Answered Prayer: Police Officers Engage God’s Word

Thank God for the Bible’s impact on Philadelphia law enforcement.

Join us in thanking God for Strength for the Street, a new Bible resource designed for law enforcement officers – starting with Philadelphia law enforcement and prayerfully expanding to other cities as needed.

On December 15, American Bible Society held an event at its headquarters to launch Strength for the Street, a Bible and accompanying devotional with stories from Philadelphia's own police officers and chaplains. Philadelphia Police Commissioner Richard Ross Jr., and members of Philadelphia police department attended the event.

"We are grateful to American Bible Society for providing this resource for our police force," said Commissioner Ross. "We hope Strength for the Street will provide our officers peace and comfort as they deal with the stresses and challenges of protecting Philadelphia's residents."

The devotional contains stories that address police officers' need for strength in a variety of situations: when guilt is overwhelming, when sadness and grief are a struggle, and when life seems to lack purpose.

Let’s say a prayer of thanks for this wonderful opportunity to serve law enforcement and let’s ask God to continue to strengthen and comfort police officers and chaplains through his Word.


PRAYER OF THANKS:

God, thank you for opening the door to collaborate with the Philadelphia Police Department. We pray this will open up more opportunities to bring the “Strength for the Street” resource to other police departments throughout the nation. We also pray that police officers and chaplains will experience your hope and strength as they engage in the Word of God.
