Policeman's Prayer

"Policeman's Prayer"

When I start my tour of duty God,
Wherever crime may be,
as I walk the darkened streets alone,
Let me be close to thee.

Please give me understanding with both the young and old.
Let me listen with attention until their story's told.
Let me never make a judgment in a rash or callous way,
but let me hold my patience let each man have his say.

Lord if some dark and dreary night,
I must give my life,
Lord, with your everlasting love
protect my children and my wife.

  1. I love that.........thanks for sharing.

  2. I just love that prayer!  I have the EMS and Firefighter\'s prayers
    but I don\'t think I\'d read the Policeman\'s prayer.  Thanks! 
    Take care and stay safe!!!!!!!

  3. We have several we say for you too, everyday.

  4. Powerful reminder of how dangerous it is to be a police officer.  THANK YOU for your willingness to be out there.
