A prayer request

For those of you that pray. I would like to request prayers for the safety of my son James. He is currently in Afganistan with the Army. (He is Air Force) He has been on several dangerous missions and has already gotten hurt once. He leaves Friday morning on another mission. I don't know where he's going, or how long he will be gone, but any prayers for his safety would be greatly appreciated. He will be in Afganistan until January (if they let him go when he is supposed to) and his pregnant wife is staying with us. We are all nervous wrecks to say the least. Anyway, I appreciate any and all prayers to whomever you pray to. Thanks

I'm not sure if this is in the right place, or even if you allow this type of thing. Please feel free to move it or remove it if necessary.

He'll be in our prayers today - all of you will be.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

It's not always what you say but what they hear.

That must be very hard. No one that I have known has ever been in the armed forces, but I have always admired those who are. It takes a special type of person to do what they do, and they all deserve our respect.

My prayers are with you and your son.

Your entire family will be in our prayers and dinner blessing tonight.

Thank you for serving our country. I believe that its more than just the men on the line. Their families serve us too. Bless you all!!

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

I will keep him in my prayers. I hope he is able to come home safely in JAN. I hope all goes well with the baby as well.

It's not the will to win, but the will to prepare to win that makes the difference.

Bless your son for putting himself on the line for us. He will be in my prayers for his safety and the arrival of a healthy baby.

May the Lord bless your son and keep him safe while he serves our Country.

Never approach a bull from the front, a horse from the rear or a fool from any direction.
