A Policeman's Prayer

Lord, I ask for courage;Courage to face and conquer my own fears...Courage to take me where others will not go.
I ask for strength;Strength of body to protect others...Strength of spirit to lead others.
I ask dedication;Dedication to my job to do it well...Dedication to my community to keep it safe.
Give me, Lord, concern;For all those who trust me...And compassion for those who need me
And, please, Lord, through it all; be at my side.
