A leaders prayer

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. 
AMEN
