Prayer For My Police Officer

If beating up a soldier would show how much you meant to me, then I would be on my way to the barracks. Not because I'm crazy, but because I would love to show how much you mean to me.

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.

Lord, police officers' days are filled with uncertainties and unknowns as they make quick and often life-changing or life-threatening decisions. Help them to be wise and invoke all their training and experience before moving or speaking. When they have the opportunity to investigate a situation before taking action and engaging, give them patience not to rush to judgment or anger.

If they discern a quick decision or movement is required, direct them to move swiftly but safely. If they need to wait for backup or ask for help, don't let them be prideful or rash, but consider the best outcome for everyone involved.

I pray Lord for their safety as they walk up to a car or house or unknown situation never knowing what danger awaits them. If they know you Lord, remind them to say their own prayer of protection and ask you to intervene against any foe. Perhaps something like David prayed, I come to you for protection, O Lord my God. Save me from my persecutorsrescue me! (Psalm 1:7 NLT).

And when they emerge safe and victorious, Father, as David did when he was rescued from Saul, give them a heart to give you the glory. If they don't know you as their Savior, become real to these officers. Let them know you took the bullet for them. 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.

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.
