A Christian couple's bid to resurrect their daughter through prayer has been met with a groundswell of support across the US.

Andrew and Kalley Heiligenthal's two-year-old daughter Olive Alayne, was rushed to hospital last Friday after she stopped breathing at the family's Redding, California home.

Tragically Olive Alayne was declared dead by doctors upon arrival and her body has been at the Shasta County Coroner's Office since Saturday, Redding police Sgt. Brian Torum told NBC.

On Sunday, Mrs Heiligenthal, a Christian singer, took to Instagram to issue an unusual plea – asking for prayers to bring her daughter back to life, news.com.au reports.

2. That's some rock hard delusional belief

It takes a very sad situation and just magnifies it.

3. Desperation and Despair Lead to The Same Place.

I'm sorry for their loss, and for their upcoming disappointment.

5. That other child who got shipped to a

facility in New Jersey because the mean state of California insisted that dead is dead was kept for more than two years while her family was barraged with bullshit from the faithists. In the end she was as dead as she was to begin with.

6. $100,000 ?

"A fundraiser set up for the child’s rebirth with a target of $100,000 has raised more than $33,000 in two days. Bethel Church in Redding, California, where Kelley is a singer, is one of the organizers of the fundraiser."
