  1. Father in PSALMS 91 we are told, “Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart”. In John 11:25 Jesus said: “Whoever lives and believes in me shall never die”. I also pray you will comfort the family of this warrior as they mourn. Give them the strength to understand your wisdom. AMEN
