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.

Psalm 116:13-19
13 I will lift up the cup of salvation
and call on the name of the LORD.
14 I will fulfill my vows to the LORD
in the presence of all his people.
15 Precious in the sight of the LORD
is the death of his faithful servants.

16 Truly I am your servant, LORD
I serve you just as my mother did;
you have freed me from my chains.
17 I will sacrifice a thank offering to you
and call on the name of the LORD.
18 I will fulfill my vows to the LORD
in the presence of all his people,
19 in the courts of the house of the LORD—
in your midst, Jerusalem. Praise the LORD.
Isaiah 57:1-2
The righteous perish,
and no one takes it to heart;
the devout are taken away,
and no one understands
that the righteous are taken away,
to be spared from evil.

2 Those who walk uprightly
enter into peace;
they find rest as they lie in death.

Isenhour was a faithful servant to his family, friends, Law Enforcement band of blue brothers/sisters, his county , Military family likewise, and anyone who had the pleasure of sharing his company. He carried himself uprightly, giving respect while earning it. In death he will find peace with our Lord, while all that are left behind struggle to understand why one with such character was taken from us so soon.

God, filled with mercy, dwelling in the heavens' heights,
bring proper rest beneath the wings of your Lord,
amid the ranks of the holy and the pure,
illuminating like the brilliance of the skies the soul of John Thomas Eisenhour who went to his eternal place of rest.
May You who are the source of mercy shelter him beneath Your wings eternally,
and bind his soul among the living, that he may rest in peace. And let us say: Amen.
