Prayer of protection for police officers

God bless our police officers

So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. – Isaiah 41:10

God bless our police officers during these complicated times! 

We thank You for the many *incredibly brave* police men and women, who devote their lives to serving others and would never think of profiling someone based on their race or covering for another officer’s abusive behavior.

Today, we ask You to shine a special blessing on all these honorable men and women in uniform, whose hearts are in the right place. Where would we be without these heroes working behind the scenes to make our communities safer?

God, You have the deepest understanding of the tremendous pressure they are under every day, while dealing with the most dysfunctional people in our society.

Only You know how much harder their jobs are becoming, with this increase in hatred directed at them.

Please shower them with an outpouring of grace to help them through these difficult times.

Fill them with Your perfect peace, so they can stay calm and think clearly in dangerous situations.

Guide them with Your love, so they can perform their duties well, while showing Your compassion to everyone they meet.

Shine Your power through them in a way that eases tension and commands respect in the most peaceful ways possible.

Create a barrier of protection around them, which is impenetrable by anyone, who wishes to harm them. 

Guard them from being falsely accused of corruption, due to the actions of other officers.

Give them the grace to forgive everyone who is making their job more difficult during these troubled times.

Protect their hearts from temptation to become fearful and resentful.

Show them how to grow spiritually by turning to You for strength and guidance.

Help them to feel appreciated for all the good work that they do.

Surround them with all the love and support they need to keep their chins up, as they process the emotional toll of the job.

Work powerfully through them to create a greater manifestation of Divine Justice here on earth.

Protect their families from worrying about them.
