Prayer for Those in Active Service

O God, we beseech Thee, watch over those exposed to the horrors of war and to
the spiritual dangers of a soldier’s, a sailor’s or an airman’s life. Give them such a
strong faith that no human respect may ever lead them to deny it or fear to
practice it. Do Thou, by Thy grace, fortify them against the contagion of bad
example, that, being preserved from vice, and serving Thee faithfully, they may
be ready to meet death wherever it may happen, through Christ our Lord.
Sacred Heart! Inspire them with sorrow for sin, and grant them pardon.
Mother of God! Be with them on the battlefield, and, if they should be called to
make the supreme sacrifice, obtain for them that they may die in the grace of Thy
Divine Son.
St. Joseph, pray for them.
May their guardian angels protect them! Amen.
O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee.
