Marines Gather Together In Praise & Worship, Singing ‘Days Of Elijah’

Oftentimes, many perceive members of the military to maintain a stern look and demeanor when it comes to their mannerisms. Aptly, this is the rigid candor that is expected, due to the importance of obtaining an attitude and emotional strength that is fit for battle. However, there are times where veterans break character and show a bit of fun while they are serving at their base.

Despite the stern character expectation, footage was taken of a group of marines having a praise and worship session. They were shown in rows, with their arms around each other and engaging in the song while the words were on the projector.

Here is an excerpt of the lyrics that they were boldly proclaiming.

“These are the days of Elijah

Declaring the word of the Lord, yeah
And these are the days of Your servant, Moses
Righteousness being restored

These are the days of great trials
Of famine and darkness and sword
Still we are the voice in the desert crying
Prepare ye the way of the Lord!
Say, behold He comes, riding on the clouds
Shining like the sun, at the trumpet’s call
Lift your voice, it’s the year of Jubilee
Out of Zion’s hill, salvation comes”
The arms around each other turned into being raised up in the air as a sign of surrender to God. In addition, a bit of liturgical expression was exhibited, filled with gratitude and jubilation.

Regardless of the position, every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord. In the perilous state that this country is experiencing, it is such a breath of fresh air to see those serving our country and protecting American citizens to worship the almighty God. As the song states, there is no God like Jehovah!
