At the Police Station Dedication (A Prayer)

O Gracious God, we thank you for the beauty of this day and for your presence with us as we come together to celebrate the renovation at the Monroe Police Department and dedicate this brand new building. We thank you for all the persons who have worked very hard to complete this project for the town of Monroe and its police force. Our prayer is that you will continue to lead and bless all who work in this magnificent facility, that all may live into their duty to protect and serve all the citizens of Monroe as they have done since its inception in 1952 and enhance the quality of life for all people. Help all of us, Lord, in these anxious days to be free of our fear, to look to these helpers, those who defend our freedom & keep us safe & sound, so we can tuck our children & grandchildren into bed in peace and harmony. In the time of prosperity, fill our hearts with thankfulness, and in the day of trouble, guide us courageously to stand with each other and our men and women in blue, in faith and truth. Amen.  (cobbeled from various sources)
