Kids sometimes make the news for being mischievous. However, these little ones can save the world. A man recently shared a touching clip of the moment some young boys paused their baseball game halfway.

The game-day was meant to be a day where these kids would impress their family members who had gathered to cheer them on in their little competition. However, little did they know that it would put them in the headlines.

AN EMERGENCY DURING THE GAME

As the game progressed, one of the spectators, the grandpa of one of the players, suffered a medical emergency, which caused a stir on the field.

Adults on the stands immediately rushed to the aid of the older man, providing him with emergency medical help. First, however, the little boys decided to help in the way they could.

PRAYING LITTLE BOYS

This group of young boys, all under the age of ten, showed bravery in the face of danger. Rather than panic, the boys assembled, holding each other's hands, and began to pray. 

Pictures from the scene showed the young baseball players saying a word of prayer for their colleague's family. The expression on their faces showed how seriously they took the moment.

Blake Bastin, an Oklahoma pastor, captured the story. Most social media users observed how the boys decided independently without being told to pray. In the lengthy post he shared, Bastin wrote:

"These boys, most 10, some younger, all got together, on their own, took each other by the hand, and joined together in prayer. They didn't know everything, they didn't have all the answers, but they knew that it was a time to pray. "

Ending his post, the pastor urged his leaders to emulate the faith shown by these youngsters. Bastin further added that people don't have all the answers, but praying could bring help and relief in difficult times.
