Men and Women in Blue (Please join me in agreeing in prayer for our police officers)

Dear Men and Women in Blue,

As we enter these final days of the election, I send you this prayer and reminder that you are never alone. God is always with you and will strengthen you during this difficult time. There are many who are praying for you and are so grateful for you and all the officers that God has called into the selfless service of law enforcement.Thank You Lord for providing faithful men and women to stand against the evil of this world. Lord, You know the internal and external battles they face on a daily basis. Even as our police officers risk their lives to protect us, dear God, protect them also.Be a shield for them according to Psalm3:3. Lift up their countenances and be their comfort in the face of disheartening circumstances. “But You, O Lord, are a shield for me, My glory and the One who lifts up my head.“ (Psalm 3:3)Give them the courage and ability it takes to always do what is right and necessary.As David declared in Psalm 23:4, I ask that our officers remain assured of Your presence even in the face of the gravest of dangers. “Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; For You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.” (Psalm 23:4)Father, may they be strong and courageous, confident in Your promise to be with them wherever their duty may take them, just as You assured your servant Joshua. “Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”(Joshua 1:9)Lord, strengthen our officers to stay brave and strong in seemingly impossible situations. Please, keep them reminded, like Paul boldly declared, that it is in You that they possess the ability to do the impossible. “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. “ (Philippians 4:13)In cases where they have to make rapid decisions in extreme situations, Lord, may Your wisdom and courage cover and protect our officers. May they respond to situations in the fear of God, rather than depend on their own wisdom.Lord may Your peace be with our police officers while they discharge their duties. May You enlighten them with Your wisdom and clarity to make sound and moral decisions at all times. In accordance with Your Word, may they, by your Spirit, mete out justice and peace for all concerned. “For the one in authority is God’s servant for your good.”(Romans 13:4) And Lord, I ask that as they bring order to our society, You maintain and prosper their homes and families as well. Provide for them and protect them night and day. In Jesus’ Name, I pray. Amen.
