I just read Lt. Gen. Wm. G. Boykin's autobiography Never Surrender. He is near my age and was involved in so many of the conflicts that I remember. It made me appreciate even more the men and women who serve our country.
Especially during times of national crisis and terror alerts, I pray for those who protect us at the risk of their own lives.
I thought of David's prayer:
O LORD, how my adversaries have increased!
Many are rising up against me.
Many are saying of my soul,
"There is no deliverance for him in God." Selah.
But You, O LORD, are a shield about me,
My glory, and the One who lifts my head.
I was crying to the LORD with my voice,
And He answered me from His holy mountain. Selah.
I lay down and slept;
I awoke, for the LORD sustains me.
