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 all those who
trust me.
And compassion for
those who need me.

And please, Lord,
through it all,
be at my side.”

B. J. Hoff
