Correction 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 all those who trust me...
And compassion for those
Who need me.


And please, Lord
Throughout it all.
Be at my side.
