Soldier of God

In the presence of battle
Surrounded by smoke
Everything goes silent
Your heart pounds
As you realize
For a minute that you are alone 
On that battlefield
Risking it all
For the fate of your country
You are a soldier 
A soldier of God
And then you pray
Kneeling on the ground
Hands clasped
That minute stretches on
Forever praying
Then you march
Onward and fight
The fight of faith
Guided by that holy light
It seems all will see
At one point
Finally, that prayer seems to make the difference
As you win that battle

    yes we are soldiers in the army of God, and we are faced with unbelievable obstacles daily, miniutely, hourly, but we are victorious, we are winners, though the world may not see, coz Jesus died, and was ressurrected to give us that victory. Great write
