A PRAYER FOR THE SOLDIERS OF THE KING.

O Almighty Lord God, the Father and protector of all that trust in Thee, we commend to Thy

Fatherly Goodness the men who through perils of war are serving our Nation, beseeching Thee

to take into Thine own hand both them and the cause wherein their King and Country send them.

Grant them the victory in Thine own good time. Be thou their strength when they are set in the

midst of so many and great dangers. Lead all, through life or death, to put their trust in Thee, who

art the only Giver of Victory, and canst save by many or by few, through Jesus Christ our Lord.

AMEN.
