8-Year-Old Climbs On Roof And Prays To God During Tennessee Floods

It is always encouraging hearing stories about miracles and God answering our prayers. In this video, an 8-year-old climbs on a roof and prays to God during the Tennessee floods.

Madden Sanders is an 8-year-old who lives in Waverly, Tennessee. When the flooding came, he and his mother were separated in a life-threatening situation. With stitches on both of his eyebrows, he shares his story.

Madden said that he told his mom the waters were coming and she asked him to go and get his things. Then the mom explains that the house lifted up off of its base and began to be carried away by the water.

Madden’s mom thought quickly and found a floating toy to put him on. The flood overtook them and Madden hit the house two times. Madden’s mom says that was the last time she saw him and all she could hear was him screaming, “Mommy!” The water drug the mom a mile away and Madden found and sat on top of a shed where he stayed for four hours.

Madden prayed to God and said, “Please God don’t let me die, I want to live.” After searching for him for four hours, they finally found Madden. His mom shares, “I don’t know what God has planned for my boy, but I’m ready to see it. I know He’s got big plans for him.”

This miraculous story of rescue reminds us of how God saw that we too need rescue. In the midst of our sin, Jesus came down from Heaven to give us His life on behalf of our own. He saved all who accept His gift of eternal life and forgiveness. Just as this boy was reunited with his mother, when we accept Jesus, we are reunited back with our Father God.

“Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ, who gave Himself for our sins to rescue us from the present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father, to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen.” Galatians 1:3-5
