Prayers needed

Thursday night, a Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries agent was shot and seriously wounded while on routine patrol. I’d like to ask our readers to take a minute to pray for him, his family, co-workers and friends. And also, pray for the other agents and law enforcement personnel who put their lives on the line to make our world a better place on a daily basis.

Scott Bullitt, wasn’t involved in a confrontation with a hunter or fisherman, but encountered a driver who appeared to be intoxicated and was conducting a routine traffic stop. An occupant of the truck shot the agent in the back.

In law enforcement, routine can turn deadly in a second. Officer Bullitt was transferred to Shreveport in serious condition Friday. On duty and off duty agents from around the region responded to the manhunt, as did large numbers of other area law enforcement, and caught the suspect. LDWF Secretary Robert Barham and chief enforcement officer Col. Joey Broussard traveled from Baton Rouge to Monroe overnight to see Bullitt in St. Francis Medical Center. Again, please keep him in your prayers today.

Philippians 4:6-7

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
