I wish for you encompassing protection, a little extra of Gods attention to follow you
wherever you roam until you return safely home.
I wish for you peace and love, a special tie from God above to keep you feeling safe
and warm even in the middle of a storm.
I wish for you true understanding, a secret insight to what he's planning, in this war
and in your life so you wont be broken by the strife. So you will know what is meant
to be will be and that you will make it back home safely.
No one will be able to bring you harm.
You will return home to your family's arms.
This prayer I send out for you, a soldier who is strong and true, a man of great
nobility, may you have the strength to BE ALL YOU CAN BE!
