Prayer for Departing Troops

All-powerful and ever-living God,

when Abraham left his native land

and departed from his people

you kept him safe through

all his journeys.

Protect these soldiers.

Be their constant companion and

their strength in battle,

their refuge in every adversity.

Guide them, O Lord, that they may

return home in safety.

We ask this through Christ our Lord.

- USCCB Committee on the Liturgy
