A Prayer for Police Officer Kathleen O’Connor-Funigiello:

Lord God of mercy, peace, and love, we remember before Your throne in this moment our Sister-in-Blue, Police Officer Kathleen O’Connor-Funigiello, of the New Rochelle, New York Police Department, who sacrificed her life in the Line-of-Duty. We recall with gratitude and respect all that she stood for in this life. Help us to live in the companionship of her spirit. May we be kind to the family, friends, and colleagues she loved; devoted to the community and state in which she served; and loyal to the causes which she championed in law enforcement. Thus, in our life, may she 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 [children] of God." [Matthew 5:9 ESV]

Prayers for solace and strength for your family, your agency, and all who call you beloved. Your heroism and service is honored today. Your memory will live in the hearts of those who loved you and in your law enforcement community and you will continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer who was murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Time never diminishes respect. Your memory will always be honored and revered as a grateful nation will never forget its 9/11 heroes. Rest In Peace
