Tonight at 6 PM, there is a moment of silence for the Lakewood four. This was passed to me by the KY FOP site.
I have descided to expand that out a little bit. For all you who are interrested in joining me (read that as “PLEASE JOIN ME”) at 6, I will not only be praying for Lakewood, and Pellham Alabama (Officer Philip Davis the other officer burried today), but for my state, city and county.
Ohio State Patrol (OSP)
Kentucky State Police (KSP)
Montgomery County (OH) Sherriff’s Office
Huber Heights Police Division (Where I live – substitute your local police dept.)
Miami Township Police Department (Since I work in Miami TWP)
I’ll be praying for their safety and protection from evil.
Prayer for wisdom to be able to see danger that they may have not seen otherwise. Praying that “no weapon formed against them will prosper” according to Isaiah 54:17. Prayer for wisdom and patience in diffusing high-risk situations.
Prayer for healing/protection from PTSD (PTSD is a lead contributor to officer “Line of Duty Suicides“)
And as I wrote this, another officer was killed in North Carolina. Deputy Sheriff Charlie Brown of the Martin County Sheriff’s Office in North Carolina was killed by a suspect who was walking down the street shooting a gun.
When will the violence against our officers stop?
