The Police Federation of England and Wales, which is holding its annual conference in Bournemouth, is calling for all frontline police officers to be offered stun guns for protection.
But the Christian Police Association thinks there is something else that can help.
Speaking on Premier's News Hour, Executive Director Lee Russell said: "We all believe in the power of prayer in the Christian Police Association and we want to protect all of our offices of all faiths and none.
"If you hear a siren, take a second to stop and say 'Lord, please protect that officer wherever they're going'. That officer doesn't know where they're going to and what they're going to face when they get there so a prayer would be very, very grateful."
Meanwhile, the head of the Hampshire branch of the Police Federation has claimed rural officers fear they would be "sitting ducks" in the event of an armed terrorist attack.
John Apter told the BBC that a national shortage of armed officers could leave police in isolated areas "unarmed and vulnerable".
Speaking to BBC Radio 4's File on 4, Mr Apter said that there were potential targets in rural and coastal areas - such as energy and power plants - but that armed officers could be more than 70 miles away in an emergency.
"Being realistic, if a firearms unit was coming from the middle of the county, you are still talking about 30 miles away - you are not talking about a few minutes," he said.
After the terror attacks in Brussels, the Government announced more firearms officers would be trained.
