A Missouri mother is saying the power of prayer brought her son back to life after he was dead for 45 minutes. But, the teen didn’t just survive the accident, he’s thriving.
14-year-old John Smith was dead. Paramedics found John submerged in a Missouri lake. He’d been there 15 minutes. He was airlifted to the children’s hospital where doctors performed CPR for nearly 30 minutes before pronouncing him dead. The parents were called in, but his mother, Joyce, believed that God could do what the doctors could not. She began crying out to God, and what happened next stunned everyone.
