whose command is over all and whose love
never fails, make me aware of Thy presence and obedient
to Thy will. Keep me true to my best self, guarding me
against dishonesty in purpose and deed and helping me
to live so that I can face my
fellow Marines, my loved ones and Thee without shame or fear.
Protect my family. Give me the will to do the work of a
Marine and to accept my share of responsibilities with vigor
and enthusiasm. Grant me the courage to be
proficient in my daily performance. Keep me loyal and
faithful to my superiors and to the duties my country
and the Marine Corps have entrusted to me. Make me
considerate of those committed to my leadership. Help me
to wear my uniform with dignity, and let it remind me daily of
the traditions which I must uphold.
If I am inclined to doubt, steady my faith; if I am tempted, make me strong to resist; if I should miss the mark, give me courage to try again.
Guide me with the light of truth and grant me wisdom by which I may understand the answer to my prayer.
