A Police Officer’s Prayer

Lord I ask you to be with me in a very special way,

As I face the challenges that come my way each day.

Please give to me compassion for the innocent I see,

Help me to protect and serve those who depend on me.

When duty calls to danger I will rely on you,

To give me strength and courage and help me make it through.

And when my shift is over, thankful I will be

That you have been the unseen guest walking next to me.

In Remembrance of Officer Raymond Eugene Cooper

Killed in the line of Duty January 15, 1978
