A Prayer for Police Officer Kenneth Copeland:

Lord God of mercy, peace, and love, we remember before Your throne in this moment our Brother-in-Blue, Police Officer Kenneth Copeland, of the San Marcos, 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 community, county, 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.

Heavenly Father, be with the family, friends, and colleagues of this fallen hero. Comfort them and give them Your strength. Guide those who seek to take care of the family of this hero. May those empowered to do so, care for them with integrity. In commemorating the death of this hero, help those who mourn to remember that death is not the end. Death does not have the final say, but is simply the transition to the glorious life to come. They should look forward to that life to come with joy and thanksgiving.

Almighty God, we ask that you grant us a deeper appreciation of the efforts of all law enforcement officers who serve our communities, states, and country 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]

"Greater love has no one than this that someone lay down his life for his friends." [John 15:13 ESV]

The loss of Ken is a shocking tragedy. He was always courteous, kind, and professional with a beautiful smile to all of whom he came in contact. He will be missed by so many and we were all honored to know him and have him represent the San Marcos Police Department. I pray that God will strengthen his family, the department and all who knew and loved him.

Officer Ken Copeland a true gentleman. He was one of the nicest people you would ever want to know. I am so sad and so angry to hear about his death. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family, friends and his fellow officers. May God provide you with comfort.

"Angels In Blue" I had this friend you see, who loved God, Country, You and me. My friend went to work day or night the peace to keep, so you and I could sleep. He worked the holidays and weekends, away from family and friends. To keep this peace for you and me. Each day this friend put his life on the line to spare yours and mine. Then one day he paid the price, he gave his life. You've done well my friend, patrolling these earthly streets. Now it's time to walk on Heaven's beat. The next time you see a Police Officer or two, remember they are one of God's Angels in Blue. And God said; "Blessed are the Peace Makers." I found this poem and it seemed to fit. My condolences to the family, friends and co-workers of Officer Kenneth Copeland. May God give you comfort during this time of loss.

It will be a very sad Christmas for the family of San Marcos, Texas Police Officer Ken Copeland. He was killed while trying to serve a warrant to a criminal who had a history of committing violent crimes. At this time not just the family mourns but the police department and the entire community mourn the death of this brave police officer who was killed just 21 days before Christmas. It will be a very sad Christmas for the family of this fallen officer and for the community and the police department.

Ofc. Ken Copeland your life mattered!! My once Co-worker, my friend, my brother in blue...your infectious smile, memorable drawl and contagious laugh will be the memories I hold dear of you! Needlessly and senselessly ambushed by a coward, who robbed your children, wife, family both blood and blue of an amazing sheepdog! Rest easy brother - we will take the watch from here.
