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.
