Internationally Known Christian Blogger Backs Day of Prayer for Police
(Katy, Texas) Recently the Houston Police Officers Union (HPOU) issued a call for a state-wide day of prayer on October 19th at 1pm. As their press release sates “We are calling upon all organizations to come together, as a unified group to support law enforcement, the community, and the leadership of the State of Texas. Our vision is one of unification, not only among law enforcement agencies, but within the communities in which we serve.”
They go on to explain their goals this way “we are encouraging each agency (police dept. sheriff’s dept. etc) to reach out to local clergy within their community along with city leaders for a1pm state wide prayer at your local city hall or union hall, in conjunction with a prayer on the steps of the state capitol. ” The series of events that will take place that day are collectively being called “Let’s Pray Texas.”
On hearing of the effort internationally known Christian blogger Rev. Robert A. Crutchfield based in Katy, Texas had this reaction, ” No one doubts that there are police officers out there that are not what they should be. Just as no one doubts that there are too many families and communities out there hurting, over regrettable incidents with which we are all becoming too familiar. However the majority of law enforcement officers are brave, hard working people doing a job of incomprehensible complexity. I pray this effort will not only be successful, but become an ever growing national movement cementing the relationship between our communities and our law enforcement officers in prayer.” Crutchfield is founder of FaithInspires.Org a Christian blog read in over 195 countries last year. He founded and runs the National First Responder Prayer Team group on Facebook which has nearly 450 members. He also serves as a Christian growth and healing expert at SelfGrowth.com the world’s leading self help website.
