A 4-year-old boy from Northern California had his touching gesture of faith go viral.

The Valley Fire currently ravaging parts of Northern California has been devastating families and homes and is being called one of the worst fres in the state’s history. When 4-year-old Brody saw reports of the horrific fires — and the 130,000 people the fires have displaced — on the news, he did something amazing to show his support of the firefighters, WSBTV reported.

Brody retrieved his firefighter costume, which he wore for Halloween last year, and began to pray for the 2,638 firefighters risking their lives to fight the flames. 

A photo of the young boy praying quickly went viral, garnering more than 20,000 shares and 60,000 likes on Facebook in just over a day. Response from viewers was overwhelmingly positive.

“Childlike faith can move mountains,” one viewer wrote.

“Sending prayers along with Brody's for all our firefighters and those affected by the fires,” another commented.
