Carol Morgan is a reader of our daily devotions, and she has been for many years. She recently sent a prayer request to our ministry, asking for prayer for her granddaughter who was in the hospital having surgery. A couple days later she sent me a picture of little Abigayle in the hospital bed, but she wasn’t alone; she had something very special with her: her super hero cape! 

I was intrigued and inquired about the cape. Carol shared her story with me. She told me how she began by making super hero capes for her grandchildren. She wanted them to understand that there is a super hero inside of them and she wanted them to celebrate the greatness within them. Additionally she made them for friends of her grandchildren and other children as well. She personalized each one with the child’s initials and they all loved them!
Every child loves super hero capes, I know my grandchildren do. And why not? A super hero by definition is larger than life, they are powerful and courageous. They can triumph through insurmountable circumstances. They are, in the eyes of a child, invincible.
On the other hand, when a child is sick or facing a disease, they feel helpless and afraid. I can think of no better time for them to have something to hold onto, something that reminds them there is a super hero inside of each of them. I can think of no better time for that super hero inside of them to be unleashed, can you? That’s what Carol does through her ministry of super hero capes for children battling sickness and disease.
Recently, she has begun making super hero capes for children in the hospital that are ill or have had surgery. Those children who are afraid and feeling helpless will be reminded that there is courage and power within them. As they come out of surgery, that little super hero cape takes their mind off the illness, the fear, and the pain and reminds them of the triumphant spirit that lives in each child.

In my humble opinion, it is an awesome reminder to each of us that every child who faces sickness and disease is, after all, a super hero.

Carol’s desire is to make super hero capes to give to as many children as possible, either as they come out of surgery or as they deal with sickness and disease. Her desire is to minister to these children by giving them something tangible to hold onto that will remind them of the greatness within them. And something that will remind them that someone loves them and is praying for them. For you see, each super hero cape is prayed over several times before it arrives at the hospital to be given away.
Today, I am sharing this story with you in hope that it touches your heart as it did mine. I would love for you to pray about sharing her story and helping us get more super hero capes into the hands of children battling sickness and disease. Help Carol remind them there is a super hero inside of them and with the help of Jesus, they can win this battle. Remember, this isn’t just a super hero cape, it is an anointed and soaked in prayer, super hero cape.
