When Paige Price stopped at the Panama City Beach Waffle House for breakfast one morning, she was completely moved by the employees’ touching daily ritual.
The woman overhead the manager say, “It’s shift change.” That’s when all the employees gathered in a circle for a quick prayer. Price decided to discreetly snap a photo and uploaded it to Facebook.
“I’m pretty sure I had a very weird look on my face because I had to ask myself a few times if this was real, if they were really about to pray before each of them went their separate ways, if they were really about to PRAY and not care who they offended,” she wrote on Facebook. “They gathered in their little circle, spoke a soft prayer and went on about their business.”
Price’s Facebook post quickly went viral, and thousands have since shared her picture. (As of today, the post has been shared over 268,500 times!)
“Why am I posting this? The world that I’ve grown up in for 23 years is changing fast and to see this just made my heart smile. Maybe there’s hope for our country after all. I applaud these people for standing up for what they believe in and not worrying about offending others or what others may think/say about them,” Price added.
If you were moved by this touching photo, too, please SHARE this story with everyone you know.
