A Miracle… Baby Brought Out Of A Coma By Prayer

Posted by Media Outrage on December 23rd, 2009

Don’t tell us miracles don’t happen!  This young lady’s baby was abused by a baby-sitter.  The little girl was shaken by the sitter and put into a coma.  The baby’s mother went against doctor’s wishes and took her out of the hospital to church and had Pastor Sheryl Brady pray for her.  Just watch for yourself…  Merry Christmas…

      all the time.

      • sc42

        Except for when he allows a 2 month old baby to be shaken into a coma, right?

  • Kingston

    Didn’t have to watch the video for confirmation. I already know that he heals!!!!

  • CaramelKiss14

    Wow. I’m trying to type through my tears. Amazingly wonderful.

  • Truly23

    I saw this the other day–that preacher was serious with hers. And yes, prayer changes things..

  • http://mediaoutrage brynnrock

    Praise God for that child, but that babysitter would need someone to lay some hands on that hoe.

    • ucanb2

      I agree it would have taken a lot to keep me from hurting the person that hurt my baby!

    I got the chills, OMG for real.

  • Stubabyq

    What a mighty God we serve! All praises to the Most High!

  • MissTX85

    I’m gonna pass on believing the whole thing and watching the video because most of the time stuff like this is just some type of stunt.

    But if in fact this is true (I’m gonna Google the story, get all the facts), then I am happy the baby pulled through. Nothing wrong with believing God’s word over man’s.


    MissTX85 if you think the power of prayer is a stunt then I feel real sorry for you. God’s greatness and goodness is real my sister, only if you believe, trust me I personally know what the power of prayer can do, Im still here responding to your text, when doctors told me i wouldn’t make it and that was in 1992. PRAISE GOD IN ALL HIS GLORY.

    • MissTX85

      No need to feel sorry for me. Just reread what I wrote.

      I wasn’t saying that “the power of prayer or God’s greatness and goodness” was a stunt. Check my resume on here. I’m a strong believer in God and his power. What I was saying was I think a lot of times people will make up an ailment and then claim to have been delivered from it. It’s happen too many times and a lot of times it’s hard to tell what’s really true.

      Like this. I mean I understand you not wanting to just take a doctor’s word over your beliefs but to just take a child out the hospital while she’s still in a coma is:

      1. Probably against the law. And most likely NOT possible.


      2. Dumb as hell! (Seeing as God made medical technology for a reason.)

      No matter how much faith I have in Him, I’m not gonna take my comatose child from the one place He made for him/her to get properly cared for. That in itself is not believing in His power. But that’s my opinion.

      Still for all we know that child could’ve just been full of Benadryl or something and the mother’s looking for some type of attention.

      • lowridaz

        MissTX85, I agree with you on this. I said the same thing when i read that, about her taking that baby out of that hospital like that to get prayed over, because im sure the PASTOR would of visited that hospital and did the same thing, prayed for her! i to, am lookin at this sideways. I need to know more about this situation here.

      • beatbanga77

        If God says bring my baby out of that bhospital to the church against the dr’s wishes then thats exactly what i’m doing.. Its not about the Dr’s the laws and not even about me… I would have to do what I’m told… sorry i’m not so quick to say this is fake..

      • Yvette

        I agree with you Beatbanga! I don’t know whether the video is real or not but i know that GOD is a HEALER! And if i was in her situation and i was led to remove my child from the hospitals and take her to church for prayer than im going to do it! Look in the bible and see how many times GOD asked his people to do something that required FAITH to do and where they would look absolutely CRAZY! GOD doesn’t work in the real of LIMITS. The doctors wake up everymorning because he allows it. So screw the doctors because they are merely PRACTICING MEDICINE. GOD KNOWS ALL.

