16 Good Prayers for Fallen Soldiers

Many soldiers pay the ultimate price in serving their country by giving their life, and this sacrifice allows the rest of the country to enjoy living in peace and continued freedom. Here are 16 good prayers for fallen soldiers.

Prayer for Comfort
Compassionate Jesus, You know when Your children die. You are aware of the death of my fallen hero. You say there is a season for life and death, but this season is not easy for me. My loved one has now entered into eternal life with You. I am at a loss. It is hard to go on. I pray that Your loving arms will surround them and comfort them with Your presence. Comfort me, too, Jesus. Speak to me and assure me that my fallen warrior is happy, and I should be happy for them. Remind me I will one day be together with my beloved warrior again and with You. Amen.

Prayer for Memories
Loving God, thank You for the promises in Your Word for Your children. I’m praying for my fallen soldier that I know is with You. Wipe away my tears, Loving God. Remind my heart that there are no more tears for my loved one because You have promised to dry each one. The tears my fallen warrior has cried have not been in vain because Your Word tells us that You have counted each one. I pray that as You wipe their tears…and my tears…away my memories of them will be joyous and beautiful. Amen.

Prayer for Open Arms
God of Loving Devotion, in the book of Acts You, told us how they martyred Steven for the sake of the Gospel. I come before You today for our fallen soldiers. They died to bless this country, the one founded on Your name and principles. I know that when Your children arrived in Heaven, You received them with open arms just as You did Stephen. I pray that Your open arms will fill each fallen hero with Your comfort. Fill their hearts with perfect love and joy in the knowledge of their heroism and their greatly appreciated and respected sacrifice for us. Amen.

Prayer for Eternal Rest
Heavenly Father, I come before You today on behalf of my fallen hero. You say that You know when the smallest sparrow dies, and You know the moment my loved one died. Thank You, Lord, that You have prepared a place of eternal rest for my loved one because they trusted in You. I pray that You bring the soothing and comforting rest that they need, now that my warrior is in his/her eternal home with You. Amen.

Prayer for Rooms in Heaven
Lord of Unfailing Love, my heart grieves for the soldiers who have fallen today. I know that You have received those who were Yours into Your presence, and these heroes are safe with You. Thank You for that comfort, Lord. Thank You for the promise of a place of rest that You gave us in Your Scriptures. I pray that You welcome my fallen brothers and sisters into their new homes and let them know how grateful I am for their sacrifice. Amen.

Prayer for Honor
God of Heaven’s Armies, as I think about the soldiers who have fallen today, my heart breaks for their families. I wish to honor them today with my prayer. You say that whether we live or die, it is for You. I thank You for their sacrifice and pray their deaths will not be in vain. I pray that these fallen heroes will feel my pride in their bravery and commitment to protect and defend. Amen.

Prayer for a Reunion
Heavenly Father, I remember my loved one who has fallen in battle. You promised that You will come down from heaven with the voice of the archangel and that the believers will rise first. I pray that until the day I can see my fallen hero again in Heaven, that You would continue to bless my beloved warrior. I pray You would tell him/her how much I love him/her. Amen.

Sibling’s Prayer for Eternity
God, my Promise-Keeper, You say that You will give eternal life to those who die in Christ. My friend and brother/sister died in honor on the battlefield. Thank You for granting my fallen hero the eternal rest promised in You, Christ Jesus. I pray that as my loved one is there with You now, that You would give my beloved warrior all the comfort that he/she could ever want. Amen.

Prayer for Love
Loving Jesus, my Refuge, my heart is grieving the loss of my loved one. My only comfort is that they knew You, Jesus, and therefore I know they are with You. You promise that You save completely those who come to You through Christ and that You are always able to intercede for them. I pray for my fallen hero and ask that You will surround him/her in Your love. Amen.

Prayer for Death’s Defeat
All-Powerful Father, my heart breaks for my loved one who has been lost in battle. You say there will be a new heaven and a new earth. You will dwell among us, and death will be no more. My loved one trusted in You, Father, so I know my fallen hero is there with You now. I pray that You would wipe every tear from my beloved warrior’s eyes and fill them with Your joy until we are reunited. I celebrate the defeat of our greatest enemy, death! Amen.

Prayer for the Unseen
Father of Compassion, my mind is scattered, and my heart is full of sadness because I have lost my loved one to battle. You say to fix our eyes on what is unseen because the unseen is eternal. I cannot see my loved one now, but I can close my eyes, and I can think of them. I can imagine what they are experiencing in Heaven with You. Fill my heart with the joy for the unseen, Father. Flood my love for my beloved warrior hero into them, there in Heaven with You. Amen.

Prayer of Thankfulness
Gracious Loving Lord, I cannot shake the sorrow from losing my loved one in battle. You say You give them eternal life, and they will never perish. I thank You, Lord, because even though my loved one has left this earth, I know they are with You. What a beautiful thought that my fallen hero is resting in Your hands, with wounds healed and floating in Your joy. Please bless my warrior with abundant love as they dwell in Your presence. Amen.

Prayer for the Resurrection
Blessed Lord, Thank You, Jesus, for breaking the power of death. Thank You that the death of my loved one, who has fallen in war, is not the end. Jesus, You died and rose from the dead. You ascended into Heaven as evidence of what happens to us when we die. I pray that You send my love to my fallen hero, who is at Your side. Amen.

Prayer for Blessings
Holy Lord, thank You for demonstrating the resurrection from the dead that lies ahead for us all. The promise that death will not separate us from Your love is especially on my mind. My precious loved one died in battle the other day, and my heart longs to see them again. Until I join my beloved warrior in Heaven, I pray, Lord, that You will cover them with Your blessings and pleasant memories of my love. Amen.

Prayer for Joy
Heavenly Father, You promise that nothing will separate us from Your love, not even death. What consolation this brings to my heart as I think of my loved one who has died in battle. I know that when they were passing from this life into eternal life, that they were in Your hands the whole way. What joy they must have had to be in Your presence, basking in Your glory. I pray that the pain, suffering, and battle damage will be removed entirely from their minds as they look to You in all Your beauty. Amen.

Prayer for God’s Presence
God of Enduring Faithfulness, thank You so much for all the promises that You have given in Your Word. Knowing that You are a faithful God that never lies, I can pray in confidence, knowing my loved one is in Your presence now. Thank You that their pain and suffering has come to an end. I pray, Lord, that You would replace all of those memories with thoughts and feelings of the love You and I have for my beloved warrior. Amen.
