A Police Officer’s Prayer

Lord I ask for courage

Courage to face and
Conquer my own fears…

Courage to take me
Where others will not go…

I ask for strength

Strength of body to protect others
And strength of spirit to lead others…

I ask for dedication

Dedication to my job, to do it well
Dedication to my community
To keep it safe…

Give me Lord, concern
For others who trust me
And compassion for those who need me…

And please Lord

Through it all
Be at my side…

Police Officer’s Prayer to St. Michael

Saint Michael, heaven’s glorious commissioner of police, who once so neatly and successfully cleared God’s premises
of all its undesirables, look with kindly and professional eyes on your earthly force.

Give us cool heads, stout hearts, and uncanny flair for investigation and wise judgement.

Make us the terror of burglars, the friend of children and law-abiding citizens, kind to strangers, polite to bores,
strict with law-breakers and impervious to temptations.

You know, Saint Michael, from your own experiences with the devil that the police officer’s lot on earth is not always a happy one; but your sense of duty that so pleased God, your hard knocks that so surprised the devil, and your angelic self-control give us inspiration.

And when we lay down our night sticks, enroll us in your heavenly force, where we will be as proud to guard the throne of God as we have been to guard the city of all the people.


– Rev. Patrick J. Gallagher, S.J. of Washington
