As a medical emergency was unfolding in the midst of an Alabama high school commencement ceremony, graduate Christian Crawford sprang into action. Emergency crews went to work aiding a woman who was suffering a seizure during the ceremony. Crawford, meanwhile, didn’t provide medical attention, but responded in the only manner he knew how… prayer.
The graduate stepped to the podium in front of over 1,000 attendees, admitting he didn’t know what was ailing the woman but that they should pray for her because “we know that prayer is power, and that God is able.”

As emergency crews tended to a woman who suffered a seizure during the Clay-Chalkville High School commencement Thursday evening, Christian Crawford stepped up to the podium and led the crowd of 1,000-plus in a prayer.
“We pray right now that whatever is going on, you will fix it, God. We pray that you will heal it, God. We pray that you will redeem it, God. We pray that you will deliver it, God,” Christian prayed.
“Because we know that you are a God who knows how to make a way. And in the name of Jesus, we declare and decree in the name of Jesus that whatever is going on shall be fixed, because you are a God who is a fixer. You are a God who is a healer.”
The crowd erupted in cheers when Christian was finished delivering his spontaneous and moving prayer. The ceremony continued without incident.
As news of the video clip achieving viral status reached Crawford, he refused to take credit saying he has not become famous because of the incident, rather “God is famous.”
What did you think of Crawford’s impromptu prayer, or perhaps even more so, the positive reaction it received in an increasingly anti-religious media?
