The Amateur Eye – Combat Warfare

Prayer can describe a historical event.  It is often the preclude to battle.  Such history is born in the home, in church, a Presidential address.  Such was the following that, with God’s loving care, instilled the spirit to endure all the pain and suffering of self and as witness to, such with comrades where the goal of winning was a dream with no end.

Almighty God: Our sons, pride of our Nation, this day have set upon a mighty endeavor, a struggle to preserve our Republic, our religion, and our civilization, and to set free a suffering humanity.  Lead them straight and true; give strength to body, stoutness to their hearts, steadfastness of faith (and judgment coming from their brains for which they were trained.)..

They will need Thy blessings oh Lord and sore–tried by day and night without rest until the victory is won. Darkness will be flame and noise.  Souls will be shaken with the violence of war.  Torn from the peace of home, they march to the tune of the battle.  For some will not return to that peace, to home, to family.  Embrace these Father, and receive them, Thy heroic servants, into Thy Kingdom.  And for us who are at home, give strength with prayer by all, to fight injustice and evil.

And give us Faith in Thee; Faith in our children and each other; Faith in our united crusade to end evil wherever it raises it’s ugly head.  Let not the impacts of temporary events, of temporal matters of but fleeting moment–let not these deter us in our righteous purpose.

Our Land, our America is unique in the body of world nations. It is so because it stands for justice and honor framed in the monuments and statues that adorn our Capitol city Washington, DC. and parks. Our Founders based it on personal freedoms and largely religious ethical leanings, while imperfect allowed over time remedies that slowly assured such by laws and Constitutional integrity and honor of the human spirit.

No other nation has a welcome mat in the harbor to welcome visitors or returning citizens to it’s shores.  Enemies see it as weakness to be exploited; Americans guard it as being the rock upon which all men and women are created to live free.  So from the time of President George Washington our Nation sought to banish slavery which unfortunately exists even today due to humanity’s failure.  But hope is eternal.  Maybe that is God’s way of saying that life values freedom of the individual.  It is something to strive for as an eternal goal and be ever aware that freedom is just a wink from the slave master. –Don.
