Operation Worship Holy Bible


I was given the privilege to review The Operation Worship Holy Bible Home Front Edition NIV compliments of Tyndale House Publishers. What a great mini Bible this was for anyone serving in our countries armed forces. It measures approximately 4 by 6 inches with a pink and green camoflauge color in it's paperback form.

I could see how this would be extremely convenient to our men and women serving away from home to keep the word of God close. You could easily keep this in your pocket or in your pack so His word is never far away and the weight is nice. I love as well that this Bible is completely dedicated to those serving in our armed forces. Here is the opening prayer that lies just inside the front cover:

O Lord,
while we are apart, make us instruments of your peace.
Where there is hatred, let us plant the seeds of your love;
Where there is anger...restraint;
Where there is brutality, ...kindness;
Where there is fear,...courage;
Where there is pride,...humility;
Where there is blindness,...wisdom.

Lord, while we are apart, help us to entrust our lives to you.
Where there is loneliness, make your presence known;
Where there is doubt, give us faith;
Where there is despair, awaken in us hope;
Where there is darkness, shine your light;
Where there is sadness, fill us with joy.

Lord, while we are apart, bless us and protect us.
Smile on us and be gracious to us.
Show us your favor and give us your peace.
And use us to plant seeds of blessing
wherever we go, whatever we do,
in everything we say.

We pray all these things
for the sake of Your Name and Your Kingdom.

AMEN
(Inspired by the Peace Prayer of Francis of Assisi and Numbers 6:24-26)

As you can see this is truly an inspiring Bible to offer to anyone of our personal serving in the military. The colors are geared more for a woman than a man but it really does encourage them throughout the Bible while they are separated from their family and friends.

What a beautiful prayer.

We bought several of the male version and sent them several years ago. I can tell you, having a son in the military who has been deployed to Iraq and is scheduled to go to Afghanistan early 2011, people sending bibles and other positive and encouraging things is a wonderful thing. It is all so very appreciated!! Thanks for the review!! Love and Blessings

That's beautiful Kat! They would be so blessed to have it! I'm sure they need all the encouragement they could get and there's no better encouragement then God's.

Making cakes is so much fun, especially when you get to see the faces light up! You should try it.

So glad I came across your post this morning. These little Bibles could be huge blessings for those in our armed forces.

Thanks for visiting Saved by Grace. I look forward to reading more of your stuff and getting to know you better!:) -- Lou
