Reflections for Deputy Sheriff Joshua James Sieman

Deputy Sheriff Sieman,
On today, the 2nd anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of Harris County. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

I was in shock when I found out about what happened brother. I will miss serving the community with you. But I know we are both Christians. I will see you again someday. I pray for healing and peace to be provided to your family, in Jesus name I pray, amen. Thank you for being there to back me up on calls and showing urgency and eagerness while doing it. Lord knows how many times you've came to my aid when I was fighting with a suspect and trying to get him into handcuffs. You service will never be forgotten.

I saw Officer Joshua Sieman's grave today when I was searching the cemetery for the grave of a long-time friend who died of Covid in Sept 2021. When I saw Joshua's grave, I felt compelled to do some research to find out about him. I see that he was married with a child. I'm so sorry for their loss. My friend leaves a wife and 3 high school kids as well. May the families receive God's blessings in the future, and help in recovery from this tremendous loss. Thank you Joshua for your sacrifice in keeping our communities safe.

Most merciful God, You hold each of us dear to Your heart. Hold all our nation’s law enforcement officers and their families, who are afflicted or affected by the COVID-19 Virus, in Your loving arms and tenderly draw them into Your life, together with all others who are living with the COVID-19 Virus. Assure them that they are not alone, and give them courage and faith for all that is to come. Strengthen those who care for them and treat them, and guide those who do research. Forgive those who have judged harshly, and enlighten those who live in prejudice or fear. Nourish those who have lost sight of You, and heal the spirits of those who are broken. We pray this in the mighty and holy name of Jesus Christ, who suffered and died, and then rose from the dead to lead us into new life, now and forever. In Christ Jesus, I pray. Amen.

“Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons (children) of God.” [Matthew 5:9]
