PARATROOPERS PRAYER:

Heavenly Father, King of the world 
I know that all things are in your hands
Whatever happens to me.

As a paratrooper
I am prepared to suffer hardship.
I am ready to endure danger and unrest,
Pain and hurt.
I am willing to be hungry and thirsty.
I am prepared to face the enemy fearlessly. 
Lord, I am weak.
I cannot depend on my own strength.
I do not want to trust in my own abilities.

Lord, my God,
Let me trust in you alone.
Give me courage and strength,
And, above all, faith
To do my work fearlessly — Always. AMEN


Reading of the names:

Code of honour:

I am a proud and fully pledged member of this Parachute Battalion, I am a member of a unit, which is second to none in the world.

I promise to serve my country and my nation at all times with pride and loyalty.

I promise to wear the insignia of my unit with pride and distinction and to conduct myself at all times as is require of a paratrooper. :

During battle I am first and foremost a paratrooper and promise to behave as such even if the enemy by far outnumbers us.

I pledge the highest sacrifice to my country should it be expected of me.

I believe in myself, I believe in my‘unit, I believe in my country and, above all, I believe in God.
