‘Endowed By The Creator’ is a magnificent historic collection of military prayers. For those of us who have experienced the horrors and stress of combat, it reminds us of the comfort and strength we drew from prayer. This blessed work reminds us that America’s Warriors and leaders have called on our creator in the darkest of times to help us through our trials. We should never forget or abandon the value of prayer for our men and women in uniform.”

 -General Anthony C. Zinni, USMC (ret.)
