    Heavenly Father, in the name of your son Jesus Christ, we lift up the police officer who was shot, we pray for his quick recovery, his full healing. Lord, we pray for your peace that passes all understanding to fill that police officer and his family & friends. We pray for the suspect, Floyd Brown, that he will not hurt any one else including himself in Jesus name. We pray Lord, that you will convict Floyd so strongly of his crime that he will turn himself in. All for your glory Father! Amen!
