Wednesday Day 7
Pray for law enforcement officers
For rulers are not a terror to good conduct, but to bad. Do you wish to have no fear of the authority? Then do what is good, and you will receive its approval; for it is God’s servant for your good. But if you do what is wrong, you should be afraid, for the authority does not bear the sword in vain! It is the servant of God to execute wrath on the wrongdoer. Therefore, one must be subject, not only because of wrath but also because of conscience.
Today we pray for our local law enforcement. We recognize that the police and sheriff departments provide a much needed service in protecting our community. They put their lives on the line every day. So let us pray for their protection as they work for the well-being and justice for everyone in our community.
Write out your thoughts, prayers, and actions that you have for today’s prayer topic.
