O’ Merciful Lord, we are so grateful for Your wonderful mercies upon this wounded Portland Police Officer and are so thankful that You spared his life. As the news reports he is in stable condition with a wound to his hip, we ask you to grant the doctor’s wisdom and insight to continue to accurately diagnose and treat his wound and restore him to full health. We are thankful he has been released from the hospital and continue to lift up this officer before Your Throne of Grace. May You wrap Your loving arms around him as he recovers from this near-death experience. We are so thankful for the strength, grace and might You gave to the law enforcement officers at that scene in which the suspect lost his life. May Your peace that passes all understanding sustain this officer and may he be drawn ever close to Your side for the continuing comfort of Your Holy Spirit as he recovers. May Your mercy, grace, love and everlasting comfort also settle upon the family of this officer as they cope with this near-tragedy. May Your grace additionally touch every member of the Portland Police Department and allied law enforcement agencies as they rally around to support their wounded comrade and his family. As we know there were multiple law enforcement officers involved in this incident, may every law enforcement officer know that You ordained their job as a peacemaker to protect and serve their community wherever they may be. May Your word as follow bring comfort to these officers involved in that incident, “Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” And, “And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather fear him who can destroy both soul and body in hell.” Lord, through this near-death encounter, may many law enforcement officers come to recognize their need to draw near to You for You will then draw near to them. May Your words speak to the hearts of those in need, “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.” Because of Your peace and grace, may many come to receive Your forgiveness and receive Your Son as their Savior and Lord, in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
