“Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.

Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth.

Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.

Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy.

Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.

Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.

Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

“Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.

Prayer for our Police Officers:  Your words are true, and Your blessings pure, so pure no person can explain; for that I give thanks to You Lord. I give thanks because, if You can be defined, then You would be just like man, always changing like the tides.  You God, are righteous, faithful, just, true, and good.

Help us to keep believing in Your Goodness when the sun sets on our brothers and sisters in the force.Those who go out day and night to protect and serve communities that hate them because of their uniform. Give them the desires of Your heart, give them Your love for those who persecute and say all kinds of evil against them. Give them the strength to keep moving forward, provide for the families who were left behind; comfort them as they mourn the loss of their spouse, father, mother, son, daughter, sister, brother and friend. May they see the prize that is set before them.Thank You Lord for the communities that are standing beside them.

May Your Light expose the darkened hearts who claim to be Your children, yet they wave banners of hatred,  and initiate violence. Bring them to the Cross of Christ Jesus, and remind them who He, Your Only Begotten Son died for (John 3:16). Put a hedge of protection around them and their families in Jesus Name, amen
