Gracious God, I ask that your hand of protection be on all those who are serving in Afghanistan, especially my friend Nate. It is hard to endure the separation from the ones we love and our hearts feel ragged with worry at times because of the danger they might be in. While our hearts are filled with deep love, our love alone cannot bring Nate back to us safely. So, I pray that you will do for him what we are unable to do. I pray also that when they are troubled by fear, confusion, loneliness, and doubt that you will wrap them in your embrace until the time of turbulence has passed. May your love bring them peace and strength and the certainty of knowing they are loved. I ask this in your name. Amen.
