Praying Beats Crying

We would love to share with you a wonderful true story of a young boy who turned to prayer when he spiked a high fever and had asthma. Read on to find out how Superbook helped him – and his Grandmother – through a really difficult time…

Melfa began raising her grandson Sam after his mother could no longer provide for him.
She helps him with homework, and they do chores together. But one of their favourite activities is watching CBN’s Superbook.
“I learned from Superbook that Daniel always trusted in the Lord, and he always prayed,” said Sam.
Melfa and Sam have faced a lot of challenges together, like the time he was sick with a high fever and asthma.
“I felt so helpless,” said Melfa. “I was sobbing. Then Sam said, ‘don’t cry grandma, let’s just pray!’”  
Sam reminded his grandmother about the faith of Daniel.
“Daniel prayed and prayed until God saved him from the lions, and he was set free,” said the boy with confidence. “The next day, my asthma was gone. “Jesus healed me!”

Then Sam said, ‘don’t cry grandma, let’s just pray!’”  

Recently when Sam heard his mother had cancer, he urged his grandmother to take him to visit so he could pray with her.  He had not seen his mum since he was six months old.   
“I was happy because I saw her for the first time,” he said. “But I was sad because she was sick. I prayed, ‘Lord you are my doctor. I pray that you would heal her Lord. Thank you, Lord, for giving her life. In Jesus name I pray, amen.’”   
Sam said he continued to pray for his mum especially when he heard she’d stopped cancer treatments. She’d run out of money to pay for them.  
Months later, Sam met his mum again. This time she told him some good news. The doctor had told her the cancer symptoms were gone, that she was cancer free! Sam knew that meant they would have more time together.    
“And I said, ‘Thank you Lord that you healed her and answered my prayer.’ I love Superbook because it taught me to never give up praying!”
