Oct 4, 2011

The city of Chandler is mixing government and religion when it erected these two prayer monuments next the the Chandler Police Department Headquarters and the Chandler Fire Department Headquarters.

These religious monuments which were paid for with tax dollars violated both the Federal First Amendment and the Arizona Constitution. make a public records request on how much these government prayer monuments cost

Police Officer's Prayer

Lord, I ask for courage
Courage to face and
Conquer my own fears...

Courage to take me
Where others will not go.

I ask for strenght,
Strength of body to protect others
and strength of spirt to lead others.

I ask for dedication,
Dedication to do my job,
to do it well.
Dedication to my community
to keep it safe.

And please, Lord, through it all
be at my side.

Fighterfighter's Prayer

When I am called to duty, God
Whereever flames may rate,
Give me the strength to save a life
whatever be its age.

Help me to embrace a little child
before it is too late,
Or save an older person
from the horror of that fate.

Enable me to be alert
and hear the weakest shout,
And quickly and efficiently
to put the fire out.

I want to fill my calling
and give the best in me,
To guard my neighbors
and protect their property.

And if according to my fate
this world and I must part,
Please bless with Your protecting hand
those closest to my heart.

Complain about this violation of Church & State to:
