One community is being thanked for praying for a 12-year-old boy who collapsed during a little league practice.
12-year-old William Burton suffered a cardiac arrest on the field and was rushed to King’s Daughters Medical Center. He was then airlifted to Children’s Hospital Medical Center.
“It was chaos,” said Grayson First Baptist Church pastor Josh Schmidt. “So much was happening, and he was in bad shape.”
Schmidt also said that the boy’s mother, Amy Burton, “began quoting scripture and singing.” The child suffers from long QT syndrome and is prone to heart issues.
Kentucky Today reported not only the family’s powerful prayers and William’s prayer warrior grandma Teri Huffine but also said that the community prayed hard for the boy. He was also getting lots of prayers from Zimbabwe.
“We know God is hearing the prayers of His people on behalf of William!,” Derrick and Amy Burton shared on Facebook.
“We are humbled by the love and support all over the world!” his continued. “Our beautiful son is in a fight for his life … Our God is a Mighty Healer and he loves William more than any of us can ever imagine. We feel your prayers and thank you for your love and support for our boy and our family.”
Miracles took place in the boy’s body in the days leading up to Easter Sunday. The community also sent him cards wishing him fast recovery. “It feels amazing that I have been loved like this my whole life,” he told Kentucky Today.
William finally went home during the holiday weekend. His mother said: “Easter has always been special to us. We knew the power of the resurrection through our salvation but the fact that God saved William brought it out even more.”
The family is thankful for all doctors and nurses, and also for everyone’s prayers.
