Asking mall Santa for a Christmas miracle

It happened at the Dutch Square shopping mall in Columbia, SC, this month. Prestyn Barnette, 4, waited in line until it was his turn to see Santa. Then he told St. Nick he wanted a Lionel train set, and one thing more. Would Santa pray with him? Prestyn's grandma told him about a two-month old boy named Knox Stine who is fighting for his life in a hospital in Las Vegas. Would Santa pray with him for a Christmas miracle for baby Knox?

                                                                                                                                        Instagram Photo
Those who believe Santa Claus and healing through prayer are both imaginary may find this photo ironic, but others may see more. The photo went viral on social media and Prestyn unwittingly helped bring many prayers to baby Knox. Even Knox's mother, Mindi Stine, saw the picture.

"I thought it was beautiful," she told ABC. "It spoke to my heart. Even though I am experiencing pain that is unbelievable, that brought joy to me." Baby Knox's family continues to hope for his recovery, and if this picture proves anything, it proves the prophecy of Isaiah, "a little child shall lead them."
