A Deputy Sheriff's Prayer
Oh, Almighty God, whose great power
and eternal wisdom embraces the universe.
Please watch over all our Deputies.
Protect them in their everyday duties of serving papers,
traffic violations, riots, evictions, domestic violence, and more.
Give them the strength to accomplish
the difficult tasks that lie before them.
Give them the wisdom and quick reactions that will result
in the safety of the people in their community.
God, protect these brave men and women.
Grant them your Almighty protection
and please unite them safely with their families
after their duty has ended.
