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,
