Policeman’s Prayer

Dear Lord, be with me on my beat this day and every day.

Grant that each weary block I walk may ease a brother’s way.

Let me be kindly to the old and to the young be strong.

But let me triumph over those whose acts are cruel and wrong.

And if according to your plan, I am to lose my life,

Please bless with your protecting hand my children and my wife.
