Faith in the midst of crisis is a beautiful thing, for it is often a crisis that truly tests our beliefs and teaches us about the undeniable power of prayer.

With the new faith-inspired film “Breakthrough” released this year, we are seeing powerful prayer from many different angles. Now the amazing community of Grayson, Kentucky, is being thanked for praying for a young man who collapsed during a little league practice.

William Burton, 12 years old, suffered a cardiac arrest on the field on April 9. He was taken to King’s Daughters Medical Center and soon was airlifted to Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, Kentucky Today reported.

“It was chaos,” Grayson First Baptist Church pastor Josh Schmidt told Kentucky Today. “So much was happening, and he was in bad shape.”

Schmidt went on to say that William’s mom, Amy Burton, “began quoting scripture and singing.” The boy suffers from long QT syndrome and is prone to heart problems.

Kentucky Today has followed the story closely. The news outlet not only shared about the family’s strong prayers — including William’s prayer warrior grandmother Teri Huffine — but also reported that the community and beyond took to praying for him. He was even getting prayers from Zimbabwe!

“We know God is hearing the prayers of His people on behalf of William!” Derrick and Amy Burton wrote on Facebook April 10.

“We are humbled by the love and support all over the world!” his parents went on. “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.”

Miracle after miracle took place in William’s body in the days leading up to Easter Sunday. The community even sent cards wishing him well. “It feels amazing that I have been loved like this my whole life,” William shared with Kentucky Today.

William was able to go home just in time for the holiday weekend. …
