Swimming injuries can be devastating and sometimes life-altering. But not for a father who believes more in God than in modern medicine.
“God can and will heal my daughter,” proclaims a father after injuries from her daughter’s freak swimming accident left her paralyzed. Tre Faulkner is asking everyone to pray for his sweet seven-year-old daughter named Sarah.
Girl seriously injured in swimming accident
The family had been enjoying a weekend outdoors filled with many family bonding activities. This went on to include swimming in a lake near their camp. It is a favorite place where people come to enjoy the views, enjoy the lake and go diving off the cliffs.

Sarah Faulkner was swimming in this lake when a teenage girl landed on her from thirty feet, forcing Sarah to dive to the bottom of the lake. The 7-year-old girl was terrified when she realized that her arms were not responding to her ability to swim to the surface.
“She said that when the girl landed on her back, her whole body froze and she hit her head on the bottom of the creek and evidently took her to the bottom,” said Sarah’s father, Tre .
She was rushed to the hospital, where she received nineteen staples to her head. And that’s when the doctors told her family that she Sarah would never walk again. Her injuries from her swimming accident paralyzed Sarah Faulkner from the chest down.
Trusting the Great Healer
Despite the bleak outlook, this Christ-centered family is looking to someone greater than Sarah’s doctor for a miracle. They keep their eyes firmly on Christ for Sarah’s sake.
“I said, ‘Sir, man to man, just tell me the truth: will she ever walk again?’ He said, ‘No, I don’t think so…but there is something more powerful than me,'” Tre said.

And now, Tre wants everyone who hears Sarah’s story to agree with him and pray for a miracle. He believes that Sarah’s condition is only temporary because he believes without a doubt that God has a greater purpose for her.
They have created a GoFundMe page for people to pray for her and help with her expenses. How can Tre be so confident in believing that God will heal her daughter from the injuries from her swimming accident? How can he have a peace that passes all understanding? I honestly don’t know, but I prayed that my heart and faith might be more like this steadfast father.
Prayer for Sarah Faulkner
Let’s take a moment to encourage this seven year old and agree with Tre to ask our mighty God to heal Sarah.
I come to you today with a faith that seems so small, and the idea of a miracle seems so out of reach. Help this family walk by faith and not by sight during this heartbreaking time. Continue to give them wisdom and trust that they can lean on you in the days ahead. Lord, miracles happen because it is in your will. I ask in the name of Jesus a miracle for Sara.
I agree with Tre, because your word says that “where two or three gather in your name, you are with us”. May your healing hands rest on Sarah’s body as your life-giving power restores Sarah’s ability to walk. Show the world through your healing power through Sara so that they too may be healed and walk in fullness as well.
