Police Prayer:

Lord, I ask for courage
Courage to face and conquer my own fear
Courage to take me where others will not go
I ask for strength
Strength of body to protect others
Strength of spirit to lead others
I ask for dedication
Dedication to my job, to do it well
Dedication to my community, to keep it safe
Give me Lord concern for all those who trust in me
Compassion for those who need me
Lord, through it all, be at my side

My thoughts and prayers go out to the family and department, and let the lord watch over you and give you strength during these times.

At the beginning of every shift I supervise, myself and the other officers on shift dedicate the day to the memory of a fallen officer.

Tonight, January 30, 2004 we dedicated the shift to the memory of Police Officer Nick Sloan who died in the line of duty just hours ago.

When one law enforcement officer falls, we all stumble for a while, but we will carry on.

Officer Sloan's sacrifice will never be forgotten.

To the family of Police Officer Nick Sloan:

My sincere condolences at the loss of your loved one. My family laid to rest one of our own 4 days after Christmas. He was an Oklahoma Highway patrol and he was attempting to arrest a young man who was cooking methamphetamine on a country road. We know very well the pride he took in his work as I am sure Officer Sloan did. God sends truly special people to answer the call of law enforcement. May he give you the comfort and the peace to get through these next most difficult days.

There are but two persons who protect the sinful human race from destroying itself. One is God's Holy Spirit. The other is the Peace Officer. Without them, we would all perish at each other's hands.

You were called into this profession and our Lord and Savior has blessed you because:
According to Romans 13.1-5...
God ordains the Peace Officer’s profession.
The Peace Officer is sent by God.
The Peace Officer is vested with God's authority to enforce the law.
A Peace Officer's badge is to be honored by us, because it is honored by God.

You gave the ultimate sacrifice, your life for your fellow man, while serving, defending, and protecting others in your community.

To the family of Officer Nick Sloan and the St. Louis Police Department, your extended family of Law Enforcement Officers grieves with you during this time. I pray that God will wrap his loving arms around each of you and comfort you during this most difficult time.

To all my brothers and sisters, please remember the fallen officers we have lost. Remember the men and women who died trying to make this world a safer and better place for us all to live in. Please pray for this officer's family and friends as they struggle with this tragedy.
May God be with you every day, please remember, we are a part of the largest family in the world and when one hurts we all hurt.

Though our badges and uniforms may be different, our mission is the same. Rest in peace with our other fallen Brothers and Sisters. We will continue the fight in your honor.

To the family of Officer Sloan I send my deepest and most sincere condolences. I heard of the tragedy when I arrived for shift today when one of my personnel who graduated from the Police Academy with Officer Sloan told me. He was obviously grief stricken as are we all. All of you are in our prayers tonight. God Bless the family and the other Officers of the St. Louis PD.

I am only 19 years old, but I plan on becoming an officer the day I turn 21. My heart goes out to the families of any officers that die in the line of duty and make the ultimate sacrifice like he did here. It really makes me sad when stuff like this happens to Police Officers.

REFLECTION
Here, I stand again, as the casket of a fallen brother draped with the American flag makes
its way past the tear filled eye's of the officer(s) & families left to deal with the pain of
life without a father, husband, friend, & brother.

I watch as a sea of car's, lights rotating/flashing in a show of unity for a friend who paid
the ultimate sacrifice. I watch as civilians stand to the side of the road, praying & paying
respect as the procession passes.

I listen as officer(s) fire their weapons in a 21 gun salute, and watch as the family, and
other officers jump, as this reminds them of the last sound heard by our fallen brother.

At last, as tears stream down the faces of the mourners at the grave, we watch as the officer(s)
are laid to rest, and say our final farewells to him our brother

I reflect, and remember:
All gave some
And some gave all
Some stood through
For the red, white and blue
And some had to fall
And if you ever think of me
Think of all your liberties
And recall
Some gave all. (unknown writer)
Bless the family and friends of Officer Nick Sloan
