As we have the right to choose our faith we all pray and ask for His guidance and protection as we march in to battle to fight the evils of the world as this was the foundation our nation was built on.


To guard against the foreign intrusion on our nation and to insure peace, democracy and the rights of all nations. .

To the friends and family of ... We Pray

Almighty God, Lord of earth and sky and sea, we praise and thank you for the gift of life, and especially for the lives of those who serve in defense of the freedom we enjoy.

We pray for all the men who have served on the United States Naval Ship, U.S.S. Walker, and especially for those who have gone forth from this life.

Send your blessing on them and their families, and give eternal rest and peace to those you have called from this world to yourself.

Protect also those who are in service on the seas and bring them safely home to their homes and families. Amen.
