A Policeman’s Prayer
Another day, Lord, to do my work,
Unsure of what lies ahead.
It may hold the chance to help those in need;
And that would be my desire.
I pray that You will empower me to be a
Peacemaker to all I come in contact with.
To the helpless, may I be a helper,
To the distressed, may I be a comfort.
To those who plan evil, may I be a deterrent,
And to those who have carried out their plans,
May I be a sword of justice so they will no longer
Prey on the weak and hurting.
I humbly ask that You surround me with Your angels
And a wall of fire for protection.
And if, in the course of Your plan,
I find this day to be my last,
The concern of my life is that You would be
The Father to my children and
The Provider to my wife.
In Jesus’ Name.
A Police Officer’s Prayer
Lord I ask for courage
Courage to face and
Conquer my own fears...
Courage to take me
Where others will not go...
I ask for strength
Strength of body to protect others
And strength of spirit to lead others...
I ask for dedication
Dedication to my job, to do it well
Dedication to my community
To keep it safe...
Give me Lord, concern
For others who trust me
And compassion for those who need me...
And please Lord
Through it all
Be at my side.
