According to a video that has had more than 700,000 views, a Chick-fil-A in Belmont, North Carolina is serving up more than just chicken, they also offer prayer.
In August 2018, a customer filmed a video of a very special occurrence seldom seen at a restaurant. The staff gathered around the serving counter to offer up a prayer for one of their staff members.
According to the video, the manager made an announcement – that a store employee was heading in for surgery and requested to pray aloud for the woman. In the video, he can be heard saying, “We have one of our team members that is starting surgery right now for breast cancer, and we’d like to say a short prayer for her.”
Not only were the associates gathered to pray but, the patrons also participated in the prayer for this associate, known only as Ms. Trish. As she went into surgery, everyone offered up a prayer.
‘Please get her back, to brighten our days’
“So if you all know her from our dining room, today is a rough day for us. We’re hoping that things will go well. If you’ll bow your heads – and I’m not great at this, but I’m going to do my best,” the manager continued.
“Dear Lord, please protect Ms. Trish as she begins her surgery today. Please give the surgeon a steady hand as they perform the needed surgery on her,” he added.
“Please keep everyone in the surgery room at their best with sharp minds and clear heads as they work on her. We need [Ms. Trish] back here, she is our light. She is a pillar in the community for us,” the manager continued. “Everybody here loves her so much. Please, please just protect her and get her back here to brighten our days. In Jesus’ name, we pray, amen.”
According to WJZY-TV, Ms. Trish did come through her surgery and is on the mend.
