumine it, destroy the unrest of mortal thought, the fear of death, and the supposed reality of error. Christian Science,  contradicting sense, maketh the valley to bud and blossom as the rose.”  Science & Health with Key to the Scriptures, by Mary Baker Eddy


Prayers answered

Military families tell of protection, guidance and healing in challenging situations and in everyday life . . .

There have been many times when God directed and protected me as a test pilot.  Once I was preparing to taxi an aircraft for a first production test flight.  Just before calling for clearance to taxi it came to me very strongly to shut down the engines, . . .

The steady light that comforts us in every path our footsteps take.
Our Father’s house has many rooms, and each with peace and love imbued;
No child can ever stray beyond the compass of infinitude.
Home is the Father’s sweet 'Well done,' God’s daily, hourly gift of grace.
We go to meet our brother’s need, and find our home in every place.”

Military suicides: a call to prayer

A Christian Science perspective.
By Melanie H. Ball

"Recent news reports of record suicide rates in the armed services have been a call to prayer for me. My heart goes out to each one, and I pray they experience the Bible's promise 'The Lord commanded the blessing, even life for evermore' (Ps. 133:3)

Finding homes for veterans 

"One infinite God, good, unifies men and nations; constitutes the brotherhood of man; ends wars; fulfils the Scripture, "Love they neighbor as thyself;" annihilates pagan and Christian idolatry,--whatever is wrong in social, civil, criminal, political, and religious codes; equalizes the sexes; annuls the curse on man, and leaves nothing that can sin, suffer, be punished or destroyed."  Mary Baker Eddy, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures
