Chick-fil-A has always been known for its religious spirit, and has never been shy about letting it be known. The company is so serious, it provides its employees time off on Sundays so they can spend time resting and with their family as the Lord intended.
But that spirit doesn’t end there: Chick-fil-A employees and locations are praised on a consistent basis for upholding their values, with countless guests praising their kindness, their willingness to go the extra mile and so much more.
Most recently, a North Carolina Chick-fil-A took time out of a busy day at the restaurant to ask God to watch over a beloved coworker.
The manager of the location asked co-workers and customers to join him in prayer, according to KSAZ.
Ms. Trish, a team member at the location, needed some support, as she was undergoing surgery for breast cancer at that very moment.
When the manager asked everyone inside the restaurant to take part in the prayer for Ms. Trish if they wanted to, customers that filled the restaurant didn’t hesitate to do so.
The manager humbly remarked that he wasn’t the best at praying aloud, but he was going to do his best.
“Dear Lord, please protect Ms. Trish as she gets her surgery today,” he began.
The restaurant fell silent as customers and employees alike came together to send Ms. Trish the support and light she needed on such a trying day.
The manager at Chick-fil-A showed his appreciation for his coworker and all that she does at the restaurant, and asked God to make sure the surgeons had steady hands and clear minds that day.
“We need her back,” he continued. “She is our light, and she is part of the community here, and everyone loves her so much.”
The moving moment the community came together to support one of their own, regardless of their own beliefs, was posted to Facebook.
While many people love Chick-fil-A for their food, this video shows that this restaurant and all that visit it and work there have heart.
We wish Ms. Trish a speedy recovery and know that her co-workers are looking forward to seeing her return to Chick-fil-A very soon. Get well soon, Ms. Trish!
