Reflections for Corporal Monty Dale Platt

RIP, May God be with you.

Field training officer Samuel Steinmetz

Every morning I go to my knees. During that time I pray Psalm 91 over all LEO’s and this prayer also:

“Lord, Be with all law enforcement officers. Keep them safe and free from harm. They are Your soldiers on the front line of the battle against evil. If one should fall this day - wrap their family in your loving arms. Surround them with Your angels, loving family, friends, neighbors and caring people to comfort them. Ease their pain. Help them to mourn well. In Jesus' name and for Your Glory, Amen.”

Feel His presence as God answers the prayers of many who have fallen to their knees on your behalf. Since the day of my son's death, I have carried every law enforcement officer and their family in my heart.

I have lifted your family to God every morning for over six years. I pray that Monty's life and death will bring glory to His name.

Trust those prayers. God is with you; He knows and will ease your pain.

Our faith helps us to see beyond the grave.

When we lose a member of the Blue family it's always tragic, but for those in our smaller family, those of us patrolling the colleges and universities, it's especially sad. We're in 'nice, safe' jobs. This is proof, that anyone, anywhere is at risk and we all wish that proof didn't exist.

My heart goes out to your family both at work and especially at home and they are in my prayers. So long as they keep you in their hearts and minds, you'll always be with them.

God Bless and may your eternal rest be ever peaceful.
