American Troops in Iraq Spend Christmas Under Fire

Hotels, foreign embassies, coalition headquarters and patrols were targeted by bombs that killed four U.S. soldiers and six Iraqi civilians.

O Lord God of Hosts, stretch forth, we pray Thee, Thine almighty arm to strengthen and protect the soldiers of our country. Support them in the day of battle, and in the time of peace keep them safe from all evil; endue them with courage and loyalty; and grant that in all things they may serve without reproach; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. -- the old B.C.P.
