. . . After learning about the role of law enforcement in the riots, Trey told his mother that he wanted to pray for the officers.
. . .Brittany posted the first photo of Trey praying with a police officer on Facebook on June 1. “The current state of our city breaks my heart into so many pieces,” she wrote, “[b]ut this little boy restores it every time.”

After Brittany’s first photo went viral, the tables turned; all of a sudden, Tulsa Police Department (TPD) officers began actively seeking out the 7-year-old at public events, and even at his own home, in order to pray with him.
. . . According to a Facebook post by Brittany, as of June 16, Trey has prayed with a grand total of 147 police officers and counting. According to KJRH, Trey’s goal is to pray with every single police officer at the Tulsa police department, 800.
. . . Through his ongoing movement, Brittany told The Western Journal that “all he hopes is that other people think to pray for their own officers and their own towns.”
