A powerful image of a North Carolina sheriff’s deputy praying with his two young kids is circulating online this Easter Sunday.
Cleveland County Deputy Jordan Perkins and his family joined Fox and Friends Weekend this morning to share why prayer is such a big part of their lives.
Perkins said he and his wife are teaching their son and daughter, Mason and Maya, to pray several times a day.
“Like the Bible says, when you raise up kids in the way of Lord when they’re young, then they won’t stray from it when they’re older,” he said. “We keep them in the church as much as possible.”
Perkins’ wife, Kelsie Nicole, said they try to share a moment of prayer every time he heads out to work.
“It makes me feel a lot better, a lot safer, knowing that I’ve got people looking out for me at home,” said the deputy.
“I don’t think that anything about us is special,” Kelsie said about the photo going viral.
“I think that we’re all the same in God’s eyes, but for some reason, God chose our family and our photo to share his message that we should worry about nothing, but pray about everything.”
