Every morning I go to my knees. During that time I pray Psalm 91 over all LEO’s and this prayer also:

“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, loving family, friends, neighbors and caring people to comfort them. Ease their pain. Help them to mourn well. In Jesus' name and for Your Glory, Amen.”

I know that God sends those angels to watch over our officers. Sometimes to protect them and sometimes to whisk our officers into His presence.

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.

I have lifted your family to God every morning for over six years. I pray that Chris's life and death will bring glory to His name.

Trust those prayers. God is with you; He knows and will ease your pain.

Our faith helps us to see beyond the grave.

I first had interactions with Chris years ago in DC. Then, we were reunited to work together when he came up to PA. He and I met once a week to conduct our duties as representatives of our respective agency. The guy was a solid dude. He was always professional, and upbeat, he would always ask you "how are you doing? and be genuinely interested in the answer. Chris was a problem solver. As is often the case, there's usually some document discrepancies or some communication issues when two agencies work together, he never let that deter him. And I would spend time solving a problem, rather than giving up on it. He was always happy to find a resolution. He was all about carrying out his job in a professional manor, with integrity. He would always have your back, and he was a cop's cop. He and I probably handled hundreds, if not thousands of detainees together, and I never saw him treat a single one of them has anything less than a grown human man.

The profession lost a good guy. A family lost a husband, father, son, uncle. He'll be missed in a lot of aspects.

I had the great honor of meeting you several months ago at a tactical training class held in Fort Indian Town gap, PA. Chris you were a natural born leader that everyone looked up to that week and I truly enjoyed the B.S. sessions we had at Moose' S LZ. You truly made a lasting impression with me and I am still in shock to hear this news. Rest easy sheepdog and watch over us down here as I know you will.

A Prayer for Deputy Marshal Christopher David Hill:

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, Deputy Marshal Christopher David Hill, of the United States Marshals Service, 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 county in which he served; and loyal to the causes which he championed in law enforcement. For Scripture says: God blesses those who work for peace for they will be called the children of God ; there is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends; I [Jesus] assure you, today you will be with me in paradise, and; God blesses those who mourn, for they will be comforted. Thus, in our life, may Deputy Marshal Christopher David Hill live on, to our great comfort, to the betterment of Your creation, and to the furthering of Your most Holy Will. Amen.

Rest in Peace brother and watch over us. We will protect and serve from here on in your memory.

I fight not for glory or fame, for they are momentary. I fight for those who can't. I fight for Justice. I fight for the oppressed and the down trodden. And if I should lose my life for these just causes, then I have no regrets, For I serve to protect the innocent. It matters not where or when, for evil knows no boundaries. Be it fire, flood, or the threat of tyranny, I will not flee. Justice is my weapon. Faith is my shield. Hope is my armor. Cry not at my passing, for it was my Honor to fight for you. Shed not tears of sorrow, But tears of joy, for now, I stand with God.

By Jon F. Hooper
