Blessed be the LORD, my rock,
who trains my hands for war,
and my fingers for battle.
The Shooter's Prayer
When I breathe my last,
And open my eyes in Glory,
May the first thing I hear be
“Unload and show clear.”
The Gunfighter's Prayer
Lord, make me fast and accurate.
Let my aim be true and my hand faster
than those who wish to harm me and mine.
Let not my last thought be “If only I had my gun”.
and Lord, if today is truly the day you are to call me home,
Let me die in a pile of brass.
The Sniper's Prayer (Saving Private Ryan)
Be not that far from me, for trouble is near;
Haste Thee to help me.
Blessed be the Lord my strength,
which teacheth my hands to war,
and my fingers to fight.
My goodness, and my fortress;
My high tower, and my deliverer;
My shield, and he in whom I trust;
Who subdueth my people under me.
O my God, I trust in thee:
Let me not be ashamed,
Let not mine enemies triumph over me.
