A photo of a little girl praying with two police officers in a restaurant has charmed the internet.
The police department in Cedar Hill, Texas, posted the photo to its Facebook page last week under the headline: “A Little Girl’s Prayer.”
The post explains that the officers were eating lunch when a 5-year-old named Chloe approached them and asked if she could pray with them.
The photo shows Chloe, with a big white bow on her head, holding hands with the officers. All three bowed their heads.
Never miss a local story.
The department also tweeted the photo.
The officers “admit they've never had anyone pray with them and that her prayer was so beautiful,” the Facebook post reads.
Chloe’s father took the photo and sent it to the department, which is near Dallas.
These are typical of the hundreds comments people have left on the Facebook page:
“I have no idea where this place is, I live in Kansas City, Missouri. This story brought tears to my table here at a local restaurant. Makes me want to pack up and move to your town.”
“What a sensitive heart this child has, praying for these officers! Blessings on this precious child, these officers and her remarkable parents.”
