OPSEC - Navy Operations Security

Always keep Navy Operations Security in mind.  In the Navy, it's essential to remember that "loose lips sink ships."  OPSEC is everyone's responsibility. 

DON'T post critical information including future destinations or ports of call; future operations, exercises or missions; deployment or homecoming dates.  

DO be smart, use your head, always think OPSEC when using texts, email, phone, and social media, and watch this video: "Importance of Navy OPSEC."

Debra--had not heard about the plane wreck. As the old poem goes "no man is an island, entire unto itself." And so, every family's hurt becomes one of ours as we send our prayers to God and ask for his grace.
It's bed time--God Bless

Eternal God--please keep us focused on your word as we hear about financial problems throughout the country. Help our Navy families as they deal with hardships. And keep our ears open to listen to others needs.
In Jesus Name, Amen

Eternal God
Thank you for sparing as many lives as you did in the path of the storm. Please be with the families in the St. Louis area who lost those they loved due to the torrential rains. Help us to be aware of the pain and suffering many are going through with loss of family, homes and businesses. And give us strength to reach out and help. In Jesus' name we pray, Amen

Dearest Lord
We continue to pray for those in the path of Hurricane Ike. Please keep all those who are affected in your arm's safety.
Also, for the terrible commuter train wreck just outside Los Angeles. Several have already been taken to the hospitals, several are missing and too many have died. Please be with their loved ones.
We know that where ever two or more are gathered, you are there also. Please be with our prayer warriors on this page and throughout the N4M site as we pray together. Amen

Molly...when Heather and Treasa have these attacks, they need to say out loud " I rebuke you satin...IN THE NAME OF JESUS." If some one was in that room before and involved in the occult they need to tell "it" it is not welcome and to leave in the "Name of Jesus.
Lord I plead the blood of Jeus over these two young ladies. I asked that you woul keep them safe from the evil that is trying to harm them. I ask holy sprit that you surround them and help in these ladies when they may be attacked. Lord post your Angels of protection around them and in their room.. Thank you LOrd for your protection over these young ladies and over all of our Sailors where ever they may be in this world. You are Lord over all !! In Jesus mighty and powerful Name I ask. AMEN

Dear Lord, We lift up the Gallagher family to you and pray for good health. This family has been a God send to many of us. Please keep Jarrod with the strength of eagles wings. He is so special to us. Help the medical team find an answer to help with shin splints. Continue to be with Jarrod on his PFA so he may continue to honor the Navy with you as his guide.
In Jesus Name we lift him up, Amen.

Dearest Prayer Partners
Today I tended to my mother's feet, remembering how Mary tended to Jesus. It was a humbling feeling and full of prayers. Thanks to all who prayed with me--My Mom was thrilled when I could help her understand the N4M prayer group.
God Bless and Thanks always.

I am asking for prayers to keep me energized as I stay at the hospital with my Mom. She has become confused and agitated--and the only way she will eat is if I am here with her. She has been a good parent and deserves the best she can have.
God Bless

Valerie--may the doctors find guidance in their help for Kaylie. We pray for medical intervention and for the grace of God to surround this young woman's care that she may grow in His sunlight.
