By Danielle Jarvis

A Bethel worship leader is believing for a miracle after her little girl suddenly died.

Kalley Heili and Bethel Church have asked for Christians to pray after her two year-old daughter Olive never woke from her day sleep.

Kalley Heiligenthal has been a worship leader and songwriter at Bethel Church and with Bethel Music since 2014. She also serves as 2nd Year Worship Pastor for Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry.

“We’re asking for prayer,” she commented in an Instagram post. “We believe in a Jesus who died and conclusively defeated every grave, holding the keys to resurrection power. We need it for our little Olive Alayne, who stopped breathing yesterday and has been pronounced dead by doctors. We are asking for bold, unified prayers from the global church to stand with us in belief that He will raise this little girl back to life. Her time here is not done, and it is our time to believe boldly, and with confidence wield what King Jesus paid for. It’s time for her to come to life.”


In a separate post she stated,“Day 3 is a really good day for resurrection. We are overwhelmed with gratitude by your outpouring of love for us and faith for Olive. Jesus is Faithful and True and He’s riding in with the victory He bought for Olive. Olive Alayne means “victorious awakening”. We call on the mighty all-sufficient name of Jesus and we call you back by name, sweet girl. You will live. Thank you for your faith-filled declarations, keep them coming. Worship Jesus with us, He is moving, He is good, He is worthy and He is alive.”


High profile worship leader Jenn Johnson also took to Instagram to pray for a miracle, with the hashtag #prayforolive added.


A video was also posted of Kalley worship leading, prophesying her daughter will live.


Originally from Minnesota, Kalley grew up heavily involved in choir and began leading worship in college through a student-led worship ministry.

Kalley’s newest song “Every Crown” is featured on Bethel Music’s latest album VICTORY released January 2019. She is also a part of Bethel Music’s first Spanish album Bethel Music En Español singing “Por Siempre” and “Sopla Espíritu.” Kalley was also a part of the album Starlight and her songs “Spirit Move” and “Ever Be”, are featured on Bethel Music albums Have it Alland We Will Not Be Shaken.
