God hoping Facebook post reaches sufficient number of likes so He can heal sick child

From The Babylon Bee.

ATLANTA, GA—What is not known is how Shayna Hinton, 35, knows the sweet little girl in the photo she shared on Facebook Monday. What is known is that the young girl in the picture has a “rare” and “deadly” disease that God will heal as long as Hinton’s Facebook post telling the world about her reaches one million likes.

The Almighty, according to Hinton, is watching the post intently, hoping against hope that it hits its goals quickly so He can intervene.

“1 like = 1 prayer” says her status update, making it clear that miraculous work from the Lord on behalf of the afflicted child is incumbent upon her post going viral. “Look into this sweet little girl’s eyes and decide right now—will you LIKE and SHARE this post so GOD can HEAL her???” she clarified in the comments section.

Continuing on in the comments section, Hinton made clear that “it’s up to US, folks,” “God is just WAITING and HOPING we will activate our faith so He can heal this child,” and “you can save her life RIGHT HERE, RIGHT NOW, if you’ll just do your part by clicking that LIKE button and then SHARING this post.”


At publishing time, the post had received a number of further comments, all from Hinton, and had only 999,987 likes to go before God would be able to save the child.

  1. Ha! Are we not the craziest culture? I do hope God finds us amusing sometimes. Maybe He reads the Babylon Bee 🙂

    Seriously? I actually have dear friends that are kind caring people who get into this sort of bullying and magical thinking. I used to think intelligence was the most important trait, then decided it was kindness. Beginning to think we better go for a balance!!!
