As long as I can remember my mom has had me say a prayer every time we hear or see an ambulance drive by. I offer my prayer for the health intention of the patients and for the EMS workers, I also pray for the families of both. (I know that the EMS families miss their loved one while they work and the families of those injured are often very nervous.)
As I was out shopping for Christmas dresses with a few of the girls we saw an ambulance drive by on a major road. It was heading in the opposite direction with its lights and siren on. We couldn't even see the lettering to know if it was the same company that our daughter works for but we paused and said a prayer like always.
