Chelsea Lee Taylor is a living testament to the saying that “prayer can move mountains.” Doctors have declared the Hillsong worship leader clear of any further operations and she owes her recovery to the Christian community who were ceaseless in their prayers to God for her health.
Taylor, her family, and members of the Sydney-based Hills campus in Australia where she serves, have a reason to celebrate and praise God now that she is back to her sprightful and chatty self. Taylor’s mother updated Emma Fellers, creative administrator at Hillsong Church, of her daughter’s situation and it’s the best news that everyone could ever receive.
Well today’s been a REALLY good day 💪🏻🙌🏻🎉 swipe to read the Tuesday PM latest! KEEP PRAYING EVERYONE!!! 💖💖💖 @chelsealeetaylor
Taylor is not out of the woods yet but she has a fighting spirit. As the community continues to pray for her, Fellers also continues to update everyone about her recent progress on her Instagram.
MONDAY AM Update: It’s been a challenging weekend and the recovery journey takes time. Chelsea had to have another main line inserted, but tubes and drainage got removed! Three weeks since the aneurysm – It’s tiring and she just wants to go home… Chelsea has been able to be more active again, like doing trips to the bathroom, which is great! 🙌🏼 The docs have also finished all the strong medications, so it looks like she may go to High Dependancy Unit soon! She is still continuing with antibiotics but hopefully not for too much longer. Please keep Chelsea & her family in your prayers as we believe for a full recovery and strength & grace for the moment! xx
The news comes after the devoted Christian leader suffered an aneurysm on August 18 after Sunday worship service. She underwent a nine-hour brain surgery, which was successful, and she has been in the hospital since under strict supervision.

Doctors are closely monitoring her progress since the aneurysm affected a major artery. Taylor endured pain in her body, on-and-off fever, a swollen face, and more days’ stay at the ICU because of vasospasm in her brain.
However, God is good and the prayer brigade has been nonstop. Church members also visited Taylor at the hospital, which helped uplift her spirit. As the days go on, she only gets better and better and her family is calling her progress a miracle. Taylor continues to smile despite her situation and remains steadfast in her faith in God that He will be there with her through it all.

Indeed, praying to God is a powerful weapon that can grant mercies and wishes. As it is written in Jeremiah 29:12, “Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you,” the Lord listened to the Christian global community who prayed for Taylor’s recovery and He answered their prayers.
After Hillsong worship leader Chelsea Lee Taylor was rushed to the hospital for emergency brain surgery shortly after leading worship, leaders across the body of Christ rallied Christians to pray for her full recovery. Listen as host Jenny Rose Spaudo shares about Taylor’s mother’s special declaration of faith over her daughter.
