It feels different when you pray with others than when you pray alone.
You feel safe, connected, and supported during the group prayer. You share your feelings, beliefs, and thoughts.
Different from a scheduled group prayer, an unplanned group prayer gives you an instant emotional attachment and unexpected love.
Chloe, a five-year-old girl, showed the best example of an unscheduled group prayer at a restaurant.
This all happened when, one day, two police officers came into a restaurant in Texas.
As Marshals Herron and Wallace, officers of the Cedar Hill Police Department, were having lunch, Chloe approached their table. She was wearing a white dress and a big white bow in her hair.
Confused, these two police officers looked at her. Then, the 5-year-old asked this unexpected question.
Before they eat lunch, she asked them whether she could pray with them.
Impressed by this little girl, both of the police officers merrily agreed.
Jared Chenevert, Chloe’s dad, took a picture of this moment and proudly posted on Facebook. The photo got great reactions for weeks.
“We can’t thank you enough for all the wonderful comments about our daughter. The real thanks go to the officers, who took the time out of their busy day to bless our daughters, Chloe and Clarke. The appreciation goes both ways, and we thank you and your fellow officers for your service, because it extends beyond protection, and for two little girls it’s connecting with real-life heroes.” Chenevert wrote on the Cedar Hill Police Department’s Facebook page.
One of the comments says, “This story brought tears to my table here at a local restaurant. Makes me want to pack up & move to your town. She is a great ambassador for your town.”
Chloe’s prayer even went on the news!
