A Prayer for Police Officer Jaimie Cox:

Heavenly Father, we are grateful for the life of Police Officer Jaimie Cox, of the Rockford, Illinois Police Department, who fell in the Line-of-Duty. He died serving us. Help us never to forget him. Help us celebrate his life and honor his sacrifice. Be with the family, friends, and colleagues of this fallen hero. Comfort them and give them your strength, for Scripture says, “Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.” [Matthew 5:4 ESV] 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. For the Scriptures say, “Truly, I say to you, today you will be with me in Paradise. [Luke 23:43 ESV] The dust returns to the earth as it was, and the spirit returns to God who gave it. [Ecclesiastes 12:7 ESV] He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.” [Revelation 21:4 ESV]

As for the citizens of the Rockford, Illinois, help them to faithfully equip their law enforcement officers with the best tools to protect their county and state. May their training be adequate to the task. Help the citizens of the Rockford, Illinois to remember to pay their law enforcement officers fairly and treat them with respect. Help the citizens of Rockford, Illinois to obey the law and treat each other with dignity so as not to add to the burden of crime and pain to their community.

The time for mourning will soon pass. We have now remembered and celebrated the life lost in this great tragedy. As the family, friends, and colleagues of this fallen hero go forward, they must celebrate the good things in their lives; and to celebrate life itself!

Finally, Lord God, we pray for the families, friends, and colleagues of all the law enforcement officers who have fallen in the line-of-duty and we thank you for their sacrifices. Bless the lives of their families, friends, and colleagues so they might find healing. Help their law enforcement organizations support the families of these fallen heroes. Even though their deaths might have been senseless, make something good come out of these situations so that their law enforcement organizations and the communities in which they lived and served might be stronger because of their lives and their deaths. We pray all this in the mighty and holy name of Jesus. Amen.
