Our Merciful Lord, we come with broken hearts before Your Throne of Grace to lift up the men and women of the Texas Department of Corrections as they are grieving this tragic murder of one of their own officers.  As the details of this incident are sketchy, we ask You to grant the investigators with supernatural wisdom and insight in order to investigate this heinous death and bring those to justice responsible for the murder of Your servant.  We especially want to lift up the family of Officer Johnson into Your Presence as we know they are in deep mourning over the loss of their loved one.  As we know the citizens of Texas have been hit hard with the loss of Your Peacemakers, the loss of another servant is just too much to bear.  Nonetheless, Your word is the only comfort with which we can rely upon as follows: “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.” “Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”  O’ Lord, grant peace and rest for those whose souls are in deep sorrow and mourning ever so greatly.  May You use this tragedy to point many Corrections officers and family members to the Cross of Your Son, Jesus, who is the Author of Life.  May many know Your Son in the Way, the Truth and the Life and may many know the eternal life found only in Him, in the name of Jesus we pray, Amen.
