The most important book we have ever published.
Now in its 5th printing
Father Steve Gallagher knows what is needed every day for our police officers.
He was one himself for 30 years
before turning in his badge (the sign of one calling)
for a Roman collar (the sign of his new one).
He has been a Catholic priest since 2011.
In his introduction, he addresses his fellow officers:
"Officer needs assistance!" "Officer needs a priority backup!"
How many times in our careers have we heard that?
How many times have we responded, without hesitation?
How many times have we requested assistance? (And received it?)
How many times have we prayed,
"O Lord, I am calling, hurry to me, listen to me, I am invoking You."
In the vocation as law enforcement officers, police ask for assistance during nearly every shift while on shift. The sense of relief and assurance experienced when officers hear responding, wailing sirens or see the celestial flashing of emergency lights is quite comforting.
Not only do police officers need to ask for help, but they also need to be constantly ready to serve others. On a daily basis, they are called to serve and to protect others seeking assistance in their time of need.
In such an often difficult job, how can officers better offer (and ask) for assistance? Fr. Gallagher believes that officers can accomplish both through the power of daily prayer before, during, and after each shift.Contains:
- Prayers to start and end every shift (weekdays and holidays)
- Prayers for eleven different special assignments
- Prayers for continuing conversion and right judgment
- Prayers for those we protect
- Prayers for those who break our laws
- Prayers for those who are addicted and abused
- General prayers throughout the day
- Two complete examinations of conscience
- Scripture to know that God strengthens you every moment
Prayers are written and compiled from Scripture, tradition, and the saints.
While it is written for police officers, the daily prayers and devotionals can be used for many types of work, especially those that work directly with people!
PLUS: Each Police Officer's Devotional includes a Prayer for Police Officer's prayer card! Leave it on the fridge you can always remember to pray for your Officer.
"This book is like a retreat. I've read through it two or three times, and I can't see anybody going through this book and not having an encounter with God!"
