…… The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.
There really is power in prayer. This example of a Missouri mom praying her dead son back to life depicts this in clear demonstration of the authorities of the believer in Christ.
Her 14-year-old was rescued after spending 15 minutes submerged in an icy lake. After doctors performed CPR for 27 minutes with no success, his mother came into the room and started praying loudly, calling on the Holy Spirit. He was dead for 45 minutes. What happens next is a true miracle from God.
“He was dead for 45 minutes.”
That’s what the doctor who treated 14-year-old John Smith said after paramedics rescued the teen who spent 15 minutes submerged in an icy lake.
Dr. Kent Sutterer and his team performed CPR on John for 27 minutes with no success. The question was raised: how long should they continue?
His mother then came into the room and started praying loudly.
What happened next, defies explanation.
“I don’t remember what all I said,” recalls John’s mother, Joyce Smith. “But I remember, ‘Holy God, please send your Holy Spirit to save my son. I want my son, please save him,'” she said.
“They hadn’t been getting a pulse at that time, so all of a sudden I heard them saying, ‘We got a pulse, we got a pulse.'”
His heart restarted.
Doctors were worried how much brain function he would have, but at this point it doesn’t seem like there will be a problem. He’s recovering, walking and getting physical therapy.
Dr. Garrett said, “It’s a bonafide miracle.”
