Whether it is a physical or psychological injury, ask God to bring healing to all veterans.

When returning home from a war, veterans have a new battle to fight. This battle is one of healing, both physical and spiritual.

The wounds left by war can last decades, and in many cases never truly heal in this life. The psychological and spiritual effects of witnessing such tragic events goes deep into a veteran’s soul and typically can only be fully healed by God.

Here is a prayer posted on the Archdiocese of Washington‘s website that prays for all veterans, asking God to heal them as well as pledging to do all we can to support them.

Help us, dear God, to see your face in every Veteran we encounter. Guide us as we imagine new ways to support Veterans and their families. Bring healing and peace to all who have been wounded physically, mentally and spiritually during wartime. Help us bring your saving grace to heal the invisible wounds of war. We ask this in Jesus’ holy name. Amen.
