Our Heavenly Father,
We lift up every law enforcement officer in America. We ask that your protecting hand be upon them as they seek to carry out their tasks to protect their community, city, county, state and country. Grant them wisdom to make good decisions and especially protect them from all evil influences at all times. Use these men and women as instruments of righteousness to defend the weak and battle the wickedness that may come their way. May Your Hand of protection be upon their mind, soul, body and spirit every day. Grant them everlasting mercies and integrity as they travel on their beat and assignment to be servants of justice. May you especially give their families a peace that passes all understanding knowing Your watchful eyes are forever upon these protectors. May children, the homeless, the rich, the runaways, the addicts, those despondent, those hurting or those in need, be blessed by these men and women who are just an extension of Your endless love, justice and mercy, in the name of Jesus we pray, Amen.(author unknown)
May God’s spirit continue to inspire and direct you. Please accept my heartiest congratulations on your new position. Wishing you great success. May your new job be all that you wish for and a whole lot more.
I look forward to the next four years.
Michele Bell, PIO
