When you’re a child, for Christmas you always want the biggest and the bestest… and usually… the costliest toys all for yourself. You seldom think of others. Hey, it’s a kid thing. I’m not so old I can’t remember that. But some actually DO think beyond themselves.
In Columbia, South Carolina, 4-year-old Prestyn Barnette visited Santa at a mall and, instead of asking for toys, the little boy asked Santa if he would pray with him for a 2-month-old boy who was fighting for his life in a Las Vegas hospital. Santa obliged Prestyn and got down on his knee beside his big chair and prayed with the little boy.
Prestyn had heard about baby Knox Stine from his grandmother. He was found unresponsive by his father and quickly taken to the hospital. After the photo of the two praying went viral, plenty more prayers were sent up for little baby Knox.
Unfortunately, little baby Knox died just before Christmas last year.
