Our Merciful Father, We lift before your Throne of Grace a wounded Blount County Deputy Sheriff whose condition is unknown.  We are so thankful he was quickly taken to a hospital where he is undergoing immediate treatment and ask for your protecting hand to be upon him and to spare his life.  May You continue to raise up the correct medical specialists in order to diagnose and apply the correct treatment to bring about a full recovery.  We are also so grateful to You, Lord, that no other officers were injured and that a suspect has been arrested.  Lord, we also lift up the family of this wounded deputy (and all of the other deputies who were involved in this incident) into Your Gracious Presence.  As we know many deputies and co-workers are dealing with the emotional realities of this near-death incident, we ask for your grace, mercy, peace and love settle upon their hearts and minds.  May You grant the investigators supernatural wisdom and insight to gather the facts.   May your peace that passes all understanding sustain every member of the Blount County Sheriff’s Department and may your Holy Spirit settle upon their minds and bring them peace in the middle of this storm. May your healing touch continue to be upon this wounded deputy and restore him to full health.  Finally Lord, may Your Amazing Grace touch the entire Blount County Sheriff’s Department.  May your grace preserve them emotionally and spiritually and keep them from enduring any future emotional trauma that can result from these highly stressful incidents.  May the love of Jesus Christ be revealed to every officer and family member.   May they know that Jesus said, “Come to me all who are weary and heavy laden and I will give you rest.” May they know, that although they had just walked through the valley of the shadow of death, You will forever be with them—for we know You will never leave us nor forsake us.  May many have an opportunity to know Your amazing grace, peace and forgiveness and may many receive You into their hearts as their Savior and Lord, this we ask in the precious name of Jesus, Amen.
