Sample Intercessions for the Universal Prayer
The following samples can be used as a model for preparing intercessions, and can be adopted according to need:
For those who have served in the military; for veterans and all military personnel, for those still in combat, for gratitude, safety, healing, and peace. We pray to the Lord.
For our Armed Forces; for the military personnel who have gone overseas, and for all who long for their safe return. We pray to the Lord.
For those engaged in military service; for those who combat war and violence daily, and risk their lives that our world may know peace. We pray to the Lord.
For families separated from their loved ones in the military; and for the strength they need to face this time of isolation and uncertainty. We pray to the Lord.
For the Church and all military chaplains, for preachers and counselors, and for all who bring guidance and support to our troops and their families. We pray to the Lord.