      • MissTX85

        I understand what both of you are saying. But like Lowridaz said, why take the baby from the hospital when the pastor could have come there? And ya’ll saying forget the doctors and everything, okay that’s fine. But the word says God hears your call no matter where you are and if just 2 or 3 gather in His name. So that is why this doesn’t sit right with me. The mother making headlines cause she took her comatose child from a hospital to the church for prayer. Like I said I’m a strong believer in His word and power but this just sounds like the mother wanted some attention or something. That’s all I was saying.

      • Yvette

        MissTX I feel you with the word saying where 2 or 3 are gathered, and im not saying whether the video is real, im just saying that it might be because we never know what was impressed upon this young woman’s heart to do. Doctors told my family to pull the plug on a relative of mine just a few months ago because they were in a coma and the doctors were saying that they would not wake up. They were in the coma for several weeks which didn’t look good at all and actually looked like what they were saying was true but after much prayer and supplication GOD woke them up. The doctors were confused. So all im saying is that when things look impossible with doctors they are possible with GOD.

        • Lavonne

          I can’t help but comment after reading the many post about what the readers think of the miracle ,real or not and comments regarding the Mother’s choice especially the comment that says taking her from the hospital was as dumb as H***. Of all that I read this comment was the saddest. God says that we ought to love one another even as he loves us, The poster says I am a strong believer in God and His power but omitted demonstrating God’s great agape love. I also thought of when Jesus arrived on the scene to speak to the dead body of Lazarus. The word says he asked for the stone to be rolled away. In fact He could have very well spoken to the stone, why not, He spoke to Lazarus to come forward. I believe God uses everything we encounter to build our faith. As posted what if God spoke into the mother’s spirit to take her baby. Just as one post read she would do it. I would also. I can’t judge anyone for doubting so many things happen to fill our heads and hearts with doubt. However, it is heartbreaking when Christians attack even the possibility of a miracle judging this Pastor and the mother harshly. I also pray that as a whole we realize people who desire and those who don’t want to know God tap in for thoughts and knowledge from those that are suppose to know him. Therefore since we are to have the mind of Christ and he is not the author of confusion we must remain sensitive to this. I agree with everyone that posted, whether this is an accurately recorded miracle or not God is a healer, He is the only healer. He is all power!I will add for the post who said God doesn’t need anyone to touch to heal;You are absolutely right, however when we lay hands on the sick (as bible believing Christians)we are not crediting ourselves for the healing we are merely exercising our faith in the power of God. I also believe if this was not real God will be God in the situation. We should just continue to pray for Christina and her family.
          I end this post prayerful that we all sincerely desire the love of Christ in our hearts and we love one another quicker than we judge. After all God’s infinite love is what has created us so shouldn’t we long to reflect our Father’s heart.

      • Lowridaz

        I AGREE with all comments , my thing is GOD works miracles in hospitals over prayer just as well as out in church, he answers to all , where ever they may be! she may have had her reasons and I am not knockin that at all becuase bottom line is.. .she did what she had to do FOR HER BABY! and i am for that. but god will touch that baby in that hospital just as he would if she was in that church.

  • Nicole

    Oh wow.. Thats so dumb.. Im a nurse no hospital in the world would allow a mother to take her child out of the hospital while the child is in a coma.. U have got to be kidding me.. This whole thing is bullshit… I hate ppl that lie about dumb shit.. This shit dont work that can not heal anyone there just fake..

    • http://mediaoutrage brynnrock

      SHut the fuck up Nicole with no damn insight and go rinse out a bedpan.

      • Nicole

        Lol cute..

      • Lowridaz

        LOL @ Brynnrock!!! lmaooo damn you went in hard on homegirl

    • bren45

      I agree with Nicole. This child had to have feeding tubes. Because she is an infant, there is a lot involved with a coma infant. So did she remove the tubes? How long was she away from the hospital. Did a nurse go with her? If this was a fake then the Lord will deal with them. But if nt them this was alsome. I just wish this child the best in life. I believe in mircles. But this just does not add up. If this child was in a coma then the mom did not seem to change her expressions. If that was my child and she woke up from a coma I would be really touched. I would be rejoicing.I would be in tears. I know every body has different emotions. But she did not change her expressions at all. Just makes u wonder.

