An Invocation: MCPA 02/21/08

Minnesota Chiefs of Police Association
Board Meeting Invocation Feb. 21, 2008

Dear God,

We thank you today for this opportunity to gather in the spirit of law enforcement leadership.  We ask for guidance as we carry out our leadership roles in this association.

Specifically today we ask for the gifts of patience, strength and wisdom.   As we carry out our responsibilities in working with the political process, help us navigate the systems with patience, stand on our principles with strength and be wise in our decisions so they we can effectively carry out our responsibilities as public safety leaders.

Bless the food we receive today as nourishment for our bodies, the information presented as nourishment for our minds and the fellowship we share as nourishment for our souls.
