Prayer for Safety and Protection for Police Department and Border Patrol Agents
Dear Heavenly Father,
Please grant us Your mercy. For Your namesake, O God, we ask that You remember the sacrifice Jesus paid on our behalf and deliver us from the hand of our enemies. Deliver us from evil we pray and hear our petition. We acknowledge You, Lord Jesus, as the One who can forgive us our sins, grant us eternal life and give us victory over our enemies. We know that there has been much bloodshed in our land, and we ask Your forgiveness for the sins of people in our cities. Forgive the generations of people that turned away from You and never asked for Your forgiveness and mercy. We ask for it now. Please help us to bring criminals to justice while providing protection, safety and order to those in our communities. Father God, we ask that You bless us with Your favor - on land, in the water, and in the airwaves. Help us to advance from victory to victory, crush the wickedness and oppression of our enemies, and establish Your justice among men and among nations. “It is time for You to act, O Lord, for they have regarded Your law as void.” (Ps. 119:126) Therefore,
The Lord has set the lines of our inheritance and we have a good inheritance. We declare the enemy shall have no memorial nor any right of inheritance in the United States of America, nor in our city. Let angelic sentries be established over every boundary line, secure our borders, patrol our cities and hold the line of defense. We ask for safety over every place where people gather: in their homes, in the workplace, shopping malls, stadiums, events, and public venues. We declare safety and divine protection throughout our public transit systems, trains, airports and air transportation, schools and universities. We include all police, sheriff’s department, special forces, border patrol, military personnel and their families, as well as every private citizen to be covered by this prayer and declaration. We declare that “no weapon formed against us shall prosper and every tongue that rises against us in judgment shall be condemned,” according to Your word in Isaiah 54:17.
A release of wisdom, foresight, knowledge and understanding; a release of courage and confidence to our police department personnel, border patrol agents, civil servants, and all those that work diligently to provide safety, protection and service to American citizens. Let our teamwork produce effective, efficient results to achieve our goals. Lord, we ask that You would cause the enemy to reveal what he has planned in secret and expose the things that have been plotted to do harm to others. Help us to catch potential problems and diffuse situations before they escalate. You said in Your word that if any man lacks wisdom he should ask and You would give it without reproach. We ask for wisdom and knowledge to be released by Your Holy Spirit that will enable us to do our jobs better. We ask for an impartation of insight that can only come from You. You said in Your word that You make us wiser than our enemies. Lord, bless us with wisdom that makes us wiser than our enemies, and grant that we would have a mouth filled with wisdom that our adversaries cannot contradict nor resist. This is Your promise in Luke 21:15.
A release of the glory of the Lord to be our rear guard. Thank You, Lord, for protecting us in our blind spots. Let the strength of the enemy’s power be broken now, in Jesus name. Let the works of evil and wrongdoing be thwarted, confused, and unraveled so that they come to nothing. We ask that You arrange the timing of our days in such a way that we do not encounter the evil intended for us. Help us avoid accidents and intentional works of evil that target police officers, border patrol agents, civil servants and their families. Help us pay attention to You communicating with us. Give us ears to hear You and a heart that is quick to respond to You.
An end to violent crimes. We decree a release of the Prince of Peace over our families, our cities, states and throughout our nation. You, O God, have a heart for these people and it is Your desire to heal and restore the citizens of our great city. Your grace is here to transform us. Your love is here to restore us. Your love surrounds us and Your power is setting us free. We release a spirit of liberty to release people from their torment, bondages and discouragement. We declare we will not be afraid to stand up for what is right in Your eyes. Give us courage, boldness, strength and unwavering commitment to stand with You. Protect us from those that want us to fall. Impart Your strength that we may honor You.
A release of the spirit of reconciliation. We declare a release of forgiveness; we will not retain the sins of others and cause bitterness to grow in our hearts. We forgive those that have sinned against us, caused offense and wounded us. Let love overcome hatred, and good overcome evil. We refuse to let pain turn us into the likeness of the enemy of our soul. We refuse to become like those that have tried to make us like them. Give people a revelation of who You are, Father. Turn the tables on the enemy and draw people to You that they might be saved. We bind up the spirits of death and hell and forbid them from advancing against us in Jesus name. We declare there shall be no more untimely loss of life. Let Your Holy Spirit release the power to heal and restore the people of our city, O God. Let the joy of the Lord be our strength.
Thank You, Father, for hearing our prayer and establishing our decree. You said in Job 22 that if we would return to You good would come to us, and in verses 27 and 28, “You will make your prayer to Him, and He will hear you. You will also declare a thing and it will be established for you, and light will shine on your ways.” You said that purity would deliver those that are not innocent. Lord, we believe that as we have prayed and made these decrees in faith, You will answer. We believe You will guard us, protect us, and deliver Your people from evil and we thank You for it. Thank you for salvation for our loved ones, deliverance from our enemies, healing for the citizens of our cities, and blessing to overflow. In Jesus name we pray, amen.
