Adopt-A-Cop Ministry

St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the Devil. 
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou, O Prince of the heavenly hosts, by the power of God, 
thrust into hell Satan, and all the evil spirits, who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.


– Prayer to St. Michael the Archangel

Serving Those Who Protect

 

The goal of Adopt-A-Cop is to assign law enforcement officers from the Brookhaven Police Department 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 family.

One of the purposes of Adopt-A-Cop is to encourage prayer partners to take the time to send a handwritten note to an individual law enforcement officer. The note doesn’t have to be long or eloquent, and it doesn’t necessarily even need to be original. A simple “thank you” for your service along with a scripture reference can communicate volumes to the recipient.
