9 Powerful Prayers for Soldiers In Basic Training

With a volunteer military force, every member that enlists should be given praise for their choice and sacrifice. These powerful prayers for soldiers in basic training will encourage you to keep their safety and success at the forefront of your mind.

Prayer #1

Father, grant my son the health of body mind soul and spirit. May he have the health courage strength ability luck conviction to complete training. May all the recruits help and motivate each other in difficult times and always do their best. With our trust and faith we place in you, Amen.

Prayer #2

I pray my son will become like the centurion who had such great faith in Jesus that Jesus marveled. I want him to understand authority like the soldier, whose understanding enabled him to grasp the mighty power and authority of Jesus. I want him to be humble like the soldier who said that he was not worthy of Jesus coming to his house – though Jesus was coming, thought him worthy of coming – this soldier who probably recognized the sin within him – it didn’t stop him from reaching out to God – I want my son to be like that soldier.

I want him to be a soldier, like this soldier, who loved the Jewish Nation, who helped build churches – because then my son will love both our country and Israel – and he will seek to build good things. This son who I have called “Faithful” since he was littler than five, I want it said, “When Jesus heard these things, he marveled at him, and turning to the crowd that followed him, said, “I tell you, not even in Israel have I found such faith. Amen.

Prayer #3


Thank You for the men and women that protect this nation! Father, as they protect us, protect them as well! Lord, You know where they will be today and I pray that You will be there with them to guide them through whatever challenges and trials they face this day. I thank You for these men and women, Lord! I love You! Amen.

Prayer #4

Lord, I ask for courage.
Courage to face and conquer my own fears….
Courage to take me where others will not go.
I ask for strength…
Strength of body to protect others..
Strength of spirit to lead others.
I ask for dedication…
Dedication to my job, to do it well…
Dedication to my country, to keep it safe.
Give me Lord, concern…
For those who trust me and compassion for those who need me.
And please Lord…..
Through it all be at my side.

Thank You for the men and women who are on our soil defending us from nuclear threats and attacks.

a place in His Kingdom.
