    9-Year-Old Boy Freed by Kidnapper After Singing Gospel Song

    Ladies, I have such an amazing story to share with you. It’s a true story about a young boy who reached out to God in a moment of terror.

    Nine-year-old Willie Myrick (he’s now ten) was abducted right outside his home in Atlanta, Ga. After Willie sang the gospel song “Every Praise” over and over for three hours straight, the kidnapper got angry and let him go.

    Check out the full story below:

    What an amazing boy! So strong and brave and full of faith. He cried out to God in his song, and God took care of him. What a fantastic reminder that we should always call out to God in times of need.

    There’s also an underlying question that I can’t help pondering since I first heard this story. Was God also talking to the kidnapper through Willie’s song? It seems evident that the man was affected by it. Willie sang for hours, ignoring the man’s threats and demands for him to be quiet, and this angered the man more, but still he didn’t hurt the boy. Instead, he stopped the car and told him to get out!

    I don’t know the story of the kidnapper, only that of this brave little boy. But I do pray that this man heard God speak to him, and that his heart softened in that moment and that is why he let the boy go. I also pray that this man was and still is deeply affected by what happened that day, and that he repents of his sins and turns to God. That would make an amazing story even more miraculous, don’t you think?

    If you’ve never heard the song “Every Praise” by Hezekiah Walker, or if you’re a great fan and want to hear it again, check out the video below! I love it!

    So, what do you think? Do you think that maybe God was speaking to the kidnapper as well as saving Willie?
