Our first responders are on the front lines. Their world is increasingly uncertain and dangerous. What they see on a daily basis would shock most of us.It is understandable why and how some could become numb or calloused, as they often see the worst in humanity.

At the same time we see incidents where law enforcement are bypassing the citizen’s Constitutional rights. This is not good for our local areas and cities. It breeds contempt and distrust.

Consider your local police, sheriff, fire and emergency personnel. Pray as you are led in your heart.

  • That first responders be kept safe as they serve their communities.
  • For humility to behave as servants and abide by the Constitution, even as it is difficult.
  • For wisdom and discernment in all conditions and situations they confront.

Pray for yourself:

  • That you (we), the people they serve, will be respectful and dignified in our interactions.
  • Acknowledge to God any weaknesses in this area and confess sin that is in your way.

Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves. Philippians 2:3
