When these Dutch Bros Coffee workers saw that the woman in the drive-thru was “falling apart,” they decided to extend their hands out to her car and pray for her.

Along with the picture above, Barbara shared these words detailing the emotional encounter:

Dear Dutch Bros Coffee, snapped this picture while waiting in line at the Dutch Bros on 138th Avenue today. Turns out the young lady in line ahead of us lost her 37-year-old husband last night. When the DB guys & gals noticed she was falling apart, they stopped everything and prayed with her for several minutes, invited her to come back for prayer and support, as well as anything else that she might need. Prayers for the young family, and you know where to stop for coffee!

In a day and age where prayer is shut out of schools and getting football coaches fired, it’s pretty amazing to see a group of young people go above and beyond their minimum wage duty by boldly praying for a stranger in need.

Alisha Wisby is who the Dutch Bros employees prayed over that morning. After the photo unintentionally went viral, she said their prayer was exactly what she needed.

Both on our highest peaks and in our deepest valleys, prayer is the language of heaven that fuses us ever more deeply with God. Like these young men, let us remember that there truly is no greater gift we can offer our neighbors.
