A Prayer for Our Law Enforcement Officers

Y'all, the state of our nation right now is so very scary. 
Shooting after shooting of our brave law enforcement officers
in the past few weeks is truly horrific and heartbreaking.
It seems like it just get worse each day and turning on the news is terrifying and awful. 

With every new shooting I just keep praying more 
(Jesus, come quickly!)
and asking God to protect the brave men and women 
who put their lives on the line each and every single day for you and for me.  

I can't imagine the fear and anxiety that law enforcement officers (and their families)
 must feel as they walk out the door of their homes each day. 
Their job is already normally dangerous most of the time as it is-
 but now, they have to be on guard and worried 100% of the time
that the people they are trying to protect and serve
might actually be trying to harm them!

I decided to make a little printable to print out and keep with me to hand out
to any and every law enforcement officer that crosses my path. 
One side has a thank you note and one side has a prayer. 
 I want them to know how much I appreciate the job that they do 
and that I am praying fervently for them.


I printed them front and back and left a little spot at the bottom of one side 
to write a personal note and sign it. 
Please feel free to print your own and share with others. 

You can print out your own PDF copy HERE.
The folder includes a single copy if you want to print in full page
and one formatted for printing four per page front and back. 
To print four per page just select multiple and print 
front and back from your list of options. 

Let's bless our brave law enforcement officers and
 let them know we love and are praying for them!

Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
John 15:13

  5. Thanks so very much for this, and providing the printables! Earlier today, I was thinking of a way that our church could use this opportunity to be an encouragement to our local police departments. This will help! Thanks again--
