Church prays for protection of troops
On March 19, 2003, the United States and its allies began bombing Iraq. The invasion was a call to war for the nation and a call to prayer for St. Paul's Lutheran Church in Bertha.
St. Paul's has prayed for individual members of the armed forces every day at 8:30 a.m., Monday through Friday, since the war began, said the Rev. Blake Rickbeil. They also pray for the church, the United States, U.S. allies and the world.
