Bethel Worship Leader Asks for Prayer That Daughter Who Died Would Come Back to Life

Bethel worship leader and songwriter Kalley Heiligenthal asked for urgent prayer yesterday after doctors pronounced her daughter dead.

In an Instagram post, Heiligenthal said her daughter stopped breathing Saturday and was officially pronounced dead.

"We're asking for prayer," she wrote. "We believe in a Jesus who died and conclusively defeated every grave, holding the keys to resurrection power. We need it for our little Olive Alayne, who stopped breathing yesterday and has been pronounced dead by doctors.

"We are asking for bold, unified prayers from the global church to stand with us in belief that He will raise this little girl back to life. Her time here is not done, and it is our time to believe boldly, and with confidence wield what King Jesus paid for. It's time for her to come to life."

Several prominent Christian pastors and leaders—including Rich Wilkerson Jr., Darlene Zschech, Britt Nicole and Mack Brock—commented on Heiligenthal's post, saying they were interceding in the name of Jesus.

Others shared Heiligenthal's bold call for resurrection prayer.

Bethel pastor Kris Vallotton shared Heiligenthal's message on Facebook, saying, "Please join us as we pray in bold faith for a miracle for our own Kalley and Andrew Heiligenthal." His post has 1.4K shares as of this writing.

Prophetic revivalist Christy Johnston also shared Heiligenthal's plea for prayer, adding her own faith-filled cry of intercession:

"Friends, we are joining the Bethel family in a global movement of prayer for this little one, Olive. Ever since we heard yesterday morning, I have been praying prayers of resurrection over this little girl. We serve a miracle working God, and all night in my sleep, I kept hearing the words, 'Talitha Koum'... little girl, I say to you, get up from the sleep of death in Jesus Name and WALK! I looked up her name meaning just now, Olive Alayne. Olive- 'evergreen', which speaks of LIFE in EVERY SEASON. Alayne - 'AWAKENING' and 'dear child.' ! Lets decree together over her, O-LIVE the AWAKENING breath of Jesus, dear child!"
