PRAYER FOR AMERICA’S LAW ENFORCEMENT

Almighty and Everlasting Father, we humbly beseech you of Your great goodness and mercy, to bless the men and women of America’s Law Enforcement with Your grace and peace. Watch over them and protect them from harm. Strengthen them with Your power and might. Grant them courage for the dangers they face and give them victory over the oppression and violence of the wicked. Give them compassion for the weak and the defenceless. Be a source of comfort for their loved ones and for those that fall in the line of duty, find them a place in Your heavenly kingdom. In Jesus name we pray. Amen
