Police Officer's Prayer to St. Michael

 

Saint Michael, heaven's glorious commissioner of police,
who once so neatly and successfully cleared God's premises of all its undesirables, look with kindly and professional eyes on your earthly force.

Give us cool heads, stout hearts, and uncanny flair for
 investigation and wise judgement.  Make us the terror of burglars, the friend of children and law-abiding citizens, kind to strangers, polite to bores, strict with law-breakers and impervious to temptations.

You know, Saint Michael, from your own experiences with the devil that the police officer's lot on earth is not always a happy one; but your sense of duty that so pleased God, your hard knocks that so surprised the devil, and your angelic self-control give us inspiration.

 And when we lay down our night sticks, enroll us in your
 heavenly force, where we will be as proud to guard the   
 throne of God as we have been to guard the city of all
 the people.   

 

Amen

This section is dedicated to Police Service Dogs who sacrificed the most, who gave their last measure of devotion to their handlers, agencies and those they served.  From all of us at Sheepdog Guardian Consulting, we thank you for your sacrifice and service. 

May they rest in peace.

 

Oh almighty God, whose great power and eternal wisdom

embraces the universe, watch over my handler while I sleep.

Protect my handler from harm while I am unable to do so.

I pray, help keep our streets and homes safe while my

handler and I rest. I ask for your loving care because my

handler's duty is dangerous. Grant my handler your

unending strength and courage in our daily assignments.

 

Dear God, protect my brave handler, grant your almighty

protection, unite my handler safely with the family after the

tour of duty has ended. I ask nothing for myself.

Amen

May you find peace.

God our strength and our redeemer: you do not leave us in this life nor abandon us in death. Hear our prayer for those in despair, when days are full of darkness and the future empty of hope. Renew in them your sustaining strength for we believe that there is nothing in all creation that can separate us from your love in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Amen.
