And since it’s Sunday, a prayer from my Policeman’s Bible provided by Dan Lovin:
Our Father who art in Heaven
In a few minutes I will assume my daily beat. Facing the unknown, but being closer to Thee than ever before
Hallowed be Thy name
Even in the face of death and crime, Thou art everywhere to guide me. I will fear no evil. Thy rod and Thy staff comfort me.
Thy will be done
Thy will, not mine shall be done. Do not let me be selfish. O Lord, if you choose to take me, let me die as a man in order that another may live.
On Earth as it is in Heaven
Let me be a guide here on Earth to those who are misguided and lost. Help me to hlep those who are in need of help in order that we all may be worthy of Thy kingdom in Heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread
Especially those who live in poverty and misery
And forgive us our trespasses
I am a sinner. O Lord, let me never forget that I am no better than my fellow men. Let me never forget that by Thy grace I am on the right side of the law.
As we forgive those who trespass against us
Forgive those that despise me and the uniform which represents law and order. Forgive them for they do not know better. I have forgiven them.
Lead us not into temptation
Make me strong for I am only human. Deliver me from hate and jealousy and from wanting something I should not have in in your eyes.
For thine is the kingdom and power and the glory
Let me be no judge or jury. Let me be impartial. Let me be just and fair.
Forever and ever, Amen
