Reflections for Sergeant James Thomas Farrell

Lord Jesus, as we watch our nation’s brave law enforcement officers succumb to the wicked and evil in this world, it becomes difficult for us to pick up and move forward. Our communities are on the brink of exploding with tension. In light of the law enforcement officers who are no longer with us, I pray for endurance for our communities and law enforcement agencies. Carry us through this time of strife, that through our struggles, our bonds may grow even more unbreakable. In Your mighty and holy name, I pray. Amen.

“And I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?” Then I said, “Here am I! Send me.” [Isaiah 6:8 ESV]

“Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.” [Psalm 23:4 ESV]

You were more than a boss Jim, you were a good friend and as we crawled over all the carnage that day 9/11 and found the crushed FDNY ladder truck we were both moved almost to tears. When I heard you had passed away I figured I was not far behind as we went everywhere together those day, but I’m still her to keep up the watch for you !!! Take care boss, I’m sure I’ll see you in the not too distant future.
