A Visual Prayer To Those In Our Armed Forces...


This card was created for my nephew's friend who just left for the war. This was created in hopes of encouraging him and as a reminder of God's love for him.

This card was also created as a reminder to me, to us, to pray for them. They need our prayers, interceding for their safety, souls, and well-being. They need God to minister to their hearts when they are lonely, afraid, sad, hurting. We cannot be there, but God is everywhere. May He take our love-and-care words and grow fruit for His kingdom, strength in weakness, hope in trial, and moments of encouragement to remind them that they are indeed thought of and loved. Let us not forget them, please. They are our husbands, fathers, brothers, uncles, cousins, friends... They are wives, mothers, sisters, aunts, as well. They are valued and needed and missed...

May the Lord "bless them... keep them... make His face shine upon them... be gracious to them... and give them peace."
Numbers 6:24-26

What a powerful image of the sheltering hand (God's?) or the laying on of hands to pray a covering of protection. *I* would be encouraged my this card if I got it!
