    Thumbs up Correctional Officer's Prayer

    CORRECTIONAL OFFICER'S PRAYER

    Lord, when it's time to go inside,
    That Place of steel and stone.
    I pray that you will keep me safe,
    So I won't walk alone.

    Help me to do my duty,
    Please watch me on my rounds.
    Amongst those perilous places,
    And slamming steel door sounds.

    God, keep my fellow Officers
    Well and free from harm.
    Let them know I'll be there too,
    Whenever there's alarm.

    Above all when I walk my beat,
    No matter where I roam.
    Let me go back whence I came,
    To family and home.

    I have been carrying that in my pocket for five years now. I've been a CO for eight years and live by the fact that everyone goes home.

    Lord, I ask for courage...
    Courage to face and conquer my own fears.
    Courage to take me where others will not go

    I ask for strength...
    Strength of body to protect others
    Strength of spirit to lead others.

    I ask for dedication...
    Dedication to my job, to do it well.
    Dedication to my community, to keep it safe.

    Give me, Lord, concern
    for all those who trust me
    and compassion for those who need me.

    And please, Lord, through it all...
    be at my side.
