Father all-powerful and ever-loving God,
from before we were born,
your love has nurtured and sustained us.
Hear my prayer for (name), my (son/daughter).
Keep (him/her) safe in time of battle
and faithful to you, day in and day out.
Bring (him/her) safely home to those who love (him/her).
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
