Army Girlfriend Prayer For Deployment
Please grant me the strength to hold back my tears, and show him that smile that he loves one last time
Just until I drive away, so that he will know I can be strong for him
Please, Lord, guide my words so they come out the way I have practiced them over and over in anticipation of this day.
Lord, guide his arms to embrace me just a little tighter this time, and please, make it last.
Guide my eyes toward his and help me say goodbye.
Please give me courage to wake up every day, and do the things here that need to be done, even though he is all I think about.
Hold me, Lord, while he can not, and catch my tears as they fall for him.
Tell him, Lord, how much I miss him, and how hard it is to fall asleep without him next to me, so that he knows my loyalty to him.
But more than anything, I ask you to watch over him. Protect him from harm and, please, Lord guide him home safely to me
