In his earlier life, Bryan Jenisch dedicated himself to serving his country as a Marine; he now serves fellow veterans and their families at one of life’s most difficult times. Veterans Funeral Care has given him a platform to help veterans plan ahead when making cemetery, funeral, or cremation arrangements. He recently commented that after delivering the cremated remains of a fallen Marine to a family that it was “not my duty to do so, but my honor, for you should always find a Marine taking care of his own in all capacities.” The following is the Marines prayer which beautifully expresses this sentiment:
Almighty Father, 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. 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 again.
Guide me with the light of truth and grant me wisdom by which I may understand the answer to my prayer.
