WYNNE, Ark. (WNCN) — We don’t often see what school resource officers do on their off-duty time away from students, but one Arkansas officer stops at the school’s flagpole every day to pray for the school, children and the community.
The moment was captured by Officer DeAndra Warren’s daughter De’Andria on Facebook and shows De’Andria’s father praying by the flagpole that stands in front of the school.
“Often you don’t see an officer on school grounds at the flag pole praying for our children! I know this amazing Man of God who prays for our school systems, your children, and our community every day faithfully!” De’Andria says in the post.
Officer Warren has been an officer for the Wynne Police Department in Arkansas for the last seven years, according to CBS-affiliate THV11.
According to THV11, Officer Warren is also a minister and plays the drums. Warren said he does whatever his heart and hands find to do in the house of God.
“I feel led by the Spirit of God to pray for our students and all staff in our school district,” Officer Warren said, followed by quoting a bible verse, “2 Chronicles 7:14 says: If my people, which are call by name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will heal their land.”
