Prayers Pour Over Viral Snapshot of Baristas Praying for Woman Who Lost Husband is Exactly What She Needed

The internet is pouring love over an amazing story that took place at a drive-thru coffee shop in Vancouver, Wash. Whether you believe in prayer or not, this will make you feel warm and fuzzy all over.

Who: Pierce Dunn, Evan Freeman and Jacob Hancock, baristas at Dutch Bros. Coffee, who prayed for customer Alisha Wisbey

What: According to KPTV-TV, Alisha Wisbey lost her 37-year-old husband to heart disease this past March. In an attempt to feel normal again, she went to a Dutch Bros. Coffee shop to “feel normal again.” When a barista who knew her husband was approved recently for a heart transplant asked how he was doing, she broke down in tears. Employees Pierce Dunn, Evan Freeman and Jacob Hancock reached out of the drive-thru window, held her hand and asked if they could pray for her.

This act of compassion and kindness was captured by Barbara Danner, who was in the car behind her and posted it on the Dutch Bros. Facebook page. The photo went viral immediately.

Dutch Bros. Coffee workers in Vancouver, Wash., pray for a customer who recently lost her husband.

Danner wrote, “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!”

Sometimes you can’t see, touch or capture the human spirit. Thanks to this picture, you’re able to witness it in action.

She told KPTV-TV, “I saw it, I was looking at the picture and I started to cry.”

That picture not only reminded Alisha of how many good people are out there, but it’s also given her a priceless tribute to Adam.

“Something spiritual or something beautiful like that, you can’t always see it, at that moment,” she said. “But I can now because I have a picture of it, and it’s another way I can remember him.”

Where: Dutch Bros. Coffee in Vancouver, Wash.

When: March 19, 2016

More info: I saw this story on Facebook and had to share with you. What a shot of inspiration indeed! Read more about this uplifting tale:

I believe in the power of prayer and sending people good vibes. We are all made up of energy and when you intend good things, think good thoughts or say a little prayer, I believe God and the universe responds. Some things we can’t explain, like love and positive thoughts, but I know they exist and can change our physical, mental and spiritual selves.

I love the ripples in this story — the prayers and the snapshot that was uploaded to social media. Yes, social media for social good!

Anybody can make a difference in someone’s day. Pierce and Evan literally reached out and said a little prayer to help Alisha cope with her loss.

Amen to that!

Onward,
