The number of devout Christians in the public eye of Hollywood is staggeringly low. And given the persecution the few that profess their beliefs receive, it’s no wonder why things are the way they are.
But Sadie Robertson is one of the most courageous Christian television stars to ever speak out about her faith. And now she’s publicly requesting prayer for an urgent issue.
The Conservative Tribune tells the full story:
In a post on Instagram, the “Duck Dynasty” and “Dancing with the Stars” icon talked about Katie Joyce, a girl with an inoperable brain tumor.
Katie is from the town of Monroe City, Louisiana. She’s been suffering with the cancer since age two, and has been treated at the famed St. Jude’s Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee. However, doctors there say that they’ve done all they can for her.
Sadie Robertson, however, is a strong believer in the power of prayer, and she isn’t going to let Katie go without a fight.
“This is Katie Joyce — Her family found out she has a brain tumor … on her brain stem which (is) inoperable. The doctors say we need a miracle,” Robertson wrote in her post. “The only thing that can fix this is if we storm the gates of heaven.”
Robertson also included a promise with her post: “Write comments of encouragement & if you know someone who needs prayer feel free to write it in a comment & I will pray for all of you as well.”
It’s truly inspiring to see a believer display their faith in the public forum, especially one so inhospitable as the popular media.
