As a 15-year veteran of the police force, Mervin Mayo is a School Resource Officer for the Richmond Alternative School in Virginia. This police officer loves the Lord and it certainly shows in his moving and inspirational video.

“I’ve always been inspired by this song, but for some reason, I couldn’t get it out of my head,” Mayo told local journalists. “So, I had to get to a piano immediately to minister to myself.”

Mayo is the second School Resource Officer in about a week to go viral for spreading the love of God.

Arkansas School Resource Officer (SRO) DeAndra Warren made waves recently because he prays every morning at the school flagpole. These men have found ways to minister wherever they are!

Viral Video Of Gospel Song

Before recording this gospel song, Mayo sang it to himself as a spiritual pick-me-up. So thank goodness he eventually decided to share it with his Facebook friends, and ultimately the world.

“I had just gotten off work and stopped by the church, where I am a minister of music, on the way home to do praise and worship for myself,” Officer Mayo said. “I have to minister to myself before I can minister to someone else.”

“When everyone else around could only see my failures, God saw the best in Me… it doesn’t matter what I did, because God sees me for who I am…. He knows MY heart..,” Mayo wrote when he shared the inspiring video.
