Support your local and state law enforcement officers
Heavenly Father, We come before you today grieved in heart over the divisions in our land. We grieve for every life lost to violence, regardless of color or creed. And we especially grieve this day over the senseless deaths of law enforcement officers whose sworn duty is to protect us from harm. Please grant comfort and hope to their families.
We know from Romans 13 that they have a sacred task, to enforce laws that protect the innocent and punish the guilty. We pray that you will protect them as they serve us. Give them wisdom, discernment, and a deep desire to serve you.
Please surround every law enforcement officer in our land with battalions of warring angels to protect them from harm. We stand together in the powerful and mighty name of Jesus against every work of Satan intended to inflict injury and death on our protectors. May his power be thwarted, in your mighty name, and his plans exposed by your light.
Lord, we know that your word teaches us that in you there is neither Jew nor Greek, neither slave nor free, neither male nor female. All superficial distinctions between us have been abolished by your work on the cross. By your grace and power, lead us into a new day of racial harmony in our land, a day in which your name is again lifted high in our nation and the rule of law is honored by all. Please grant us spiritual, political, and cultural leaders who will speak to us with your wisdom and your truth.
Please renew us in spirit, mind, and heart that we may once again be one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all. In the mighty name of Jesus, amen.
