Heavenly Father, You are always faithful and quick to show mercy. Our Brother-in-Blue, Police Officer Charlie Cortez, of the Tulalip Tribal WA Police Department, was suddenly and violently taken from us. Come swiftly to his aid, have mercy on him, and comfort his family, friends, and colleagues by the power and protection of the Cross. God Bless the Blue! I ask this through Christ Jesus. Amen.
