Millions of American children ask Santa every year for fun toys – video games, dolls, and so forth. But this 4-year old child – Prestyn Barnette – wearing his finest Christmas attire, asked Santa to pray with him for a child he has never met.
You have to see this incredible video (below):
Prestyn found out about Baby Knox thanks to a prayer group his grandmother belongs to on Facebook, and so Sunday during a visit to the Dutch Square Mall, he took it upon himself to ask for some divine intervention, hoping that a prayer from the man in the Big Red Suit might give it a boost.
He told Santa he wanted a Lionel train set and a miracle for Baby Knox, who is 2 months old and on life support in Las Vegas.
A Las Vegas family had sent out a request for prayers on Facebook at the end of November after his father found the baby boy unresponsive in his crib. Knox had stopped breathing.
His father performed CPR on his tiny body until EMS arrived at their home, and after being transported to a local hospital, Knox was transferred to a children’s hospital in Las Vegas, where he remains today.
On Tuesday, Prestyn went to Build-A-Bear Workshop, creating a special gift for Baby Knox. His name is Miracle.
“We wanted to send him something he can hear, feel and let him know we were there,” Prestyn’s aunt Rachel said.
This story should remind us of the TRUE meaning of Christmas. Prestyn’s parents have much to be proud of, and this video left me in tears:
