Lord God, our hearts and prayers go out to the Nebraska State Patrol and for the family, friends, and colleagues of Trooper Jerry L. Smith, of the Nebraska State Patrol, who was killed in the Line-of-Duty on Thursday, June 20, 2019. Depart, dear Brother-in-Blue, out of this world into the arms of the Father who created you, into the arms of the Son who redeemed you, and into the arms of the Spirit who made you whole. “You have fought the good fight, you have finished the race, and you have kept the faith” [2Timothy 4:7]. Now rest easy in peace. We will take it from here. Amen.
