Waitress Notices That One Of Her Tables Is Praying Before The Meal, Adds A Line To Their Receipt staff May 24, 2020 Uncategorized 3 You Might Like There are a number of businesses that declared their affiliation with the Christian religion. When you come up with the list, you’ll probably include Hobby Lobby and Chick-fil-A. Not only do these stores shutter their doors on Sunday, to give their employees a mandated day of rest, but they also ascribe to other religious principles as well. But one restaurant in North Carolina proves that they take their commitment to the principles of religion by offering a generous discount to any customers who offer a prayer before enjoying the bounty of their meal. The restaurant is located in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. And when a server at Mary’s Gourmet Diner notices customers praying at the table before a meal, they make sure to give a 15 percent discount off the bill. Owner Mary Haglund attests that the discount is nothing new but something she has been giving to her praying customers for four years. Mary doesn’t advertise the reduction in price. She prefers to have it happen organically. She wants to reward people who pray in her restaurant and give them a little surprise when they get the bill at the end of their meal. In a way, it’s her way to bless them in return for bringing prayers into her establishment. Jordan Smith noticed her discount when he offered a prayer before his meal. As a faithful customer, he shared a photo of his receipt on Facebook and gave credit to Mary for being so generous. Before long, the world discovered Mary’s discount and Orlando radio station Z88.3 Orlando shared the image to their followers. The receipt showed a subtotal of $40.50, but after the 15 percent “praying in public” discount, Jordan Smith’s bill dropped substantially. Smith said she had no clue the diner was so generous with its religious customers. “(We) prayed over our meal and the waitress came over at the end of the meal and said, ‘Just so you know, we gave you a 15 percent discount for praying,’ which I’d never seen before,” Smith told HLN. Nevertheless, Smith believed that Mary deserved attention for her policy and shared an image of the receipt online. She never expected the response that followed. “I just innocently posted it to my Facebook page, and it’s been really fun to see where it’s gone from there.” Although Mary is happy that the public adores her praying policy, she just wants there to be more good in the world. In an interview with The Blaze, Mary said: “For me, every plate of food is a gift. And I never take that for granted, and when I see someone in a restaurant honoring their gratefulness at my table, it touches my heart.” Mary describes herself as a very spiritual person. “We are so fortunate in this country. It’s just a moment of faithfulness about the plate of food.” If giving a 15 percent discount encourages more gratitude, Mary is all for it. She hopes her policy inspires others to pray more. What do you think about this restaurant policy? Read more: AWM 3 Responses Joel May 25, 2020 WTF????? Reply Ron Hopkins May 25, 2020 I think this lady who prayed is correct that the plate of food is a gift. Yes you pay for it but your blessed to be born in this country and blessed to have food anytime you wish. There are billions of people who struggle to get food every day who don’t live in America. Think of how lucky you are! I’m not religious, but all I’m saying is how lucky we are! If you disagree then you either don’t really understand reality, or you’ve been brainwashed into believing your owed things from other people. Yes most of us go through every day not noticing the abundance around us, or the handicaps other people live with every hour of the day. If your fairly healthy and can think for yourself then thank God or whatever you want,or don’t thank anyone, but be grateful you have what you have. Because no matter how bad you think you have it, there are soooo many people out there that would kill to be in your shoes! Also in the other post…WTF!!!! What is that to? You don’t like religion? You think these people are weird? You making fun of these people? What is your problem? Nuff said!
