Prayers requested ...

Post by StoicDetective » Sun Aug 12, 2018 5:26 pm

Gentlemen (and Ladies),

I'm dropping in again, after some time away ... work has been and is continuing to pile.

Here are the things I need prayers for:
I am now the only Agent (State Police Investigator) for my Agency (Texas Alcoholic Beverage Comm) in the Texas Panhandle. I cover roughly 28,000 sq miles. The closest Agents to me are at least a 115 to the south. At times, my radio doesn't communicate with my local PD's, SOs, and HP. Basically, I am prioritizing alcohol related death/source investigations and nasty bar fights. Thankfully most understand and are willing to support. My chain of command has informed me that there might be a new Agent winter of 2019, but don't plan for it.

My wife and her parents understand and are supportive as well (God has blessed me with a wonderful lady).

All the driving has provided plenty of time for reflection and prayer.


Blessings y'all.

Wow. You have a very interesting and very demanding job! Prayers up that you will be able to balance your work with family.
