Our Father in Heaven, our hearts are broken and our spirits weak as we mourn with the men and women of the Calgary Police Service in the on-duty murder of Sgt. Andrew Harnett. O’ Lord, there are times when we don’t know how to pray to You for the grief is so great. Nonetheless Lord, You know the hearts of those within the law enforcement family and hear our groans of pain at the loss of one of Your servant peacemakers. So Lord, we lift up the men and women of the Calgary Police Service before your Throne of Grace and ask for Your mercies to touch their hearts with Your hands of loving kindness. May Your grace uphold those whose hearts are broken at the loss of a dear friend and co-worker. May Your mercies and amazing grace especially settle upon the family of Sgt. Harnett. May they intimately sense Your presence around them at all times knowing that it is You who will be carrying them through this very difficult time of loss. We thank You, Lord, that Your Word clearly says that the law enforcement officer does not carry his sword (or firearm) in vain. As we know this traumatic event has created great emotional trauma in the hearts of many law enforcement officers, we ask for Your mercies and comfort to be poured out upon them and may You preserve their hearts and minds from enduring any long-term traumatic fallout. Grant grace to the many first responders, medics and doctors who were involved in the life-saving efforts and treatment of Sgt. Harnett. And in the coming days as preparations will be made to say farewell to him, may many law enforcement officers be drawn close to You where they may examine their hearts and reveal their need for a personal relationship with You Lord, our Forgiver and Savior. Grant hope and comfort in the hearts of those grieving ever so greatly. Wrap your Arms around every member of the Calgary Police Service and carry them through difficult days ahead as they prepare a final farewell to Sgt. Harnett. May you fill the investigators with wisdom as they piece together the details of this horrific incident and grant them wisdom to locate and arrest these two suspects. May many know Your love personally and receive You as their Savior and Friend, in the name of Jesus Christ we pray, Amen.
