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.

Lord I ask for strength.

Strength of body to protect others... Strength of spirit to lead them.

Lord I ask for dedication.

Dedication to my job, to do it well... Dedication to my community, to keep it safe.

Lord I ask for compassion.

Compassion for those who need me... Compassion for those who do not trust me.

And Lord I ask for your protection. To be by my side so that I may return home from each day safely to my loving family. This I pray.
