Answered Prayer! Military Recruits Strengthened by Jesus

Powerful testimonies. Your prayers have made a difference. Here’s how:

Every week, we receive prayer requests from U.S. Army Soldiers in Basic Combat Training. They miss their families, struggle with crippling injuries, and are emotionally, physically, and mentally exhausted.

But God is showing up in Boot Camp! Through your prayers, God is meeting these recruits in their greatest time of need and giving them hope. They are experiencing healing and restoration. And praise God, many have dedicated their lives to Jesus.

Here are some of the testimonies we’ve received about their powerful encounters with God:

  • “I became much closer to God during my time at basic military training. I was away from him and reading Scripture and praying every night brought me back to him.”
  • “While in basic, I was handed a Military Bible after years of not being faithful. I found God and Christ again, and was baptized here at Military Bible Basic Training. Without God, I would not have made it through this experience here.”
  • “Treated my platoon mates with love and patience that only God can give. This kind of love I plan to take beyond Military Bible Basic Training.”
  • “By staying focused in God’s Word, I survived basic.”
  • “I began reading the Military Bible while at basic, because battle buddies said it would help me through my problems, and it really has helped.”
  • “This book has helped me through some tough times during my time at basic training and I have started my own Bible study at my work.”

Let’s Thank God Together

Father, we thank you for the beautiful ways you have strengthened Military recruits in basic training. We pray according to Psalm 75:1:

“We give thanks to you, O God, we give thanks to you! We proclaim how great you are and tell of the wonderful things you have done.”

God, please continue to make your Word known. Provide the resources needed so that every military recruit will experience the life-changing message of the Bible. And please bless all those who pray for and support this ministry.
