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