  • Yvonne

    I too know God can do all things if you believe, but I’m gonna go with Miss TX85 on this one. For some reason, this just don’t set right with me. If I’m wrong then I will be the first to say it.

    Baby’s rally sparks joy

    DURHAM 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.

    Twenty minutes later, the mother returned with the baby. This time little Christiana opened her eyes, stuck out her tongue, and seemed able to respond to sight and sound.

    “The healer is in the house!” shouted Brady, a Pentecostal preacher trained by Dallas megachurch pastor T.D. Jakes. “He can heal you, and you, and all of you.”

    Nearly half a million viewers have watched the YouTube segment, “A Christmas Miracle at The River.” The clip has given the little-known church instant celebrity, and a tough act to follow.

    At Sunday’s service, Brady and her followers did their best. After a prelude of rousing music and sermons, Brady presented the mother – who returned this time without the baby – with the keys to a Raleigh apartment and a check for one year’s rent, along with dining and bedroom sets, towels, pots and pans, and even a bucket with cleaning supplies.

    By the time the three-hour service was over, a church member popped up and added the keys to a car.

    “I want a complete, absolute, 100 percent miracle,” Brady said.

    Like other Pentecostals, Brady and her church believe the Holy Spirit bestows special gifts on Christians, such as the power to heal, prophesy and work miracles.

    But whether it was prayer or a gradual physical recovery that animated the baby is hard to tell.

    Meanwhile, Christiana is still fed through a gastric feeding tube. She cannot hold her head up, and for the time being, she resides at the Hilltop Home on New Bern Road in Raleigh, a residential center for children with profound developmental disabilities.

    Raleigh police arrested Tammy Danielle Evans, 22, of Raleigh on July 21 and charged her with felony child abuse in connection with the shaking incident, police spokesman Jim Sughrue said.

    ‘Power is in Jesus’

    Brady did not claim the baby was healed.

    As she explained to her followers Sunday, “Christiana was not in a coma per se that day.”

    Nor did Brady claim she was the agent of healing.

    “There’s no healing power in me,” she said. “All the healing power is in Jesus Christ.”

    But she did hold out hope something was unfolding.

    “It’s obvious to me, to the mother and to all the world that something significant happened that day right before our eyes,” she said. “It’s not a complete miracle, but it’s the beginning of one.”

    Hammonds said her daughter has never been more responsive. She’s awake for longer periods of time, seems to show some movement in her paralyzed right side, and for the first time this week made some gurgling baby talk noise.

    “I believe in prayer more than therapy,” said Hammonds who grew up in Monroe, near Charlotte. “Belief is what will get her to the next level.”

    Hammonds, who was laid off from a Sonic Drive-In after the baby’s trauma, has been renting a room in a boarding house on Avent Ferry Road. She has two other children who live with her mother in Monroe.

    During Sunday’s ecstatic service, members said they viewed the timing of the healing prayer – nearly two weeks before Christmas – as providential.

    “This is the tip of the iceberg,” said Reginald Arnold, a member. “We cannot go back to anything less. This is the beginning of something awesome.”

    • BJ. Davis

      In the video it is clear that the person who brought an alert Christiana to the pulpit is obviously not the same person who was initially holding her. The article claims that both women are Christiana’s mother.

      When the facts are missing or not clear, it’s easy for doubt to creep in. We’re such as visually stimulated society that walking by faith or witnessing something of this nature is often surreal… No matter how you flip it, God does heal. God does deliver. God does answer prayer. He is still God whether you believe or not.

  • Nina

    I almost cried. How can people abuse children, that’s so appalling. And, I guess prayer also would have been needed for me from beating that sitter’s ass.

    Yes…prayer to God is powerful.

  • MaliaMalia LOVES MO

    Im a believer in the power of prayer and regardless of whether this baby came out of a coma before or during this service, the baby is alive and well that is all that matters!!

    Merry christmas to those that believe in Christ!! and those that don’t well i wish you a wonderful weekend and best wishes for the new year!!

    take care!!!

