CEDAR HILL (CBSDFW.COM) – A touching moment between a couple of Cedar Hill Marshals and a little girl was caught on camera, then shared via the department’s Facebook page.

Five-year-old Chloe approached Cedar Hill Marshal’s Herron and Wallace while they were having lunch. Neither Herron nor Wallace have had a child approach them and ask to pray before… and they were happy to oblige.

Both officers described Chloe’s prayer as “beautiful”.

The child’s father snapped a photo of the compassionate act and the rest is viral history with close to 8,000 people reacting to it.
