The true measure of a person
is not found in the
might of their arm,
their wealth
or their power –
it is found in the strength
of their character.

There is no greater testimony to
ones character, than ones
willingness to sacrifice all,
in the noble quest of
providing protection to all
whom they serve.

Heavenly Father, we pray for the families of all Law Enforcement Officers who have been killed in the Line-of-Duty and we thank You for their sacrifices. Bless the lives of their families, friends, and comrades so that they might find healing. O Lord, please help the law enforcement agencies support the families of their fallen. Even though their deaths might have been senseless, make something good come out of these situations so that the law enforcement agencies and communities in which they served and lived might be stronger because of their lives and sacrificial deaths. In Christ Jesus, we pray. Amen.
