‘Because You Prayed, We Paid’: Mother Overwhelmed by Stranger Who Covered Her Meal Because of THIS!

With all of the stories about bad people out there, it can be nice to remember that there are good people, too. And when one family went out to eat in Oklahoma one morning for breakfast and said a prayer before eating, they encountered one of them.

An Oklahoma family who bowed their heads in prayer before eating breakfast at a restaurant that is known for having some of the best eggs in the area were served a side of kindness from a stranger.

The family were about to enjoy their food at Jimmy’s Egg in Yukon but paused to pray before digging in – and an anonymous stranger who was also at the diner noticed.

After they finished their meal and asked for the bill, the family received a check inscribed with a note instead of the amount that they owed.

The note read: ‘Because you prayed, we paid. Continue to raise your sons in Christ. God Bless.’

Jimmy’s Egg assistant manager Sherry Thompson said the mother was ‘in tears’, KFOR reported.

Thompson said families praying and anonymous good deeds are common occurrences at Jimmy’s.

She said: ‘We see a lot of people paying it forward, buying for other people.

‘Especially coming holiday time, we see a lot of that, we do.

‘Because we have really good customers.

‘You feel better as a server to know that there are nice, kind people out there.’

Paying for someone’s meal is such a small gesture, but it can clearly mean the world to someone. Just knowing that there is someone willing to exhibit such kindness can give us real hope for the world and for humanity.
