For a Soldier and his Family, he just left to Iraq!


Please keep our friend Sgt. Rivera and his family in prayer. He left to Iraq (for his third tour) this week. He left behind a young wife and three precious little ones. She is a strong girl, but having Christmas be so close has made it harder on them.

Please pray for his safety and of all the other men that left with him. That they all return home safely.

Please pray for his wife and the children, that they will be strong, safe and well while he is gone. I also wish the same for all the other families.

“Eternal Father I offer Thee the Wounds of our Lord Jesus Christ to heal those of our souls”
“My Jesus, pardon and mercy, by the merits of Thy Holy Wounds”


Praying for this soldier and his family…


Praying for them, and all soldiers and their families. Please, Lord, bring our troops home again safely. And watch over their families while they are gone. Amen.


Praying for this brave warrior and his family!


Lord, please give Your blessings and protection for this man and for all who serve overseas. Please keep them and their families safe and blessed in all respects. Thank You, Lord

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou among women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death. Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception, please pray for this family and all others in the military.


Dear Jesus

Please bless all soldiers and their families, especially over this Christmas time. Grant Sg. Rivera and his family safety, watch over and protect them. Fill them with your love so that being so far apart from each other, they may be united through you. Give them every grace they need, and draw them ever closer to you.



I am praying for all soldiers and their families. St. Michael and St. Christopher please pray for our soldiers and their families. Jesus we humbly ask that you please watch over the soldiers and their families. Amen
for those of you who know Catholic soldiers this is a great link for them and their families.
