An Atlanta police officer’s actions have gone viral for all the right reasons.

Officer Danielle Ognelodh was on duty when a boy came up to her and asked her for a prayer, so she prayed over the boy, and the whole thing was caught on cell phone video.

“We went outside and one of the kids asked for prayer. I sat there with the kids and we all prayed. They told me some things in their life that they were going through and that’s how the video happened,” Ognelodh told Channel 2’s Audrey Washington.

She added that she hopes that she can continue to help build a bond between the police and the community.
