Marine's Prayer - I





Almighty God, whose command is over all and whose love never fails,
make me aware of Thy presence and obedient to Thy will. Keep me true to
my best self, guarding me against dishonesty in purpose and deed and
helping me to live so that I can face my fellow Marines, my loved ones and
Thee without shame or fear. Protect my family. Give me the will to do
the work of a marine and to accept my share of responsibilities with vigor
and enthusiasm. Grant me the courage to be proficient in my daily
performance. Keep me loyal and faithful to my superiors and to the duties
my country and the Marine Corps have entrusted to me. Make me
considerate of those committed to my leadership. Help me to wear my
uniform with dignity, and let it remind me daily of the traditions, which
I must uphold.
If I am inclined to doubt, steady my faith; if I am tempted, make me
strong to resist; if I should miss the mark, give me courage to try.
Guide me with the light of truth and grant me wisdom by which I
may understand the answer to my prayer. Amen.
