Spontaneous Prayer Breaks Out At A Drive-Thru
Usually when a drive-thru comes to a complete halt, tempers flare and horns start honking. But as folks waited in line one day at a Dutch Bros Coffee drive-thru, the cause of the holdup was truly beautiful to behold. And thankfully one of the bystanders snapped a photo of the touching moment, which is now making its rounds across social media!
The sight of a group of teens huddled together with arms outstretched in prayer brings to life the scripture from Matthew 5:4:
“Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.”
The Facebook post explains that the young woman in the vehicle had just lost her husband the previous night. And as she waited for her coffee, grief took hold and she understandably began to fall apart.
The employees could have hurriedly given the tearful woman her coffee and moved her along. But instead, they dropped everything to be patient in tribulation and steadfast in prayer (Romans 12:12). To see such compassion and such faithfulness in this group of kids completely renewed my faith in our youth.
We don't always know what to do or say when someone is going through a difficult time. But this just goes to show how much power there is in prayer. Just taking the time to pray with someone who is hurting is enough. Turn it over to the Almighty Healer, and let Him do the rest!
“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God.” 2 Corinthians 1:3-4
