Deployment is one of those times where the power of prayer can be hugely beneficial. When my heart is anxious, I know these verses can help calm me down and give me the perspective I need. The cool thing about the Bible is that it wasn't written for one specific audience. It was written for all. What I find helpful being a military wife, someone else will find helpful for an entirely different reason. Even if you aren't a military wife going through deployment, I encourage you to check out these 10 verses and pray over them this week!
