A Prayer for Deputy Chief Sander Cohen:

Lord God of mercy, peace, and love, we remember before Your throne in this moment our Brother-in-Blue, Deputy Chief Sander Cohen, of the Maryland Office of the State Fire Marshal, who sacrificed his life in the Line-of-Duty. We recall with gratitude and respect all that he stood for in this life. Help us to live in the companionship of his spirit. May we be kind to the family, friends, and colleagues he loved; devoted to the state in which he served; and loyal to the causes which he championed in law enforcement. Thus, in our life, may he live on, to our great comfort, to the betterment of Your creation, and to the furthering of Your most Holy Will.

Heavenly Father, be with the family, friends, and colleagues of this fallen hero. Comfort them and give them Your strength. 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.

Almighty God, we ask that you grant us a deeper appreciation of the efforts of all law enforcement officers who serve our communities, states, and country daily. For their dedication to our security, order and peace, we give You thanks. May they be encouraged in their work which benefits us all. Help us to grow that spirit of community that will make their job both easy and fulfilling. And now may our fellowship together and Your blessing today bring a renewed sense of joy to each of us. Amen.

“Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God." [Matthew 5:9 ESV]

"Greater love has no one than this that someone lay down his life for his friends." [John 15:13 ESV]
