Our Father in Heaven, Your word says, “You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart.” And that’s what we pray for the men and women of the Rome, Italy, Police Department as they cope with the tragic loss of Officer Mario Cerciello Rega stabbed by two teens from America. O Lord, as we come boldly before Your Throne of Grace, we ask for Your Holy Spirit to be poured out upon the many co-workers and friends of Officer Rega. At a time of loss like this when we know the pain is ever so great in their hearts, may the presence of Your Holy Spirit touch the many hearts in need of Your grace, mercy, presence peace and comfort. Lord, we especially lift up Officer Rega’s wife and family who are in obvious shock and mourning ever so greatly at this horrific loss—especially since he is a newlywed. We know it is only by Your amazing grace, presence, comfort and love that will carry every peace officer in Rome through this very difficult time in the loss of their dear friend and co-worker. May those within the Rome Police Department who are grieving and mourning know your word says they can, “Cast all [their] anxieties on You, because [You] care for [them].”;And that “The Lord is good, a stronghold in the day of trouble; he knows those who take refuge in him.” Lord, as we know traumatic events like these can cause emotional trauma for years to come, we ask for Your Grace to intervene in those deeply troubled and replace their grief with Your everlasting comfort and joy. May You use this tragedy to draw many officers and family members ever so close to Your side. As the Rome Police Department must begin the preparations for a final farewell to Officer Rega, may You use this to draw many unto the love of Your Son. May many recognize the need of the “Peace” found only in Your Son that is accompanied with His amazing forgiveness of sins. May many know that Your Word says, “Now is the day of salvation.” May many receive Your Son into their hearts as their Savior and Lord, in the name of Jesus Christ we pray, Amen.
