Heavenly Father, the violent death of Detective Stephen Arnold, of the Jefferson Parish LA Sheriff’s Office, in the Line-of-Duty, has filled our Law Enforcement family’s eyes with tears and our hearts with sorrow. We are distressed by the mysteries of Your Providence. As Your child we want so much to say, “Not my will, but Your will be done,” but at times we find it difficult to do. Forgive us and help us. We pray by Your Holy Spirit, to accept Your ways as always best. Apply to these wounded hearts the healing touch of Your precious promises, and let them soon experience its power. Teach us not to mourn as those who have no hope. Wipe away the tears from our eyes that we may be able to see through the mist, beyond death and the grave, to the Resurrection and Life assured by the glorious victory of our Savior Jesus Christ over death and the grave. May the passing of Detective Stephen Arnold remind us that we, too, are but pilgrims and strangers on earth. Grant us the grace to love less and less the things that are material and temporal, and to love more and more the things that are spiritual and eternal. Teach us to number our days and to apply our heart to the wisdom taught by Jesus Christ, that He is the Way and the Truth and the Life, and that no one comes to You, Father God, but by Him. In the Holy Name of Your Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, we pray. Amen.

During His three (3) year ministry, the Lord Jesus Christ proclaimed: “The greatest love is shown when a person lays down his life for his friends.” [John 15:13 TLB]
