Prayers

Welcome to the Chaplain's Prayer Section. The IAWP is an international organization whose members represent many diverse faiths. The IAWP does not endorse one particular religion.

I have been asked for prayers and how to pray by many people and wanted to provide a few example of prayers. I am available to personally pray for and with you if you desire and can be reached at ChaplainDow@yahoo.com. I conduct a prayer for law enforcement on Friday morning at Prayer Mountain Church which is located in Las Vegas, Nevada USA. My team will pray over your prayer request and they will remain private and confidential.

I am a woman of Faith. I encourage and look forward to hearing from people of all faith.

Stay Safe,

Chaplain Tamia Dow

Serenity Prayer

God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.

The Lord's Prayer
Matthew 6:9-13

9 After this manner therefore pray ye:
Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
10 Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
11 Give us this day our daily bread.
12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil:
For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.

Psalm 23

The Lord is my Shepherd; I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures:
He leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul:
He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His name' sake.

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil: For thou art with me;
Thy rod and thy staff, they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies;
Thou annointest my head with oil; My cup runneth over.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the House of the Lord forever.

(King James Version of the Bible)

POLICE OFFICERS PRAYERS
A Police Officer’s Prayer

Lord, I ask for courage.
Courage to face and conquer my own fears....
Courage to take me where others will not go.

I ask for strength...
Strength of body to protect others..
Strength of spirit to lead others.

I ask for dedication...
Dedication to my job, to do it well...
Dedication to my community, to keep it safe.

Give me Lord, concern...
For those who trust me and compassion for those who need me.

And please Lord.....
Through it all be at my side.

Police Officer's Prayer to St. Michael

Saint Michael, heaven's glorious commissioner of police,
who once so neatly and successfully cleared God's premises
of all its undesirables, look with kindly and professional
eyes on your earthly force.

Give us cool heads, stout hearts, and uncanny flair for
investigation and wise judgment.

Make us the terror of burglars, the friend of children and
law-abiding citizens, kind to strangers, polite to bores,
strict with law-breakers and impervious to temptations.

You know, Saint Michael, from your own experiences
with the devil that the police officer's lot on earth is not
always a happy one; but your sense of duty that so
pleased God, your hard knocks that so surprised the
devil, and your angelic self-control give us inspiration.

And when we lay down our night sticks, enroll us in your
heavenly force, where we will be as proud to guard the
throne of God as we have been to guard the city of all
the people.

Amen.
