Faithful Unto Death | Eternal Rest | Salute

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 seven years. I pray that LJ's life and death will bring glory to God.

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

Our faith helps us to see beyond the grave.

Deputy Sheriff Joshua LJ Ryer, thank you for giving the ultimate sacrifice so that others may live. I thank you for serving your community and country. I will have you in my thoughts as well as all past officers who have laid their life down for us. I get goosebumps when I see an officer has been killed. This needs to stop being a weekly occurance. I hope one day your family finds peace and that they do not morn you, but celebrate your existance and accomplishments that you have achieved and your time that you gave to your community, in the such short amount of time you were with us.
