For those who are in the Police Force although rewarding it is a very hard and a stressful Occupation and one that is not fully understood unless involved in personally. Police officers must endure long hours including shift work that is often unpredictable and crisis-driven as well as Public scrutiny and sometimes hash and unfair judgment.
With my having been evolved in Organizations that worked closely with the Police and also needing their help personally a few times myself, I found them to be very respectful and considerate of others and also in regards to my needs, offering their support and encouragement and willing to go the extra mile if needed..
It grieves me to hear the Police put down instead of commended for the work they do, of course like all Professions there is always a few who are not dedicated to the overall requirements of their role in our Communities but most Police are and give much more than expected when needed.
Below is short Poem that focuses on the Role of the Police in our Lives.
The Thin Blue Line
A Thin Blue Line winds through our Country,
Keeping us all Safe and Free.
Their lives at risk a Thankless task,
But every day this we ask.
They could be your Sister….Brother,
Protecting all like there’s no other.
Give praise to those who us Protect,
And to our Police please give respect.
By Mariette Supple
1 Timothy 2:1-3 I exhort therefore that first of all supplications, prayers, intercessions and giving of Thanks be made for all Men. For Kings and for all that are in Authority that we may lead a quiet and Peaceable life in all Godliness and Honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour (KJV)
Let’s Pray for our Police Force and if the opportunity presents itself Thank them also for a job well done.
