A North Carolina restaurant is gaining some national attention, after someone posted a picture of their receipt on Facebook. It’s not a ridiculous menu item, or an enormously generous tip; it’s an offering. Patrons of Mary’s Gourmet Diner in Winston-Salem can get a 15 percent discount for praying before their meal.

A Christian radio station based in Orlando posted an image of the receipt to its Facebook page, and it’s gotten thousands of shared. The post reads, A friend of ours just shared her receipt from lunch where she got a discount for praying in public!!! How cool is that?”

On Mary’s Gourmet Diner Facebook page, they state that all religions that worship would receive a discount for praying at their restaurant.
