Rest in Peace brother and watch over us. We will protect and serve from here on in your honor.

I fight not for glory or fame, for they are momentary. I fight for those who can't. I fight for Justice. I fight for the oppressed and the down trodden. And if I should lose my life for these just causes, then I have no regrets, For I serve to protect the innocent. It matters not where or when, for evil knows no boundaries. Be it fire, flood, or the threat of tyranny, I will not flee. Justice is my weapon. Faith is my shield. Hope is my armor. Cry not at my passing, for it was my Honor to fight for you. Shed not tears of sorrow, but tears of joy, for now, I stand with God.

Lord God, You are the Light, the Love, and the Life. The ultimate example has been shown to us through the work and ministry of Your Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. Yet, in daily life, You raise civil servants in our nation who also lay down their lives for the protection of others. We magnify You, Lord God, for continuing to show us what it looks like to serve and suffer in a redemptive manner. Help us to put into practice the example of America’s Fallen Peace Officers in our own lives, so that their sacrifices may not be in vain. In Christ Jesus, Your Son, I pray. Amen.

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

“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]
