There’s no doubt about it, a first responder’s job is filled with risk and culture today doesn’t often value the sacrifice it takes for them to do their job. Law enforcement, firefighters, paramedics, and EMTs, all choose to put their own safety aside for the sake of ensuring someone else’s. We are so grateful for their hearts to protect and serve, and today we pray intentionally for the men and women in these lines of duty.
We pray for safety over the men and women who serve our community, daily risking their lives for others, and for wisdom in the difficult choices they make each day. We pray for calm, clarity, and courage as they navigate complicated scenarios. We pray for the relationships with their families and friends, that they would be strengthened and encouraged in their time off. We pray they would know God personally and be strengthened in His power. And we give thanks for how they serve our community so selflessly.
