Willing to Go

Willing to go into battle.

Willing to serve me and you,

Willing to serve the Nation,

Of the Red, White and Blue.

Protecting and serving,

The nation they love best.

Our American soldiers,

Have been put to the test.


They have fought many battles,

In the air, land and sea,

To protect our nation and others,

From the enemies that will be.

Our men and women fight,

For peace and for love.

And we pray God’s blessings,

Will cover them from above.


Many still struggle in battle,

It is in their mind today.

For that wounded American soldier,

We need to stop and pray.

There is pain in the battle,

And veterans left behind,

That should be forever in our hearts,

And weighing on our mind.


Ask for a peace for their sacrifice,

Only God can give that rest.

Our true American heroes,

Have passed every test.

They passed the test of loyalty,

And did what they were asked.

It wasn’t what they wanted,

But they completed every task.


When you see our American flag,

Think of those who protected it.

Their legend goes on forever,

The men and women who did not quit.

John 10:10

The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

There will always be wars and rumors of war, because Satan wants everyone to be miserable as he is. He brought sin into paradise and tainted God’s best creation. While we are here on this earth, we will face many battles. There are nations who have such a strong hate for other nations that they continually try to dominate and destroy them. Our great Nation was created “under God”, with a freedom that so many could only dare to dream about. We are a “melting pot” of nationalities, but should all be united under the flag that we serve. We have so many rights that are fought for by our leaders and our military. We must pray that our nation stays strong and that they remember that if God is for us, then who can be against. Pray for our veterans and those presently serving, that they have good lives and that the scars of the past be erased from their minds.  Also pray for those in other nations, that are also plagued by Satan, the true enemy.
