CEDAR HILL, Texas — It was a lunch break they'll likely never forget.

Two officers in Cedar Hill, Texas, met an unexpected guest while they were grabbing a bite to eat.

According to the police department's Facebook page, Marshals Herron and Wallace had just sat down at their table when they were approached by 5-year-old Chloe.

She had a very specific request: she asked if she could pray with them before they ate.

Of course they agreed, and the photo taken by Chloe's dad, now posted on Facebook, has been liked and shared thousands of times.

One person commented, "Makes me want to pack up and move to your town. She is a great ambassador for your town."

Chloe's dad Jared also commented, thanking everyone for their kind words and saying in part.

"The appreciation goes both ways, and we thank you and your fellow officers for your service because it extends beyond protection, and for two little girls it's connecting with real life heroes," he wrote.
