Reflections for Detective First Grade Matthew A. Perlungher

Lord Jesus, as we watch America’s Peace Officers succumb to the wicked and evil in this world, it becomes difficult for us to pick up and move forward. Our communities are on the brink of exploding with tension. In light of the peace officers who are no longer with us, I pray for endurance for our communities and law enforcement agencies. Carry us through this time of strife, that through our struggles, our bonds may grow even more unbreakable. In Your mighty and holy name, I pray. Amen.

“And I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?” Then I said, “Here am I! Send me.” [Isaiah 6:8 ESV]

Our interactions were limited but it was always an a great day when we crossed paths. When I was a young kid in the Explorer program, you once said to me “don’t sir me, I’m just a cop”. That humble line has stuck with me and I’ve probably used it a thousand times.

Miss you brother.
