As many of you may already know, we are a Christian military homeschooling family. And right now, I am asking you to join your faith with ours and pray/declare God’s promise of protection found in Psalm 91 over our troops at war all over the world. Currently my precious husband is in the middle East deployed in a combat zone for another year. Of course this takes on a whole new level of personal conviction being married to a soldier, BUT, even before we were married, I was praying for our troops. If you would be so inclined, I would ask you to take time out of your schedule to confess this powerful Psalm over their lives.
Another important thing to note is that from 1 August to 31 August is the Ramadan period during which Muslims practice a more intense religious life. For our troops it translates to increased attacks during this period. So now is as good a time as ever to begin to cover our troops by speaking the TRUTH of God’s Word over their lives.
Even though some of the troops are not yet believers, it is important to me that I still speak God’s promises over them as if they were. For the Word of God declares in Romans 4:17, “(as it is written, A father of many nations have I made thee) before him whom he believed, even God, who giveth life to the dead, and calleth the things that are not, as though they were.” So while we may not see the immediate manifestation in their lives, we have at least planted OR are watering a seed that God will surely bring to harvest!
The way we have been doing it for the last 8 years, is to simply insert “American and coalition troops” in certain places where the promise of protection is to us and change at times words like “I” to “we” or “they” or etc. It looks like this (I am using the Amplifed Bible and bolding what I have changed for confession/declaration purposes):
American and coalition troops shall call upon Me, and I will answer them; I will be with them in trouble, I will deliver them and honor them.

A great resource to help increase your faith about God’s promise of protection and gain freedom from fear is Gloria Copeland’s mini book, “Your Promise Of Protection: The Power of the 91st Psalm.” A FREE download can be found HERE (just click on the icon with this title).
THANK YOU to those who will join in with us speaking the Word of LIFE upon our soldiers as they continue to fight for the American way of life. I have been praying this Psalm over our troops daily for the last 8 years and have seen many miraculous results. To God be the Glory!
