First Responders June

It is the first Thursday of the month, which means it is time for us to show our appreciation to First Responders.

Psalm 71:7 says, “My life is an example to many, because you have been my strength and protection.”

Sacrifice, service and hard work. Training and preparing. So much goes into what a first responder goes through just to be prepared to serve but then on a daily basis as well. We are thankful for their courageous hearts and willingness to do a difficult and dangerous job.

Psalm 91:11 says, “For He will order His angels to protect you wherever you go.”

And Psalm 3:3 that says, “But you, O Lord, are a shield around me; you are my glory, the one who hold my head high.”

Thank you, Lord, for being with and protecting those who bravely risk their lives for others. Be with them every step of the way and let them feel your presence of peace with them throughout their days.

I know a few who are first responders and I think they have one of the hardest jobs because they are not only working longs hours, but they are also always going and training to stay at the top of their game to be prepared for anything. So, when you pray for first responders let’s pray for endurance because they will feel fatigue, anxiety and feel drained not only physically but mentally and emotionally.

Hebrews 12:12 says, “So take a new grip with your tired hands and strengthen your weak knees.”

Galatians 6:9 says, “So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessings if we don’t give up."

Pray for God to be with our first responders as they walk through this life seeing and doing things that are difficult.

Psalm 121:8 says, “The Lord keeps watch over you and you come and go, both now and forever.”

Thank you, Lord, for keeping your watchful eye and protective hand on first responders. Help keep them sharp and ready. Give them wisdom and help them to know that when it seems like it is too much that you are right there with them Lord.

We also pray for their families as they wait in hope for the return of their first responder. Be with them as well and give them peace as they wait.

Help the first responders and their families to remember Psalm 23:4 which says, “Even when I walk through the darkest valley, I will not be afraid, for you are close beside me. Your rod and your staff protect and comfort me.”
