Starbucks Barista Prays for Customer In The Drive-Thru

A barista working at Starbucks, was seen praying for a customer in a Drive-Thru in Arkansas by a mother and her teenage son.


Tanya Hinsley and her son were waiting in line in the drive-thru, when they saw Carrie, praying for a customer in front of the line. The mother and son were on their way to practice the son’s driving skills, who had just received his driving license.

The mother captured the moment in a photo and posted on Facebook. Since then, the post have received positive comments and hundreds of likes. The post has now been shared over 400 times with people commenting on her beautiful gesture, the experience they had with her in the drive thru and how she made their day.

“My son and I were having a discussion about how we loved that she stopped what she is doing and was bold in her faith and cared enough to pray with someone,” Hinsley said. “This is when I decided to snap a picture but caught the very end of the prayer and decided to share this positive moment in hopes of brightening someone’s day.”

“This act of kindness and boldness in faith given out to others daily by people like Carrie, gives me hope and reminds myself and hopefully others that being kind and praying for someone doesn’t cost anything,” she said. “We never know when something we say can help save someone … literally.”

I don’t really know what’s going on with Shadrachs and I have my own beliefs about the library thing and that’s just…

Later, Tanya met with Carrie, whose heart has been filled with the kind words of the people and was blown away by such beautiful and kind comments from them.

“She has blessed just by being so kind, praying for others, and simply being a light for Jesus”.

“You are the light of the world—like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden. In the same way, let your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father. Matthew 5:14‭, 16 (NLT)
