Prayer For Cops


Thank you for police officers and law enforcement everywhere.

They devote their lives to keeping us safe, and in doing so they demonstrate the sacrificial love that you first showed us.

Please continue to protect them in the face of danger.

Give them wisdom and clarity when making tough decisions and fill them with your integrity.

I also ask that you would give peace to their families and loved ones.

I pray this in Jesus' name.

Dear Police Officer,

I thank God every day for blessing our society with people like you to nip evil in the bud.

We can feel safe at home, at work, at the mall, and in the streets, thanks to you. I want you to know how grateful we are for your selfless service.

I want to encourage you to remain brave and courageous in the face of the risks and dangers that characterize your job, because the One in you is greater than the powers of darkness and evil in the world.

1 John 4:4 assures you that because of this, you have already overcome, even before the challenge arises.

Along with the Apostle Paul in Ephesians 6:20, I urge you to stay strong in the mighty power of the Lord. God's Word promises, in Isaiah 54:17, that no weapon can defeat you because you are a servant of the Most High God.

Creator God, thank you that your voice prepares us for eternal life. As we pray for our police officers today, we ask you would meet every need they have in their work. We ask that your strength would flow through them, giving the endurance they need to carry on. Give them encouragement that the work they do represents your character of justice and peace. We look forward to a day with no injustice and no oppression when you reign forever. We join with all creation in adoration of your precious name. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord, Amen.

Loving Father, thank you that you are always with us. We pray for police officers and ask that they would know your presence is with them as they face the challenges and demands of their job. When their work feels overwhelming, we ask that you would bring peace and clarity of mind. There is no purer source of peace and joy than you, Lord. You alone are worthy to receive our honor and worship for eternity. We exalt your powerful name above all other powers on the earth. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord, Amen.

Oh Almighty God, whose great power and eternal wisdom
embraces the universe.
Watch over all policemen and law enforcement officers.
Father in Heaven please give them the strength,
courage and perseverance to endure
The unjust condemnation, danger, and physical abuse
to which they are at times subjected.
We recommend them to your loving care because their duty is dangerous.
Dear God, grant these brave men your almighty protection,
Unite them safely with their families after duty has ended.

St. Michael, heaven's glorious commissioner of police,
who once so neatly and successfully cleared God's premises
of all its undesirables, look with kindly and professional
eyes on your earthly force.

Give us cool heads, stout hearts, and uncanny flair for
investigation and wise judgment.

Make us the terror of burglars, the friends of children and
law-abiding citizens, kind to strangers, polite to bores,
strict with law-breakers and impervious to temptations.

You know, St. Micheal, from your own experiences
with the devil that the police officer's lot on earth is not
always a happy one; but your sense of duty that so
pleased God, your hard knocks that so surprised the
devil, and your angelic self- control give us inspiration.

And when we lay down our night sticks, enroll us in your
heavenly force, where we will be as proud to guard the
throne of God as we have been to guard the city of all the people.

Oh Almighty God,
Whose Great Power and Eternal Wisdom Embraces the Universe,
Watch Over All Policemen and Law Enforcement Officers.
Protect Them from Harm in the Performance of Their Duty to Stop Crime, Robberies, Riots, and Violence.
We Pray,
Help Them Keep Our Streets and Homes Safe Day and Night.
We Recommend Them to Your Loving Care Because Their Duty is Dangerous.
Grant Them Your Unending Strength and Courage in Their Daily Assignments.
Dear God,
Protect These Brave Men and Women,
Grant Them Your Almighty Protection,
Unite Them Safely with Their Families After Duty Has Ended.
