I want to lift up not only Officer Melton but all the officers who have been in the recent headlines--the slain and fallen. All lives are important. ALL. Father, something is being lost here in all this misunderstanding and evil. I pray that others directly involved who are more knowledgeable than I am will put in place more safety protocols for the officers that somehow and someway will respect all lives: all races and people with disabilities. I do not know the answers, but the one thing I can do is to love and respect all as much as possible, wherever possible. I lift up those civilians who have lost their lives--send peace to their families, give them peace and hope and heart for you God. You know the answers. You know the motive of each heart and soul. All those who are slain are now with you, and all of them leave behind any worry, fear, or prejudice. They are all with you in your hands. In Jesus name. Amen.

Avenue of the Fallen

Standing at attention in their class “A“uniforms, badges gleaming and shoes like glass, are your brothers and sisters of Law Enforcement. All of whom have previously paid the ultimate price.
Today, like many others, they welcome you to this wonderful place.
As you march down the Avenue of the Fallen, all eyes focus on you as if to say “it’s OK, you’re with your eternal partners.”
A salute is followed and a tear can be seen on so many faces.
Welcome, you served well.
Now come join us in the ranks, another is coming home.

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.

Every morning I go to my knees. During that time I pray, “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, family and loving, caring people to comfort them. Ease their pain. Help them to mourn well. In Jesus' name, Amen”

I have lifted you and your family to God every morning for the past four years. Feel those prayers. God is with you, He knows and will ease your pain.

Faith helps us see beyond the grave.

Captain, may God accept you into his Kingdom as you have served your community and your men well. You responded into the field to search for someone who shot at your men and paid for it with your life attempting to bring these people to justice. We honor you my brother and your memory will live on forever.
