Church of the Reformation

Date of Prayer: 09/19/2016

Opening Prayer Given by the Guest Chaplain:

God of earth and air, water and fire, height and depth, we pray for those who work in danger, who rush in to bring hope and help and comfort when others flee to safety, whose mission is to seek and save, serve and protect, and whose presence embodies the protection of the Good Shepherd.
Thank you for the first responders in each community including the United States Capitol Police. Give them caution and concern for one
another, so that in safety they may do what must be done under Your watchful eye.
Support them in their courage and dedication that they may continue to save lives, ease pain, and mend the torn fabric of lives and social order.
In the spirit of justice, love, and humility we pray.
