Hennepin County Chiefs of Police Association

Meeting Invocation 11/02/06

Dear God,

Today we ask for the gift of strength. Not a harsh or divisive strength, but a gentle, reconciling strength. Help us use this strength to lead and support next weeks newly elected officials. Give us the strength to provide them with the information and resources they need to constructively and cooperatively support our critical public safety missions.

As always we give thanks for this opportunity to gather in the spirit of Public Safety leadership. We ask that you bless the food we receive today as nourishment for our bodies, the information we receive as nourishment for our minds and the fellowship we share as nourishment for our souls.

Again we thank you for this time together. Please guide us as we lead those who protect and serve our communities.
