Romans 13:1-4 (ESV)
Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God. Therefore whoever resists the authorities resists what God has appointed, and those who resist will incur judgment. For rulers are not a terror to good conduct, but to bad. Would you have no fear of the one who is in authority? Then do what is good, and you will receive his approval, for he is God’s servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword in vain. For he is the servant of God, an avenger who carries out God’s wrath on the wrongdoer.
Our Father in heaven,
We pray that in the Mississippi Delta there will be a spirit of respect for law enforcement officials. No weapon used against them shall succeed, and every tongue that rises against the law enforcement officials in judgment shall be refuted. We bless them in their going out and their coming in. The Lord keep them from all evil and guard their lives. Amen.
Isaiah 54:17, Psalm 121:7-8
