Dear Lord, maker of heavens above

earth and sea below

hear our prayer

for the men and women

of the United States Air Force

as they answer

their Country’s call

to serve, defend, and protect

all we hold dear.

Accept their sacrifices

of time, energy, effort, blood, life.

In times of peace

and in times of strife

be with them and with their

families, loved ones

who they want to be with

but must leave …

our Nation to serve and defend.

Give them hope, peace,

joy without end,

and bless America

with Your Grace and Love.
