Airmen's Prayer

Pilot divine, and Lord of all on high
Thine are the starry squadrons of the sky!
Lead us whose wings for freedoms sake now soar,
Into our hearts thy faith and courage pour
Oh hear our prayer.
Set Thou our course whose trust is laid in Thee!
Oh Thou who chartest all eternity!
Through cloud and sunshine, through darkest night
Guide Thou our wings who battle for the right
Oh hear our prayer.

Father and friend, in whose almighty name
We dedicate our lives to freedom's flame,
Bless now our wings as on through space we wend.
Bless us who to Thy care our souls commend
Oh hear our prayer.

W/C G. L. Creed

Infantryman's Prayer

Almighty God, whose will it is that we be leaders of men,
hear us as we come to you for guidance in this awesome
responsibility.  Let us never forget our duty in the men whom
lead.  May we instill in them the qualities of loyalty, integrity,
and duty.  Grant us the patience in dealing with the mistakes
of our fellow man.  Let us never forget that no man is perfect,
but that perfection for fragile humans is trying each day to
be better than the day before.  Give us courage, O Lord, in the
face of danger, keep us pure in heart, clean in mind, and strong
in purpose.  Remind us that wisdom is not gained in an hour,
a day, or in a year, but it is a process that continues all the
days of our lives.  Keep ever before us our goal which is not
to perpetrate war, but to safeguard peace and preserve your
great gift to man, Freedom.  May you always be near to guide
us in decisions, comfort us in our failures, and keep us humble
in our successes.  We ask your divine blessings and leadership
as we discharge the honor and responsibility of leading men
in the service of our country.  Walk close to us always,
our father, that we may not fall.
