         THE POLICE PRAYER

(This prayer was created in June 1996)

 

"We stand in your presence, Great Keeper of the Peace, to ask for your blessing on New South Wales Police. With strength to share and heart to care, with courage our State we serve.  Guide us and show us the way to your truth with the New South Wales Police".

"For grace, nerve and daring, for insight as well, ask for wisdom in action, good will to do the task. With strength to share and heart to care, with courage our people we serve.  Guide us and show us the way to your truth with the New South Wales Police".

"Although at the front-line of crime and misery. we choose as our base-line to act with integrity. With strength to share and heart to care, with courage our land we serve.  Guide us and show us the way to your truth, the New South Wales Police".

"Our work has its labours that no other calling can know of life and death moments and through these we can grow. With strength to share and heart to care, with courage our God we serve".

"Guide us and show us the way to your truth the New South Wales Police".

(Freely adapted, and arranged by Martin Anderson)

Words by 'Gabrielic Lord'

 

“GOD, WE KNOW IT IS FROM YOU THAT WE HAVE LEARNED WHAT GOODNESS AND JUSTICE ARE.

 

YOU HAVE GIVEN MEMBERS OF THE NEW SOUTH WALES

POLICE SERVICE THE TASK OF MAINTAINING LAW AND

ORDER IN THIS COMMUNITY. WE SEEK THE STRENGTH TO

MEET THE MANY CHALLENGES ENCOUNTERED IN THIS

ENDEAVOUR. GIVE US THE COURAGE AND THE RESOLUTION

TO DO OUR DUTY AT ALL TIMES, AND SUCH A RESPECT AND

LOVE FOR JUSTICE, THAT NEITHER PROMISE NOR THREAT,

WILL EVER MAKE US DEPART FROM IT.

 

ENABLE US, BY YOUR PRESENCE, TO BE PROTECTOR OF THE

ENDANGERED, FRIEND TO ALL ,AND ROLE MODEL TO THE

CHILDREN AND YOUTH OF THE COMMUNITY. WHEN CALLED

UPON TO BE ADVISER, MAY WE BE INSPIRED WITH YOUR

WISDOM AND TRUTH.

 

GRANT US THE SKILL AND WISDOM WE NEED TO TRIUMPH

OVER WRONG, IN OUR ROLE OF PROTECTING THE

COMMUNITY. GUIDE US, IN KNOWING WHEN TO ENFORCE,

AND WHEN TO RELAX THE LETTER OF THE LAW. HELP US TO

BE PERSONAL EXAMPLES OF THE HONESTY, THE GOODNESS,

AND THE JUSTICE WHICH IT IS OUR DUTY TO MAINTAIN,

AND GRANT THAT OUR ACTIONS WILL INSPIRE IN OUR

COMMUNITY, CONFIDENCE IN ITS POLICE OFFICERS.

 

WE MAKE OUR PRAYER THROUGH YOU, THE ONE TRUE LIFE AFFIRMING GOD”.

AMEN.
