Lets all Pray that they come home Safe & Sound. Better yet ... Lets pray that they do not have to go at all ...

Prayers of that sort reflect a belief that God has a hand in and an ability to influence each of our lives moment-to-moment, situation by situation. In other words, a belief that he controls or at least has the ability to control all things. So we must recognize that God wants wars and people to die painfully, otherwise it would not happen.

2:02, I think 12:35 gets it quite well. Think about it - does God control everything or not? If not, what do our prayers have to do with the safety of these troops? You can be assured that the troops are doing a lot of praying at times but nasty things still happen to them. What if they hadn't prayed? Would the results have been different?

If the troops' safety is our concern, why not just take control of their welfare and NOT send them there and bring the others home? This might work better than praying. Let's fight the necessary wars in the right places - and Iraq doesn't qualify.

I dont think God wants us to have wars between each other, but I also dont believe it is "God's will" just because things happen (i.e. car accidents or terminal illnesses.) There are things that are just part of life and part of this world that He made for us. Death is a part of it as well.

He has always had effect and taken sides.
