The Airborne Forces Collect

Written by Padre John Hodgins, the Collect linked men of all arms who wore the red beret.  It is based on Malachi Chapter 4, Verse 2:

"May the defence of the Most High be above and beneath, around and within us, in our going out and in our coming in, in our rising up and in our going down, through all our days and all our nights, until dawn when the Sun of Righteousness shall rise with healing in his wings for the peoples of the world, through Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen."
