The Bible tells us that the world will know we are Christians by our love for one another, and there are few ways better to love a brother or sister than to lift them up in prayer.

While Chick-fil-A may be best known for their incredible acts of kindness for their customers and communities, one of their own employees was the on the receiving end of one of the restaurant’s latest heartwarming deeds.

At the Belmont, North Carolina location of America’s favorite chicken joint, a woman known as Ms. Trish isn’t just an employee, she’s a beloved member of the community.

When she was diagnosed with breast cancer, Ms. Trish might have felt scared or uncertain, but her Chick-fil-A family saw to it that she never felt alone or uncared for during the ordeal.

When the day finally came for Ms. Trish to go in for surgery, the restaurant crew took a moment during the busiest part of their day to do something amazing for her.

In a now-viral Facebook post, fellow Chick-fil-A Belmont employee Susan Lackey Norris said “there have been numerous times that [Ms. Trish] has stopped what she was doing and prayed with our customers.”

So, at 11:52 AM, when Ms. Trish was scheduled to be in surgery, everyone in the restaurant, including the customers, stopped what they were doing to pray for her.

“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,” he said to those present in the packed eatery.

“Dear Lord, please just protect Ms. Trish as she begins her surgery today. Please give the surgeons a steady hand as they perform the needed surgery on her,” the manager, who has not been identified, continued. “Please keep everybody in the surgery room, let them be at their best today and have sharp minds and clear heads as they work on her. We need her back here.”

“She is our light. She is the pillar in the community for us and everybody here loves her so much and please, please protect her and get her back here to brighten our days, all of our days, as soon as you can,” he concluded, sending up the prayer in Jesus’ name.

The total silence in the dining area was finally broken when everyone sealed their prayer with a heartfelt “amen.”

Going through any trial, let alone one as severe as a battle with cancer, can be life-shaking, but there is tremendous peace and comfort in knowing that God has us in the palm of His hand and that the prayer warriors in our lives are lifting us up before Him.
