Our Merciful and gracious Lord, we are so grateful for Your wonderful mercies upon this wounded firefighter and are so thankful that You spared his life. As the news reports he is in stable condition with a wound to his arm, we ask you to grant the doctor’s wisdom and insight to accurately diagnose and treat his wound. We also lift up these two EMT’s who were also wounded. As the news report did not know their condition, we want to place them into Your healing arms and ask You, Lord, to spare their lives. May You place the correct medical specialists in their path to be able to identify their wounds and apply the correct treatment. We, therefore, lift up these firefighters and EMT’s before Your Throne of Grace and ask You to wrap Your loving arms around them as they deal with this near-death experience. May Your peace that passes all understanding sustain these first responders and may they be drawn ever close to Your side for the continuing comfort of Your Holy Spirit. May Your mercy, grace, love and everlasting comfort settle upon the families of this firefighter and both EMT’s. May Your grace additionally touch every member of the Tucson Fire Department and A.M.R. members of as they rally around to support their wounded comrades and their families. May You use this life-threatening incident as a reminder and training aid to firefighters and EMT’s across America and the world to forever be vigilant in everything they do. May you grant the investigators wisdom to investigate this incident in which a suspect was wounded by a law enforcement officer. Finally, if any firefighter or EMT in Tucson or abroad has been emotionally or spiritually challenged from the near-death encounter, 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.” Lastly Lord, even as these EMT’s and firefighter were intentionally shot, may every Tucson Firefighter and EMT know that You ordained their jobs to serve their community wherever they may be. And through this near-death encounter, may firefighters and EMT’s everywhere come to recognize their need to draw near to You for You will then draw near to them. May many come to receive Your forgiveness and receive Your Son as their Savior and Lord, in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
