Thursday some will gather around the dinner table with family and friends to share good food, warm laughter, and the happy memories of Thanksgivings past. For many families whose loved ones serve in the Armed Forces, this year’s Thanksgiving celebration will not be complete.

A familiar voice will not be heard and a chair at the table will remain empty because they have someone far from home serving our country.
Thursday, members of the Armed Forces will gather in mess halls or tents across the globe as friends and comrades to enjoy the tradition of this special day. Pray for those on the front lines, for safety and protection.

So, as those of us who are blessed to be with our families celebrate and give thanks, let us remember in our prayers the homes that have an empty chair at the table and also offer a special prayer of thanksgiving and ask God’s blessings for the brave men and women of our Armed Forces, whose service and sacrifice will, we further pray, make the world a better and safer place. A very special prayer dear God, for those homes that have an empty chair that will forever remain vacant and for those servicemen and women who have come back to us, may their sacrifice not have been in vain.

Prayers for Law Enforcement And Firefighters

We Pray and ask the Lord…for the protection of our police and firefighters in our state. Pray for peace, protection and strength in their homes and marriages. (Psalms 91:1-16)

We Pray and ask the Lord…for angelic protection as they are the first responders in any crisis situation.

We Pray and ask the Lord…for their emotional well being: The mental, physical and emotional aspects are always on high alert. There is a combination of stress and anxiety always at work which can impact the mind in many ways. Divorce can be a result and forms of escapism which are counter-productive to the mind, body, spirit and soul.

We Pray and ask the Lord…for our police and firefighters to make choices in spontaneous situations that continually arise that are filled with wisdom that will bring forth the greatest good. Wisdom is the right use and exercise of knowledge; quickness of intellect; readiness of apprehension; and dexterity in execution.

We Pray and ask the Lord… they would have compassion for the people they serve. Our police and firefighters are dealing with lives and souls that will face God some day. May they have a heart like Jesus Christ and feel what an individual may be going through at the time, and respond accordingly.

We Pray and ask the Lord…that law enforcement and firefighter personnel would come to know the Lord Jesus Christ as savior. This is the greatest need of all as salvation is the pathway to resolve all individual problems that may arise.

We Pray and ask the Lord…they would exhibit integrity, honesty and dedication. A virtuous individual is to be highly regarded and respected. Temptations can present situations for any person to fail at some time. May they have spiritual fortitude and strength to be honest, dedicated and individuals of integrity.

Prayer for Military Personnel

We Pray and ask the Lord…for grace for the families of our military, and ask the Lord to release his blessings, peace and grace while the troops are serving abroad. Pray for provisions to be met, for health safety and faithfulness in the homes.

We Pray and ask the Lord…that our security will remain strong. We ask the Lord to uncover any plan to release information that would jeopardize our national security, or the security of our troops, and law enforcement personnel.

We Pray and ask the Lord…to give success to our military over in Iraq. Pray that they will be able to finish what was started military-wise and that the mission would not be aborted by pulling out prematurely.

We Pray and ask the Lord…for wisdom and protection in the engagement of troops in Iraq, Afghanistan, North Korea, and other hot spots in the world where our men and women are deployed.

We Pray and ask the Lord…to expose and thwart every attempt of the Al Qaida and any terrorist organization or plot to bomb our troops in Iraq or to release any type of bomb here on US soil or on any waterway. We ask angelic hosts to protect schools, churches, shopping malls, coffee shops, stadiums and any place where people meet.

We Pray and ask the Lord…for the Generals and leaders of our military, that they will be filled with godly wisdom and strategies for waging war whenever necessary. (1 Chronicles 12:32)

We Pray and ask the Lord…to reveal and place the right information into their hands of our Homeland Security, for the thwarting of any Muslim terrorist agenda or separatist group anywhere in America. We ask the Lord to dispatch angels around the nuclear power plants and all around these United States.

We Pray and ask the Lord…for a great revival to break out among our troops. We ask the Lord to pour out His Holy Spirit with powerful miracles signs and wonders in our military. They will truly become Joel’s army! (Joel 2:28-32)
