The reason why we worship God is to ask his guidance and power. During a battle, troops have the bravest hearts to defeat enemies because they know that they have God in their hearts. Though many have been challenged to join the army, only a few are chosen to be one. The reason is that they did not put God as their top priority and fear took over.
Honestly, there is no better honor to see marines worshipping because no one can beat our Almighty Father. In this article, I will be showing how our marines show their dedication to God.
“10,000 Reasons” Marine Worship
Troops of US Marines from the School of Infantry-East has been featured singing the worship song “10,000 Reasons” to God. These marines have been singing praises to the Lord to offer their ultimate salute to God.
School of Infantry offers help during the second stage of initial military training after being recruited. Aside from infantry training and combats, SOI also managed to allocate the wellness of its trainees. Not only that, but they also conduct weekly worship services and bible studies.
The marines sing “10,000 Reasons” to the Lord while putting their hands up. This only shows that in every battle they have encountered, they still put God in their hearts. As what other people say, no one beats a man who has God in his heart.
This video uploaded on Facebook was taken during one of their weekly worship services. So far, they have accumulated millions of viewers who watched their video and left heartwarming comments.
One of those was:
“Thanks for sharing this, what a beautiful sight to see our strongest of men in the country STANDING STRONG FOR OUR SAVIOR, JESUS,”
