I’m not sure when or why exactly I started doing this, but ever since I can remember, anytime I’ve heard or seen an ambulance, fire truck, or police car drive by with their lights flashing, I stop and say a prayer.
I pray that God will be with the person they’re on their way to help. I pray that God will guide the hands of the EMT or Firefighters. I pray that God will keep the police officers safe who arrive at whatever scene awaits.
Most of the time, I envision that there is someone sick or hurt who needs help – and I feel that most of the time, my prayers are being said over that person in that time of need.
This is a habit that I’m proud to say my son has started adopting, and often, he is the one beating me to that first line of my prayer.
Whether you yourself are going through a time of need in terms of healing, or you know someone else who is. Hopefully you’ll find comfort and faith in these scriptures for just that – faith and healing.
