A Prayer for Corporal Monty D. Platt:

Lord God of Mercy, Peace, and Love, we remember before Your throne in this moment our Brother-in-Blue, Corporal Monty D. Platt, of the West Texas A&M University Police Department, Texas Police Department, who sacrificed his life in the Line-of-Duty. We recall with gratitude and respect all that he stood for in this life. Help us to live in the companionship of his spirit. May we be kind to the family, friends, and colleagues he loved; devoted to the university and state in which he served; and loyal to the causes which he championed in law enforcement. Thus, in our life, may he live on, to our great comfort, to the betterment of Your creation, and to the furthering of Your most Holy Will. Almighty God, we ask that you grant us a deeper appreciation of the efforts of all police officers who serve our communities and states daily. For their dedication to our security, order and peace, we give You thanks. May they be encouraged in their work which benefits us all. Help us to grow that spirit of community that will make their job both easy and fulfilling. And now may our fellowship together and Your blessing today bring a renewed sense of joy to each of us. Amen.

“Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God." [Matthew 5:9 ESV]
