Regardless of how you feel about the war in Iraq, the war on terror, the President who sent our troops abroad, or the President who holds office now, we all can agree that our soldiers need prayer. In the stateside political fray over the war on terror, it is easy to forget that the people who deserve the most attention are just that – people. They are fathers and mothers, brothers and sisters, uncles and aunts – and above all – they are each someone’s child.
To Our Soldiers Serving Abroad:
We here at Elev8 simply extend our thanks. We recognize that peace and freedom are not free. We acknowledge the sacrifice that you make not only by leaving your families behind, but by offering your very lives in service everyday. Saying “thank you” is truly insufficient, but Thank You, Thank You, Thank You. You are loved and appreciated for your loyal service to this country.
In an era where many people lie for a living, fail to live up to their obligations, and refuse to keep their keep their word, you are to be honored, if for no other reason than for upholding your commitment to your country.
For the danger that you face on behalf of our nation everyday – Thank You.
For your willingness to put your lives before ours here at home – Thank You.
For the families and loved ones you left behind – Thank You.
For the determination that you have shown and continue to show in serving these United States of America – Thank You.
For your obedience – Thank You.
For honoring your commitment to your nation and her people – Thank You.
For standing as examples of courage to us all – Thank You.
Please accept our blessing over you:
May God keep you, bless you, and return you home safely to your families and to America. May he cause his face to shine upon you, be gracious to you, and reward you beyond what you can imagine for your military service. May he protect and sustain your families in your absence and after you come home. We praise him for your sacrifice. We ask him to honor you for it. May you prosper as your soul prospers and above all, give you peace.
In Jesus Name – Amen.
We salute you this July 4th!
