U.S. Army Ordnance Prayer
The Ordnance Corps Regimental Prayer was written by Edward C Starnes and adopted officially by Major General John G. Coburn on March 4, 1994. (source)
Our Father, we pray for the strength of mind, heart and body to continue to serve our Army and our Nation. Help us remember and emulate the heritage of excellence set by those who established, nurtured and led the Ordnance Corps before us. May the shell and flame continue to light the way toward selfless service, dedicated professionalism and passionate patriotism as we support our Nation’s role as a leading force toward peace and liberty in the world.
Oh Lord, we ask that you provide us the wisdom to continually take charge of change and shape the Ordnance Corps to provide service to the line, on the line, on time. Guide us as we seek to establish our own heritage of courage and honor through our daily duties. Give us the strength to accept our responsibility to our fellow soldiers as we seek to fix and arm the force.
Oh God of Our Fathers, bless our efforts to provide the “Armament for Peace” and protect us if we must answer the call to arms to defend our faith, our liberty and our freedom. Teach us not to mourn those who have died in the service of the Corps, but rather to gain strength from the fact that such heroes have lived. Teach us to stand together in Your Name so that we may remain strong and that the Ordnance Corps shall remain the architect of readiness for our Army and our Nation.
