Sarah Lyn’s Miracle

The red marks around Sarah’s neck where she had been strangled


Monday the 26th of August 2002 started out as a seemingly ordinary day for Pastor Dr. Philip Lyn and his family. There was nothing notable about that date except that it was the day before his daughter Sarah’s 4th birthday. As he left for work that morning, little did he know that he would later receive a phone call that afternoon telling him that Sarah was on the verge of death.

His daughter had been playing outside near a clothesline and had accidently strangled herself. About six precious minutes ticked by before Sarah was discovered hanging lifelessly from the clothesline. By then her body was cold and there was no pulse to be found. As they rushed her to the hospital, they weren’t sure if the doctors were able to save her life. And even if she were to live, she would most probably suffer from severe brain damage or remain in a vegetative state due to the amount of time that her brain had been deprived of oxygen.

All Pastor Philip and his wife could do was cry out to God to save her and proclaim His word that He had spoken to them in Psalm 118:17 that Sarah would “not die but live and declare the works of the Lord.”
