postheadericon Police Officer’s Prayer to Saint Michael


St. Michael, Heavens glorious Commissioner of Police, who once so neatly and successfully cleared Gods premises of all its undesirables, look with kindly and professional eye on your earthly force.


Give us cool heads, stout hearts, hard punches, an uncanny flair for investigation and wise judgment. 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, St. 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 nightsticks, enroll us in your Heavenly Force, where we will be proud to guard the throne of God as we have been to guard the city of men

 

Amen
