A Policeman’s Prayer to Saint Michael
Saint Michael, Heaven’s glorious Commissioner of Police,
who once so neatly and successfully cleared
God’s promises of all its undesirables, look with kindly
and professional eye on your earthly force.
Give us cool heads, stout hearts, hard punches, an
uncanny flair for investigation and wise judgment.
Make us the terror of burglars, the friend of children
and law-abiding citizens, kind to strangers, polite
to bores, strict with law-breakers,
and impervious to temptations.
You know, Saint Michael, from your own experience
with the devil, that the policeman’s lot on earth is not
always a happy one; but your sense of duty that so
pleased God, your hard knocks that so surprised the
devil, and your angelic self-control give us inspiration.
And when we lay down our night sticks, enroll us in
your Heavenly Force, where we will be as proud to
guard the throne of God as we have been
to guard the city of men.
