PHILADELPHIA, PA—Before her baptism Sunday, local four-week-old baby Hannah Grace Ford took a few minutes to deliver her moving testimony of coming to trust in Christ as her Lord and Savior, sources at Calvin Presbyterian Church confirmed.
“I had wandered from God during the first few weeks of my life,” the one-month-old baby said, emotion in her voice. “I did all the right Christiany things—came to church when my parents made me, participated in the sacraments.”
“But my heart was far from God,” she said tearfully.
The infant went on to say that one night as she screamed uncontrollably in her crib at 2:00 a.m., God slowly began drawing her to Himself.
“It’s hard to explain: one moment I was shaking my tiny fist at God for allowing me to go hungry for a full five minutes before my parents came and got me, and then suddenly His grace found me, and I surrendered my life to Him,” she said.
Following her testimony, the church’s reverend baptized Ford and welcomed her to the community of faith, sources confirmed.
