A viral online video of Kinnady Devine is difficult to watch, but oh so powerful. While in the hospital battling a deadly disease, the sick little girl goes to Heaven. But don’t worry — she comes back praising Jesus and later makes a full recovery!
Somehow, the little girl contracted bacterial meningitis, an infection causing inflammation of the membranes (meninges) surrounding the brain and spinal cord. In order to definitively diagnose bacterial meningitis and identify which strain of bacteria is to blame, doctors needed to collect cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). This meant a spinal tap for poor Kinnady. Next, they would give the girl antibiotics in an effort to beat the infection.
Kinnady lay in her hospital bed surrounded by her loving mom, dad, and Nana. Rachel couldn’t resist filming little Kinnady after the painful and frightening procedure. The sweet girl can’t stop praising her family and thanking her nurses for their care.
At times, exhaustion from the intense treatment gets the best of Kinnady and the tiny girls nods off. This happens as the little girl puts her hands together and starts praying. And it’s in that moment the girl goes to Heaven. Though Kinnady is only out for a split-second from what we can see, she returns and joyously exclaims, “I’m here?!”
“It’s good to say prayers,” Kinnady exclaims. “I love God and I love Jesus… and live with Him!”
A bit later, the sweet girl grabs her mom’s hand and asks her family to join her in prayer. And soon after, she excitedly proclaims, “I’m better!”What’s amazing is that little Kinnady was right — she was better! Only a few days after the family’s friend, Sarah Ford, posted a Facebook plea for help, she posted another update announcing Kinnady had been miraculously healed!
“It is only by the Grace of God and prayer miracles that she walked out of that hospital this weekend as if nothing had happened, perfectly fine, nothing wrong with her NOTHING! and is at school as we speak! If you don’t believe in miracles, prayer, or even God, hear Kinnady story!”
