‘Prayers for Police’ Exceeds Expectations

It was standing room only, with some unable to get into the chapel Wednesday as around 1,500 people gathered at First Baptist Church of Conroe, for the Prayers for Police Community Event. Montgomery County District Attorney Brett Ligon had the idea just a few days earlier, because of the escalating aggression toward law enforcement that resulted in the death of Harris County Deputy Sheriff Darren Goforth last Friday.

Lt. Governor Dan Patrick was the event’s keynote speaker, and it was attended by US Congressman Kevin Brady and State Representative Will Metcalf. Local officials also attended, including County Judge Craig Doyal, and many others. Law enforcement was well-represented, as were firefighters, and civilians who were there simply to show support.

In addition to short speeches, there was there were prayers and singing. Despite being a huge and diverse crowd, made up of people of different races, religions, and socio-economic backgrounds, the event had the intimate feel of a small community church with everyone united in their sorrow, their outrage and their determination to see the carnage end.
