The salvation of the righteous comes from the Lord;
he is their stronghold in time of trouble.
The Lord helps them and delivers them;
he delivers them from the wicked and saves them,
because they take refuge in him.

A Prayer for Police Officer Eric Joering:

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, Police Officer Anthony Morelli, of the Westerville, Ohio Division of Police, 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. 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 Police Officer Eric Joering live on, to our great comfort, to the betterment of Your creation, and to the furthering of Your most Holy Will. Amen.

Two brave police officers both shot and killed in the line of duty. A very sad time for the community of Westerville, OH as it mourns the loss of two officers who lost their lives in a shootout. They will be missed by everybody. It will be a sad Valentine's Day for the families of both officers as they too will mourn their loss.
