Greetings in the Name of Jesus Christ

For this week’s greeting, I thought it would be nice if we could all pray this prayer together. The power of our praying together on Sunday morning is awesome, and something I am sure we all miss. Pray this prayer daily and thank God for our church and church family as well as for whom the prayer is written, our law enforcement officers who are still working diligently in this time of quarantine, keeping all of us safe:

We thank you, O Lord, for the women and men in law enforcement, for their willingness to answer the call to protect and serve, and for their dedication to the safety, well-being, and protection of others.  Send your holy angels to stand guard and keep watch over them. May their names be always on the lips of your saints in prayer.

Defend them day by day with your heavenly grace; strengthen them in their trials and temptations; fill them with wisdom for the decisions they face; give them courage to handle the perils which beset them; and grant them a sense of your abiding presence wherever they may be.

Keep them and their families safe and healthy. Grant them times of rest and renewal. Make them to lie down in green pastures and lead them by still waters. 

Bless them and keep them, let your face shine upon them, be gracious to them, lift up your countenance upon them, and give them peace. All this we ask in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Peace and safety to you in these trying times,

Pastor Lou Aita
