Friday, June 17: National (US) Day of Prayer for Law Enforcement Officers

June 16, 2011

We’d like to invite you to participate in the National Day of Prayer for Law Enforcement Officers on Friday, June 17. To date (June 7), 80 law enforcement officers have been killed in the line of duty in this country in 2011. That means there are 80 sets of families, friends, and coworkers who have been left in grief and sadness. To honor these heroes, we are asking people of all faiths and all walks of life to come together and pray for the officers still working the streets.

As law enforcement family members, we pray every day that our officers return home safely. We cry at the news of another fallen officer. And, we reach out to the law enforcement community around us for support and reassurance. Now we are asking the community around us to do the same. Please make a commitment to support your law enforcement officers and their families. Please set aside some time on Friday, June 17 to stand united in prayer for our men and women in blue. Please spread word of this campaign to your family, friends, coworkers, and places of worship.

If you can, schedule a time to come together at your city hall, a local park, or your place of worship and pray together. Raise your voice to lift up our heroes in prayer. Give your time to help strengthen the law enforcement community and ask that each officers comes home safely each day. Show our officers that you appreciate the sacrifices they make to protect and serve you and your family. [original post]
