Scripture: “Righteousness guards the man of integrity, but wickedness overthrows the sinner.” -Proverbs 13:6
Prayer: God of wonder, how awesome are Your deeds! You spread out the stars with Your righteous right hand and fill the seas with creatures of all kinds. You shape the mountains and the valleys, filling the earth with green grass, flowers, and trees. We marvel at the glory of Your creation.
Lord, I ask that You would guard the troops and the police from temptation. Give them grace to carry out their duties with integrity and respect for those they serve. Lord, You guard the man of integrity, so we ask You to strengthen their resolve to do what is right, so that You can surround them with Your favor like a shield.
Lord, cause compassion to rise in their hearts and guide their actions. Send Your Spirit to convict them of wicked thoughts and pluck their feet out of the net. Guide them with Your eye upon them, that they might not give cause for the enemy to gloat.
