Minnesota Chiefs of Police Association Executive Board Meeting

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 blessings upon the new leadership of this association. Let them know they are welcome and appreciated. Be with us as we develop a new collective identity to carry out the common mission to lead the association. But don’t let us forget the importance and value of our individual personalities, experiences and perspectives. Bless us with strength, peace, wisdom and humility in the coming year.

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.
