Police officers of Harris County Sheriff’s Office face the coronavirus crisis by lifting up their fellow officer who has been brought to ICU due to COVID-19 through prayer.
Sgt. Raymond Scholwinski has served Harris County Sheriff’s Office for 26 years. After he was tested positive of COVID-19, he was brought to ICU.
Police Officers Fighting In Prayer
And on April 15, the law enforcement community decided to fight in prayer for their fellow officer who is in critical condition. They gathered outside the police department’s parking lot while adhering to the social distancing protocol being at least 6ft. apart. Also, everyone wore their face masks. Then the participants delivered a powerful prayer to aide Sgt. Raymond in battling the coronavirus.
The endearing moment included the Sergeant’s son urging the prayer warriors to “Keep my dad, our family, and healthcare workers in your thoughts and prayers.”
They stood in front of their patrol vehicles where the Sheriff’s deputies lifted up their hands in unison as they commenced a prayer. Lt. Shannon Bowdoin led the prayer while laying his hand on Sgt. Raymond’s son. He declared, “Father, we come to You now, and I come to You in the Name of Jesus. And I ask You, Father, to touch this family. I especially ask You right now, Lord, to reach down into that hospital room where Ray is…And by Your sovereign strength, power and authority, will You touch every cell of his body? Father, bless each of us with Your presence. Let each of us know that You have never left us nor forsaken us, and on this Passover day that we would see death pass us over…”
Although Sgt. Raymond is alone in the ICU room, he is never alone in this battle. What these police officers did for their fellow officer is more than just any random act of kindness. Because nothing is more beautiful and powerful than being in someone’s prayer. Not to mention that all police officers of Harris County Sheriff’s Office agreed in prayer for his total healing and fast recovery.
Through this event, may we be reminded to fight our battles on our knees in prayer. To always pray to God especially with the pandemic enveloping the world right now. Let His Kingdom come on earth as it is in Heaven!
