When a graduation speech in rural Alabama produced a spontaneous prayer to a healing God I wanted to stand up and clap, too.

Senior Christian Crawford struck YouTube fame and received national media attention for his public appeal to God during a medical emergency in the audience. His prayer went viral after he delivered it to the crowd during Clay Chalkville High School’s graduation ceremony this past May.

Speaking to more than 1,000 people, the graduate said the words just came to his thought to help the woman in her need: “We know that prayer is power and that God is able. We pray right now that whatever is going on that You will fix it. God we pray that you will heal it. We know that you are a God who is a fixer. You are a God who is a healer…”

Later it was reported that the woman in the audience, who had suffered a seizure, was doing fine.
