    A prayer before putting on CCW?

    Does anyone say a prayer (or would like to share theirs) before they put on their weapon in the morning?

    I am very new to concealed carry, but it is a right so sacred that I never realized how powerful it was until I was able to do it!

    I alway say, "Heavenly Father, please keep me safe today, keep my family safe today and please protect me from using this weapon unless I need to".

    Sounds good to me - and very appropriate. I say essentially the same thing.

    Dear Lord, let my weapon be used honorably, if it is to be used. Let it be straight and true, and never harm an innocent. Give me the wisdom, courage, and skill to use it well, yet keep me humble while I am armed.

    Amen

    I don't say it like that every day, but usually something to that effect.

    I hadn't thought of it, but it is a good idea. I'll add something to my morning routine.

    I haven't done it yet, but I totally agree with it because I have read alot on CC & Self-Defense and from what I have read if you have to use your weapon it can be a very daunting experience from a physical & legal standpoint. It would be good to have god on your side in either case.

    I pray about both big things and little things. Your prayer falls on the big side of things.

    On the uniform belt buckle of every member of the SS the words "Gott Mit Uns" (God is with us) was enscribed.

    I pray every morning. I carry because I believe God told me to (could have as much to do W/ how polite it makes me as anything else)but I never ask God to bless my piece.

    I would pray when hunting that God help me not to cause any unecessary pain.

    I think about it every now and then...now I was much more inclined to say a prayer before every shift when I was an LEO...Never a bad idea...

    No.

    I took a blood oath when I first pursued being legally armed. That applies to my every waking moment, now. I simply give it a final "pat" once I've holstered-up, as acknowledgment that it's there and as a reminder of the responsibility I have. The rest is up to criminals: don't attack me, and you won't have to be shown the meaning of "no."

    I pray multiple times every day, but for some odd reason I can't explain, I never thought to pray about not having to use my weapon. I will every day from now on.

    No, not every time I load up, but I do often pray that I'll never need to use it and that if I ever do, that I will do so swiftly, responsibly and effectively.
