After four different officers were shot across the US on the same day. I remember that old scene in movie 48 Hours, when the police chief says that anyone who would kill a police officer represents an even greater threat to the average citizen. I assumed it was true back then. If it was, I don’t think it is anymore.
O Almighty God, Whose great power and eternal Wisdom embraces the universe, Watch over all policemen and Law enforcement officers everywhere.
Protect them from harm in the performance of their duty to stop crime, robbery, riots and violence.
We pray, help them keep our streets and homes safe, day and night.
We commend them to your loving care because their duty is dangerous.
Grant them strength and courage in their daily assignments. Dear God, protect these brave men and women.
Grant them your almighty protection, unite them safely with their families after duty has ended.
Please God, grant us this wish.
