The purpose of Adopt-a-Cop is to assign law enforcement officers to a family, group, or individual who will pray daily for them and send a note of encouragement, support and a thank you for their service to the community.
Imagine the powerful difference you can make in the lives of those who put their lives on the line for us every day! While a bulletproof vest gives a level of protection for our law enforcement officers, an even greater blessing and shield of protection can be found in the power of a faithful, praying believer or group of prayer warriors.
Besides the obviously high physical risk in their profession, officers also have a risk of becoming cynical, feeling hopeless, having relationship problems, succumbing to alcohol abuse and even becoming suicidal. The divorce and suicide rates among those in law enforcement are well above the national average.
"I urge then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercessions and thanksgiving be made for everyone — for kings and for all those in authority that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness." — 1 Timothy 2:1-2 (NIV)
