    What is the word?

    Hi,

    How do we call a person who dedicates his life for his religion, nation and country?

    I can't think of a specific term for that.

    I believe I have heard a word but unfortunately I don't remember.

    Well, if you remember it, let us know! I can't think of one.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I got a word "Patriot", a person who loves their country and fight for it to protect.

    not a teacher

    A "patriot" is someone who loves and defends their country, but your inclusion of "religion" in your question makes "patriot" inappropriate as "patriotism" does not refer to religion. Such a person as you describe might be called a "zealot" in some contexts, but the term has connotations of fanaticism.
