Words Of Encouragement For Police Officers

Prayer For Police Officers 2

Dear Police Officer,

I thank God every day for blessing our society with people like you to nip evil in the bud.

We can feel safe at home, at work, at the mall, and in the streets, thanks to you. I want you to know how grateful we are for your selfless service.

I want to encourage you to remain brave and courageous in the face of the risks and dangers that characterize your job, because the One in you is greater than the powers of darkness and evil in the world.

1 John 4:4 assures you that because of this, you have already overcome, even before the challenge arises.

Along with the Apostle Paul in Ephesians 6:20, I urge you to stay strong in the mighty power of the Lord.

God’s Word promises, in Isaiah 54:17, that no weapon can defeat you because you are a servant of the Most High God.

No weapon formed against you shall prosper, And every tongue which rises against you in judgment You shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, And their righteousness is from Me,” Says the Lord. Isaiah 54:17

While you make our society a safer place to live in, remember the perfect and peaceful Home that our Lord and Savior has reserved for His Saints.

God bless you, brave Officer.

Prayer For Police Officers

police officer prayer

Dear God,

I’m grateful for those that You have called into the selfless service of law enforcement.

I acknowledge the mess that society would be without them. Our fallen world is prone to lawlessness, chaos and disaster.

Thank You for providing faithful men and women to stand against these evils.

Lord, You know the internal and external battles they face on a daily basis. Even as our police officers risk their lives to protect us, dear God, protect them also.

Be a shield for them according to Psalm3:3. Lift up their countenances and be their comfort in the face of disheartening circumstances. 

Psalm 3:3 Bible Verse

But You, O Lord, are a shield for me, My glory and the One who lifts up my head. Psalm 3:3

Give them the courage and ability it takes to always do what is right and necessary.

As David declared in Psalm 23:4, I ask that our officers remain assured of Your presence even in the face of the gravest of dangers.

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; For You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me. Psalm 23:4

I ask that they heed Your command to be strong and courageous, confident in Your promise to be with them wherever their duty may take them, just as You assured your servant Joshua in Joshua 1:9.

Joshua 1:9 verse image

Lord, we need our dear officers to stay brave and strong in seemingly impossible situations.

Please, keep them reminded, like Paul boldly declared in Philippians 4:13, that it is in You that they possess the ability to do the impossible.

Philippians 4:13 Bible Verse 2

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13

In cases where they have to make life-and-death decisions in split seconds, Lord, may Your wisdom and courage shroud our officers.

May they respond to situations in the fear of God, rather than depend on their own wisdom.

May Your peace be with our police officers while they discharge their duties.

May You enlighten them with Your wisdom and clarity to make sound and moral decisions at all times.

In accordance with Your Word in Romans 13:4, may they be Your ministers, meting out justice and peace for all.

And Lord, I ask that as they bring order to our society, You keep their homes and families in order.

Provide for them and protect them night and day. May they be epitomes of morality and virtue.

In Jesus’ Name, I ask these things.
