Pray for our Police

Just read a facebook post by my daughter. She was stopped in a parking lot by a police office that saw a Christian message she has on the rear window of her car. He asked her to pray for him.

There are two things we can learn here. First, when you are bold in your faith God will use you. Putting an overtly Christian message on you vehicle can set you up for ridicule but also lets God use you to reach others. Second, it takes nerve to ask a stranger to pray for us. But none of us can ever have enough prayer. Police officers are supposed to be strong and brave and never show weakness. This office showed strength by letting a stranger know he too needs Gods help.

Out police officers put their lives on the line everyday protecting us. They see people at their worst. The are subject to constant abuse and it seems like they can never do anything right.

So take a moment to lift up a police officer, possibly one you know or see regularly. If you don’t know a police office then just pray for all the officers in your community.  And why not the next time you see an officer on the street, let them know you are praying for them.

Have a blessed day,

The name of this blog is taken from 1 Peter 3:13 - “always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect, keeping a clear conscience. This verse became special to me over ten years ago when I was asked to teach an adult Sunday school class on Christian apologetics. This interest grew over the years to the point that I took some graduate level classes in apologetics. I think the best way to be prepared to give and answer to everyone who asks is to know scripture. It is my hope that through these short devotionals the reader will become more familiar with each verse. I have tried when possible to make them personal hoping in some small way to show that God’s word written over two thousand years ago is still relevant today. In the writing of these short devotionals I have been able to better understand how God’s word impacts my life. It is my hope that you too will come closer to our Lord Jesus and develop a closer relationship with Him. Finally, if the reader finds anything in conflict with scripture please let me know. God’s word is the final authority always overrules anything I might write. David
