Heavenly Father, to those families, friends, and colleagues of our beloved nation, the United States of America, who are suffering in the wake of the loss of a Law Enforcement K-9 Partner and Family Member in the Line-of-Duty, help us to provide support. Allow us to be their rock and fortress in a time of immense pain and uncertainty. Help us to keep them safe and nourished in their time of grief, suffering beside them as we move toward healing and reconciliation. Lord God, in Your compassionate mercy, hear my prayer. In Christ Jesus' mighty and holy Name, and by His authority, I pray. Amen.
