Southern Baptists respect and appreciate America’s military men and women who defend our country.
One of the ways we serve the military is through more than 3,600 chaplains, who are endorsed by our North American Mission Board.
One of those chaplains we want to pray for today.
Anthony Beazley is a Southern Baptist chaplain who serves at the government’s VA medical center in West Palm Beach, Fla. More than 100 of our chaplains serve at VA hospitals like this one.
Anthony is a pastor to soldiers and veterans who come here for treatment. Some patients he listens to and visits like he is their friend — because he is indeed a friend.
Sometimes patients who are near death will ask questions about eternity. Anthony is able to tell them what the Bible says.
While the hospital pays Anthony’s salary, our church’s Cooperative Program giving helps fund our North American Mission Board which endorses and supports our chaplains.
So today we want to pray for Chaplain Beazley and thank God for his faithfulness and the ministry he provides to our brave military men and women, who risked life and limb for us.
