For fallen officers in my city...
« on: November 30, 2009, 01:34:05 AM »
Please pray for the four police officers shot and killed in a coffee shop in a suburb of my city. We are all devastated as this seems to be the peak in a string of violence we have seen recently. My heart goes out to their families.

Lord, have mercy.

We're a couple of counties down from you and are praying very hard for the officers, their families and the police department. Hopefully they catch the perpetrator quickly.

Memory Eternal!

Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.
