The faith of a little boy was on full display at a Waffle House in Alabama a few weeks ago. 

WSFA-TV reports, 5-year-old Josiah Duncan and his mom, Ava Faulk were dining at the restaurant when something special happened.

"We saw a man who was dirty holding a bag with his bike outside," Faulk recalled.

Josiah was so troubled by the man's appearance he started peppering his mom with questions.

"He's homeless," the little boy's mother explained. Josiah followed up with more questions and concern about the individual.

He then insisted his mom buy the stranger a good meal. She listened, and then obliged.

"He came in and sat down, and nobody really waited on him," Faulk explained. "So Josiah jumped up and asked him if he needed a menu because you can't order without one." 

When the man was assured he could have anything he wanted. He got a burger with the works.

But before the man could take the first bite, Josiah insisted on doing something.

"I wanted to say the blessing with him," Duncan told WSFA.

Josiah did, publicly, with 11 other customers watching. Josiah sang the blessing as loud as his little voice could muster.

"God our Father, God our Father, we thank you, we thank you, for our many blessings, for our many blessings, Amen, Amen."

"The man cried. I cried. Everybody cried," Faulk admitted.
