"Over the last year, this community and beyond has prayed for the survival and the healing of Officer Matt Cooper," according to the release. "Last year at Community On Our Knees, it was just six days after he was shot in the line of duty. We were down on our knees praying for him and his family. Officer Matt Cooper will join us Sunday evening as we give thanks to God for hearing our prayers. And we will pray for Officer Cooper as he continues to heal."
