"Duck Dynasty" star Sadie Robertson is once again using her celebrity status for a good cause, posting a photo of a little girl who has an inoperable brain tumor and imploring her followers to "storm the gates of heaven" in fervent prayer for a miracle.
"This is Katie Joyce. Her family found out she has a brain tumor and its on her brain stem," Robertson wrote in the caption. "The doctors say we need a miracle. The only thing that can fix this is if we storm the gates of heaven."
The "Dancing With the Stars" season 19 runner-up went on to encourage her fans to write messages of encouragement, and invited them to write prayer needs of their own.
