A little over a year ago, doctors predicted that the E.Coli infection ravishing the body of 2-year-old Jaxon Taylor would kill him.
Today, he is a happy toddler and his testimony has become a worship anthem reaching millions of people worldwide.
In December of 2017, Jaxon was airlifted to the hospital with a severe E. Coli infection that had ravaged his kidneys. Doctors rushed him into surgery and said he might not make it through the night.
“The dialysis was pretty intense,” Jaxon’s mother, Janie Taylor, wrote in an Instagram post. “Jaxon was turning even more pale and his lips were very blue and he was trembling while we waited for the blood transfusion… it was the scariest thing I’ve ever faced.”
The Taylor family spent weeks in the hospital and pleaded with God to save their child as they watched Jaxon steadily decline. Jaxon suffered from vomiting spells, seizures, and cognitive failure. All the while, believers around the world were praying that Jesus would heal his body.
One of those prayers came in the form of a song. Jaxon’s father, Joel Taylor, is the CEO of Bethel Music and when he told his network of worship artists Jaxon needed a Christmas miracle, Jonathan David and Melissa Hesler began to sing from their souls.
“I just felt like this giant of unbelief stood in front of me and I just thought, ‘Jaxon’s gonna die tonight. We’re not going to see the miracle,'” Jonathan David Hesler told Fox News. “And as this giant stood in front of me, all of a sudden, out of my gut, this song started coming out.”
“I raise a hallelujah, in the presence of my enemies,” he sang. “My weapon is a melody…Heaven comes to fight for me.” He recorded the song and sent it to Taylor. The desperate father played the song of praise over Jaxon over and over again.
Little by little, Jaxon got better.
He began to move his limbs, open his eyes, and act like an ordinary child. After weeks of being in the hospital, the Taylor family left with their very alive little boy.
