Pray for me, A Police Officer


#1

I left a mainline Dept last November, and went to Police at a college. Long story short, I was involved in a critcal incident and when I got to where I could defend myself, the man took his own life. Now I am over it but am thinking of getting back into main stream law enforcement, but I am having some doubts as to if God wants me to do this or if I want to. I really need God’s guidence right now! thanks for the future prayers

"I was involved in a critcal incident and when I got to where I could defend myself, the man took his own life. "

Was a death-by-cop situation? Did you follow procedure? Would you have done something different on the streets?

I pray to holy mother Mary to guide you in your life and that the lord bring you peace of mind.

Sounds like a gutcheck combined with your choosing to do God’s will. Sometimes God himself checks your resolve and sometimes your will is opposing His message. This is a tough one, I’m sure. I’ll say a prayer to our Lord to help you discern as well as a prayer to St. Micheal. Your intentions seem good, God Bless, Tim

thanks for all the thoughts and prayers. I went to an interview and got the job. I feel soo much at peace now with the whole thing. I really feel God is telling me to go back to the front lines , if you will. Maybe I retreated when I should have pushed on. But I thank you all.

No it was not, some say that it was going to be , but they were not there and did not hear the conversation. Yes I did follow procedure, if there was one for this paticular situation, I was held hostage basically for about 10 minutes, no backup, just me and him.
