An Invocation: MCPA 11/15/07

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 that you help those of us in the profession as we ask “Why?”  Help us find peace, strength and even joy as we, and those we lead, seek out and challenge the pain and suffering of the world.  We may never understand the pain and suffering, but help us understand the value and importance of our mission, To Protect and to Serve.

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.
