A little girl in Cedar Hill, Texas, stopped two officers during a lunch break to pray with them, highlighting black faith communities’ complex responses to discussions of police force and community relations.

A little girl in the Dallas area interrupted two police officers at lunch with a request they had never heard before. Five-year-old Chloe wanted to pray with them.

Her dad snapped a photo and shared it with the Cedar Hill Police Department.

“Marshals Herron and Wallace admit they’ve never had anyone pray with them and that her prayer was so beautiful,” the department wrote on the Facebook page Tuesday.

The photo has been shared almost 5,000 times on Facebook and captures black churches’ complex response to the discussion over police relations with minority communities.
