Our God of Mercy, we join with the men and women of the Omaha Police Department family and lift up one of their critically wounded officers before Your Throne of Grace. As this officer is in the hospital struggling for his life, may Your presence and healing power continue to descend upon him by Your grace and mercies. O’ Lord, we know You are the Author of Life, the Bread of Life and the Way, the Truth and the Life. We thank You that You are merciful, wise, omniscient, faithful, holy and good and for those reasons, we seek Your amazing grace and the touch of the Master’s Hand to be upon this wounded officer from head to foot. May You reach inside his physical body and begin the healing process according to Your Riches and Glory in Christ Jesus. May this wounded officer and the entire Omaha Police Department and his family know Your word says, “My son, be attentive to my words; incline your ear to my sayings. Let them not escape from your sight; keep them within your heart. For they are life to those who find them, and healing to all their flesh.” Lord, we know this wounded officer is in Your hands. You know all things and You know we earnestly come before Your Throne of Grace to seek Your mercy and grace at this time of need. And if this wounded officer does not know Your love and forgiveness, we ask You to use chaplains, Godly officers and others to share Your love with him and allow him to receive You has his personal Savior and Lord. And as a manhunt is underway for the suspect, may You grant the investigators wisdom to locate and arrest him without incident. May You raise up citizens to report his location. And if the suspect tries to use his weapon on other officers, may You cause the weapon to misfire or malfunction. May You cause the suspect to be confused and guilt-ridden in order to surrender. May You surround every Omaha officer with Your hands of protection as this search is under way. May those officers who’ve been emotionally and/or spiritually challenged from this attack on one of their co-workers know, “The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit.” May they do as King David, who said, “I lift up my eyes to the hills. From where does my help come? My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth.” So Lord, may Your mercy, grace, love and comfort settle upon this wounded officers family, co-workers and friends as they rally around him. May they know Your word says, “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Lord, grant the investigators wisdom as they piece together the facts in this incident. May Your peace that passes all understanding be made real in everyone’s hearts. May You use this near-tragedy to draw all men unto Your Son in whom there is forgiveness of sins and everlasting life, in the name of Jesus we pray, Amen.
