Many Christians believe in the power of healing prayer, even if they’ve never witnessed it.
At The River Church on Holt School Road, members not only believe in healing prayer, they say it took place in front of their eyes. It happened Dec. 13 when a young mother brought her severely disabled 8-month-old baby to church.
The girl had been shaken by a babysitter in the summer and was largely unresponsive after emerging from a medically induced coma.
Kristie Hammonds of Raleigh brought her daughter forward to be prayed over by Pastor Sheryl Brady.
As captured on video and posted on YouTube, the girl, named Christiana, was lying in her mother’s arms with her eyes shut as Brady began praying. Soon a packed house began speaking in tongues, waving hands, shouting and pleading with God for the girl’s recovery.
