God, forgive me.
It could have been a command.
He had not lived a bad life. No worst than most. And he had done a few really good things — like leaving school early to fight for his country after 9/11.
He did two tours in Iraq with no incidents.
And now, on his third tour in the Middle East, while not Unbreakable, his combat record indicated he was pretty close.
That changed a moment ago before he knew how quickly it could be over.
God, forgive me, is all he knew.
He knew there was one. That He was watching and had been watching all his life; he never doubted that God existed. He also knew there could only be one. And he understood that He was forgiving.
So, for what he had done wrong or done badly, he asked god only for forgiveness..
when there was power
in JESUS’ name
Acts 2:38 (KJV) 38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.
