The Policeman’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…”

Let’s take a moment and look at the 4 Requests we find in the Policeman’s Prayer.

1.  A Prayer for Courage

Law enforcement officers are the kind of men that run towards gunshots, when everyone else is running away.

They run into violence to bring peace. They run into the unknown to bring order. The run towards the shots to stop the shooter.

If you or someone you love is a police officer, thank you!

2. A Prayer for Strength

Law enforcement officers face the threat of physical force against them every day that they leave their families, and go to work.

Criminals often attack without warning, and with deadly force. The Police Officer’s Prayer makes a request for strength to face the day, and strength to face the foe.

3. A Prayer for Dedication

Our “Brothers in Blue” must be dedicated to the call. They pray for dedication to see them through the most difficult of moments.

The loss of another officer, being first on scene for horrible tragedies, and witnessing the worst that humanity has to offer, is a shock of mortality on the soul.

4. A Prayer for Concern

For the officer, many times he turns towards the callousness of his heart, to bear the heavy burden of his duties. He shuts down his emotions to accomplish the more painful missions.

Yet, the best of them desire to remain concerned. They want to remain concerned for their own families, and for your family, and the safety of the community they serve.

May the Lord hear the Policeman’s Prayer and bless them for the sacrifice that they and their families make, every day.

As you read this article it is our sincere hope that you will take the time, a quiet moment right now, to pray for your local law enforcement officers. These are not perfect men, even the best of men are only men at best. They need your prayers. Will you pray right now?

If you are an officer reading this, we want to say THANK YOU!