  • CollegeGirl

    Wow. That Video just opened my eyes. Just when u begin to doubt… so amazing. I thank God for this. Its just the push I needed. Thanks MO and have a Happy Holiday.

    sorry not buying it..

  • ovadyah

    This was a counterfeit miracle! The News and Observer(local newspaper) and other agencies investigated this “miracle” and discovered many details were left out.

    1.)The Baby, Christiana, was not in a coma as a result of being shaken.

    2.)The Baby was in a medically induced coma BY DOCTORS

    3.)The Baby’s already awakening from her MEDICALLY INDUCED COMA

    4.)People slowling awakening from MEDICALLY INDUCED COMAS when Doctors decide to reduce the knock-out meds’

    5.)The baby was already going in and out of sleep before church.

    6.)The Baby still has to be fed through the gastric feeding tubes(THE REAL REASON WHY she wasn’t suppose to leave the hospital)

    7.)The Baby IS STILL HOSPITALIZED at The Hilltop Home at New Bern Road

    Yes, the baby was shaken and the offender arrested BUT SHE DIDN’T CAUSE THE COMA, IT CAUSED HER NECK TO SNAP. The neck was not healed! The Baby still can’t lift her head.
    The shaking also caused her brain to swell, THE DOCTORS INDUCED THE COMA AND THEY CAUSED THEY SLOWLY BROUGHT HER OUT OF IT. Please read about medically induced comas. It’s not new. MANY FOLKS HAVE RECOVERD better than the baby when medically induced. The baby’s injuries weren’t healed. This procedure is used for severe brain swelling and has been found useful when the victim REMAINS IN THE HOSPITAL AND ALLOWED TO QUIETLY RECOVER. However, the baby was not and still has the same injuries. Way to go mom!

    • BJ. Davis

      Wow, that’s a pretty good for medically induced AND paralyzed or an “unhealed neck”! The baby not only woke up completely during the service w/no physician in site to bring her out of it, but she was moving her head, eyes, tongue, both hands and even her fingers like a normal 8-month old (see 6:38 through 8:38in the video). So if she wasn’t doing that prior to the summer incident in the hours prior to arriving to church, she was completely limp all while they were praying and she’s not been doing anything for six months while medically comatose, IT’S STILL A MIRACLE! No surprise that it would take some time for her healing to completely manifest. She IS a baby and she has been inactive for 6 out of 8 months. Hopefully there will be follow-up stories so the naysers can just HUSHHHHH!

    Pre Note: I am a Real Christian in the fact that I believe that Jesus was and is the son of God and he is the only way into heaven. I have confessed my faith in him a long time ago and still hold to it.

    Now onto what I have to say about this.

    One week after the alleged miracle she him-hawed around and all but admitted that there was no miracle that day. The attached video has some pop-up comments that cant be avoided. Sorry but I could not locate one without them.

    As far as sleeping in a service it can and does happen. I see adults sleep all the time in church.

    Recently while searching for a new church to attend we visited a church that one of my wife’s friends goes to. As it turns out it was sanctified Baptist church full of showboats and charlatans. Granted there were a few truly spiritual people in there but most were not and you could spot them easily.

    Now to get to the point. Within 10 minutes of the service starting after we sat down from singing, my 8 year old fell asleep and stayed that way until we were a block from the church an hour later. That day there was at least one real work of God. He kept my child from having to see the scary side of when people go to far.

    As far as I am concerned Pastor Sheryl Brady is one of those charlatans. I’m sure some of the people in her audience (note the use of audience, not congregation) believes in her. If God wants a child to live he will do it without the touch of an over decorated and painted individual to do it for him. God does not need us to heal, we need him. Get it straight people.

