emergency-vehicleWhen you hear an emergency vehicle’s siren, say a short prayer for the emergency responders and the people they are going to help. You can pray an Our Father, or even something as simple as, “God, please be with the people who are scared and needing help; please be with the emergency helpers to keep them safe and to help them to know what to do.” Close with the Sign of the Cross.


Talking Points: The Power of Prayer

You can point out to your children that God wants us to help those in need—personally, with our own hands, if possible. (You can tell them the parable of the Good Samaritan, found in Luke 10:25-37.) However, when it is impossible to help someone personally, God gives us the opportunity to reach out to people in need through our prayer. When we pray for those in need, we participate in God’s work in their lives.
