Our Gracious Lord, we come into Your presence to lift up a wounded Oklahoma City Police officer before your Throne of Grace. Once again, we are so thankful for Your mercies and grace to have been upon this officer and several other officers in sparing their lives. As one officer was shot in the hand and torso and was saved by his Kevlar vest, we know that he still suffered blunt force traumatic injuries and therefore seek Your continued healing power to be upon this wounded peacemaker. May You grant the medical staff wisdom to treat his wounded hand and fully restore this officer to complete health. Lord, we are also so grateful for the technology of the Kevlar Vest. And as we know incidents like this can cause some deep emotional trauma both short-term and long-term to the officer, his co-workers and even his family, it is Your everlasting peace and comfort we seek to settle upon them and may Your mercies, grace and love touch their hearts and minds, and may they sense Your immediate presence comforting their spirits as You carry them through this near-death encounter. May Your grace and mercies especially extend to their families who experienced the near loss of their loved ones. Grant the family members an extraordinary touch of Your peace and grace. May You grant the investigators wisdom as they investigate this attack in which the suspect was also wounded. May Your hands of love and comfort touch the entire Oklahoma City Police Department as they rally around supporting their co-worker who almost entered eternity. May You use this near-death experience to draw many Oklahoma City officers, friends and family members ever so close to the peace provided by Your Son in whom there is everlasting life. May Your words bring comfort to those in need, “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.” And, “Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.” Finally, if any officer does not know Your Son in a personal way, may they be drawn close to His side where they can know the everlasting life found in Him because of His sacrifice on the cross. May many come to know the freedom found only in Your Son. May Your name be glorified, in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