    You can agree or disagree with me, it does not matter. God will continue to lead me away from these types in search of the real word.

    as i am now reading this thread I must say that your faith is not strong and you dont listen when HE speaks… GOD IS GREAT ALL THE TIME, remember to tell your problems, GOD is great, and not to tell god your problem is great…

  • firesign

    i see some valid points here that those who dont belive this video is real have made….however i believe it goes deeper than this video. there are people here that dont believe its real…o.k, fine. but do you believe in God??? if the answer is yes, then you shouldnt pass judgement, cause that is God’s job. any christian knows that. he will have his way with those that speak with forked tongues in his name. and furthermore, how can so say in one breath you believe in God, but discredit this video in the next….secondly, i will say that as a believer, i do know that miracles exist, personally.i was a victim of a violent crime back in 2003, where i was not only expected not to live, but actually temporarily died.the doctors had given up and i passed.a gun shot to the abdomen and a through and through hole in my vena cava and my blood type is o-negative.. and i am still here. i saw death, i saw the other side.and i know i eventually was placed in the hands of a good surgeon once the one doctor gave up, but i still died. i realized that God has a plan for me and always has. i have been blessed through so many moments, it is only right to give my father praise. i dont have the same background as some of these people that people consider over the top, but i know that jesus is real. someone asked why he would ever let that happen to the baby in the first place..i think that there must be some tragedy in life to serve as lessons and testimony for others. that in no means is to say the child was a lesson for someone, but if anything people will get a better hold on who watches their kids because where there is good, there is also evil. the devil was God’s child just like jesus was. so for those of you who dont believe, i respect your decision. but dont make such a case about it that yu discredit something that is good as a whole, because some people may have constructed a situation that may have not been true…because if that is what happened, it wont be the last time. i dont serve God because i want anything in return, i serve him because i am thankful for all i have and each day im granted. the good lessons and the hard ones, i am thankful for. God is love, and if you allow him into your heart and hold on to the goodness, you wont care so much about fakes or-not fakes, things you dont understand, or moments that may or may not be true.

  • a true believer

    I wish people would quit trying to judge rather something is real or not when it comes to healing..Jesus is real and he sits at the right hand of his father. She may have been put in a coma by meds but i truely believe that Jesus showed up and showed out..That baby was touched threw the prayers that rung out in that church..God is sooo awesome!!..He wont come when u want him but he will be on time. He have delievered me and kept me threw the good and the bad times. I know there have been many times when I didnt deserve his mercy and grace but he kept me. That child was blessed abundantly. So to those of who thinks that Jesus didnt touch this child then shame on you. I know he is real and I know that there is nothing he cant do. Thank you Lord for your son Jesus Christ that rose on the 3rd day. No man goes to the father except for by the son Jesus. Get your act together people and quit passing judgements because that is only for our father to do. Thank you Lord for your son Jesus Christ!!..He is truely a healer, a doctor, a lawyer, teacher, a preacher and everything else. My bright and morning star, the alpha and omega, the first and last, our everything. My life is in his hands because without him I am nothing. I am a true believer!!..Praise God for he is worthy at all times to be praised!!

  • a true believer

    ha..lets not forget how Jesus healed da blind, da dead, the woman that bleed continously, the man with leprosy, and so on..its all in the it up AND READ IT!!..the bible was put here as our manuel..Pray for understanding and read the holy words…

  • Prior faith

    And in March 2013 this mother was in the news saying she didn’t see much change in her child and that she believes the church OWES her more money.. The apartment, years rent, furnishings and car, not to mention the MIRACLE the church gave her weren’t enough.. And “God is good all the time”? Let me tell you.. My family were faithful Christians lived for God.. Heard every Sunday how Gid answers prayers, ” ask and you shall receive” , “if you have faith the size of a mustard seed” , BLAH, BLAH. When my grandson was born at 26 weeks, I knew it would be a hard road, NEVER questioned God “why” and I also had faith SO MUCH greater than the size of a mustard seed that our baby would be coming home. At 2 weeks old he developed an infection and we lost him. Hence the name prior faith.

    Here is the real truth about this supposed miracle. Time will always tell whether it was a real manifestation of God’s power or just celebrity-pastor hype:
