Policeman's Prayer

Recommended Posts



When I start my tour of duty God,

Wherever crime may be,

as I walk the darkened streets alone,

Let me be close to thee.


Please give me understanding with both the young and old.

Let me listen with attention until their story's told.

Let me never make a judgment in a rash or callous way,

but let me hold my patience let each man have his say.


Lord if some dark and dreary night,

I must give my life,

Lord, with your everlasting love

protect my children and my wife.


I just happened to find this poem recently in a little devotional book. With all the Dallas and now Baton Rouge shootings, I feel this poem sympathizes with the police and the struggles they are enduring currently.
