What a senseless loss of truly valuable life! I pray that his wife and children are comforted by the Lord and those around them. I also pray that people would watch and not be so self centered. Its so selfish to (even accidently) take a life because you were more concerned about your phone, coffee, make up or whatever.

A Prayer for Lieutenant Christopher Robateau:

Lord God, I boldly and humbly come before Your throne in sincere faithful and fervent prayer as we remember in this moment our Brother-in-Blue, Lieutenant Christopher Robateau, of the Jersey City, New Jersey Police Department, 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 community and 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. Amen.
