A Marine Wive's Prayer

Dear Lord,
Give me greatness of heart to see, the difference between duty and his
love for me.
Give me the understanding so I may know, when duty calls he must go.
Give me a task to do each day, to fill the time when he is away.
And, Lord, when he must fly so high, watch over him nigh.
And, Lord, when he goes out to sea, bring him safely home to me.
And, Lord, when duty is in the field, please protect him and be his shield.
And, Lord, when he is in foriegn land, keep him safe in your loving hand.
And, Lord, when deployment is long, please stay with me and keep me strong!
