Quite some time ago, I came across this list
of 31 Ways to Pray for Our Military.
I had originally found it at a website
(as a disclaimer, I do NOT endorse that site
but mention it to give credit to the original list)
but took some time to alter it a bit
by adding additional Scriptures
and listing the Scripture (KJB)
instead of just giving the reference.
Below is that altered list:
