What needs your prayer

The need for prayerful support of military men and women serving in areas of armed conflict can't be overstated. In my work as a Christian Science chaplain during three tours of duty in Iraq, I've given a lot of thought to praying for the troops, and I'm happy to offer a few insights on what soldiers face, so that our prayers for them can be more specific and far-reaching:

For me, the 23rd and 91st Psalms have been foundational, as well as this passage from Ephesians: "For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God ..." (6:12, 13).
