Policeman's Prayer
When I start my tour of duty God
 wherever crime may be,
As I walk the darkened streets alone,
 let me be close to Thee.
Please give me understanding
 with both the young and old.
 until their story's told.
Let me never make a judgement
 in a rash or callous way,
 but let me hold my patience,
let each man have his say.
 Lord, if some dark and dreary night,
I must give up my life.
 Lord, with your understanding love,
protect my children and wife.
                       Another Police Officer's Prayer
                 Oh Almighty God, whose great power and eternal
                              wisdom embraces
                                 the universe.
                 Watch over all policemen and Law enforcement
                  Father in Heaven please give them the strengh,
                           courage and perseverance
                 to endure the unjust condemnation, danger, and
                                physical abuse
                      to which they are at times subjected.
                       We recommend them to your loving
                      care because their duty is dangerous.
                      Dear God, grant these brave men your
                             almighty protection.
                      Unite them safely with their families
                             after duty has ended.
                    On any high-risk call, I will survive.
                   I have succeeded on dangerous calls before.
                           I know the tactics I need.
                  I know how to make the physical moves I need.
                         I am skilled with my firearms.
                     I can stay focused on what I have to do.
                           I can take care of myself.
                    I have options for controlling any problem.
                 I can take each call step by step, without rushing.
               I can breathe deeply to control stress any time I
start feeling tense.
I can keep any situation within limits I can handle.
 I can decide not to be afraid.
 I can defeat any threat against me.
                 I can use deadly force to save my life or the life
of  someone eles.
               I can survive and keep going, no matter what, even if
I am hit.
