Student takes over HS graduation ceremony with impromptu prayer that goes viral

Remarks made by an Alabama high school student at his graduation ceremony last week were preserved on video that has since gone viral, having garnered more than 275,000 views since it was posted to YouTube.

It wasn’t a valedictorian speech — it was an impromptu prayer asking for God’s help during a medical crisis.

While an emergency medical crew looked after a woman in the crowd who was suffering from a seizure at the Clay-Chalkville High School commencement Thursday, Christian Crawford approached the dais and led the group in prayer.

“We pray right now that whatever is going on, you will fix it, God. We pray that you will heal it, God. We pray that you will redeem it, God. We pray that you will deliver it, God,” Christian prayed to the crowd of approximately 1,000 graduates, family and friends.

“Because we know that you are a God who knows how to make a way. And in the name of Jesus, we declare and decree in the name of Jesus, that whatever is going on shall be fixed, because you are a God who is a fixer. You are a God who is a healer.”

When Crawford finished praying, he returned to his seat to the spontaneous cheers from the crowd.

“Christian says that he stepped up to the microphone, and God simply took over,” reported “Fox & Friends” co-host Anna Kooiman.

Here’s Crawford’s full prayer as posted on YouTube.
