Policeman’s Prayer

Lord, I ask for courage;
Courage to face and conquer my own fears…
Courage to take me where others will not go.
I ask for strength;
Strength of body to protect others…
Strength of spirit to lead others.

I ask dedication;
Dedication to my job to do it well…
Dedication to my community to keep it safe.
Give me, Lord, concern;
For all those who trust me…
And compassion for those who need me
And, please, Lord, through it all; be at my side. 

Policewoman’s Prayer

Oh Lord,
I am a woman not a man.
I am a Mother not a Dad.
I am a wife with responsibilities that men have never had.
I need understanding from all my peers
That I am not here to take a man’s job,
I am doing it because I can.
I took the job to enforce the Law,
To do my part in the fight to have justice for ALL,
To be professional,
To make a career,
Great Lord, help me when they say I should not be here.
I work long hours,
Face all the dangers and do the same things
That they do in law enforcement matters.
Grant me respect like the others,
For I am one,
Set aside for every other one.
Lord, being a policewoman is the most
Challenging job I have ever done.
Be with me on my daily run,
As you are with us all.
Amen

A Fireman’s Prayer

When I am called to duty, God,
Whenever flames may rage;
Give me strength to save some life,
Whatever be its age.

Help me embrace a little child
Before it is too late
Or save an older person
From the horror of that fate.
Enable me to be alert
And hear the weakest shout,
And quickly and efficiently
To put the fire out.
I want to fill my calling
And to give the best in me
To guard my every neighbor
And protect his property.

And if, according to my fate,
I am to lose my life,
Please bless with your protecting
My children and my wife.
