'We Cry Out to You Right Now Lord Jesus!': Police K9 Unit's Emotional Prayer with Dog-Loving Boy before Brain Tumor Surgery

Jennifer Wishon : Jul 20, 2018 :

"I just wanted to get, one [prayer in], believing in God's healing powers. I never expected anything like this to go viral. I don't want the attention. It's not about me. It's about God. It's about Jalen and getting his story out there. I just really hope and pray for his total healing and that people will go and support the family." -Officer Jason Lambert

[] A compassionate police officer and his trusty German shepherd took a few minutes out to pray with a 9-year-old boy before he underwent surgery to remove a brain tumor. Jalen Manns was diagnosed with a life-threatening Thalamic Glioma brain growth in May and underwent surgery earlier this month. But just before he was whisked off to the hospital, several officers from the Warner Robins Police Department paid him a very special visit. (Image via

Jalen absolutely loves German shepherds, so the officers brought along their highly-trained K9 and offered to pray with the young boy. Footage of the incredibly powerful moment has gone viral, as an officer can be seen getting choked up as he knelt down, rested a hand on Jalen's shoulder and cried out to Jesus.

"Lord Heavenly Father, we just come to You now, Lord God, asking for Your words of encouragement and strength today," the officer said, as his K9 sat next to him.

"Lord we know that it is Your will and divine intervention that has made this day possible," the officer continued. "Lord, be with them in the operating room today. Guide their hands. We pray for Jalen that You would heal his body, Lord God. Heal him from the things that are hindering him right now, Lord Jesus."

He added: "Lord God, we know that Your touch and Your Blood can heal him right now. We pray for the family—that You would guide them and keep them safe. Give them strength throughout this trying time. Let them know that You're with them. We cry out to You right now Lord Jesus."

Jalen's mom, Hannah Manns, told CBS News that Jaden is so fanatic about this particular breed of dog that he even has a collection of stuffed German shepherds in his bedroom. He calls them "Jalen's guard dogs," his mom noted.

Manns explained that most of the stuffed animals had been donated by people who had responded to Jalen's story on Facebook. "We created the Team Jalen Facebook page... just to see what I could do as a mom to comfort him, because Jalen has really bad anxiety," Manns explained. She also noted that the tumor has been causing various psychological and sensory issues for her son, including increased anxiety. (Images: via Team Jalen-Go Fund Me page)

After spotting a post about her son's love for German shepherds, The Warner Robins Police Department decided to do something very special for Jalen ahead of his major surgery...

...A GoFundMe page has been set up for Jalen—you can visit it here.
