A Prayer for Law Enforcement Officers.
“God our law enforcement officers are in the middle of social upheaval and as one of the most visible symbols of the government, they are defiled and injured. We ask you, God, according to Psalm 91, for the safety of our law enforcement officers. This is no simple 24 hour passing of violence or some type of training exercise that will be forgotten in a few days. This is for keeps, a life or death fight to finish against the devil and all his angels. We look beyond human instruments of conflict and address the forces and authorities and rulers of darkness and powers in the spiritual world. As children of God, we enforce the triumphant victory of our lord Jesus Christ.
Our lord stripped our adversaries and powers, making a show of them openly. Thank you, Jesus, for defeating the evil one and his forces of darkness for us, and giving us authority to proclaim your name that is above every other name. All power and authority both in heaven and earth belong to you. Righteousness and truth shall prevail and nations shall come to the light of the Gospel.
As we stand in the gap for the people of the violent and burning cities, devil-overrun land. We expect an overflowing of your goodness and glory in the lives of those for whom we are praying. May they call upon your name and be delivered and remain safe in your loving arms.”
In the name of our Savior Jesus Christ. Amen.
