2: The Army Wife's Prayer Dear Lord, Give me the greatness of heart to see the difference between duty & his love for me. Give me the understanding that I may know, when duty calls him he must go. Give me a task to do each day, to fill the time when he's away. And Lord, when he's in a foreign land, keep him safe in your loving hand. And Lord, when duty is in the field, please protect him & be his shield. And Lord, when deployment is long, please stay with me & keep me strong. Amen.
