On the morning of employee Trish’ surgery, her manager at Chick-Fil-A decided that they needed to take a moment to lift the procedure and doctors up in prayer. In a loud voice, he asked both the patrons and staff if they wished to join in a prayer for Ms. Trish as she entered surgery.
“One of our team members is starting surgery right now for breast cancer and we’d like to say a short prayer for her, if you’d like to join us.”
It’s obvious that Trish has had a big impact on both her team and their regular customers. Without any hesitation, the entire restaurant bowed their head to offer prayers and thoughts for a friend.
“She is our light, she is the pillar in the community for us and everybody here loves her so much.”
Fellow employee Susan Lackey Norris posted the video to social media and it wasn’t long before it went viral. Her post shared:
“…There have been numerous times that she has stopped what she was doing and prayed with our customers. So at 11:52, we stopped what we were doing and prayed for Ms Trish.”
The support for the Chick-Fil-A’s decision to offer a time of prayer for Trish has been overwhelming. Even those who may not have a belief in prayer were moved that so many people cared so deeply for this employee.
