God wants to deliver us from every evil known to mankind

And that protection does not stop just because we might be on foreign soil, alone on a dangerous mission, or in the middle of a fierce battle. In his book “A table in the presence” Lieutenant Carey Cash tells firsthand of our military´s entry into Baghdad, and gives us eyewitness reports of the miraculous delivering power of our God.

On April 10, 2003, the first battalion, 5th Marine Regiment, marched into downtown Baghdad to seize Saddam Hussein´s presidential palace, only to find themselves ambushed by militants hiding in mosques, storefronts, and homes. Hundreds of troops came face-to-face with a blitz of rocket-propelled grenades (RPGs), gunfire, and sure defeat. Yet their report tell a different story:

-A rocket splicing its way through an armored vehicle packed with Marines hits no one.

-A Marine finds a bullet´s entrance and exit holes in his helmet, yet has no injury.

– A squad of Marines watch in amazement as their enemies prepare to fire from point-black range, then pause and drop their weapons, running away in terror

– An RPG, fired from  only a few yards away, inexplicably swerves and misses its intended target.

When the smoke  of the battle cleared, only one American soldier had lost his life. The Marines could not deny God`s protection, not only on this day but in the months that led up to this moment as well. From a spiritual revival in Northern Kuwait, to miraculous escape from  death, to baptizing a Marine in Saddam Hussein´s palace, Lieutenant Cash – a chaplain with the United States Navy and a battalion chaplain to infantry Marines, the first ground combat force to crosss the border into Iraq – recounts that remarkable events, one after another, of God´s faithfulness.
