Georgia Boy Released by Kidnapper After Praising God Through Captivity

MyrickATLANTA — A ten-year-old Georgia boy is inspiring the masses after he was recently released from the clutches of his kidnapper when he sang praises to God during his abduction.

Willie Myrick of Atlanta was lured away with cash late last month and shoved into the car of an unidentified abductor who remains on the loose. Myrick was in the driveway of his own home when he was kidnapped.

However, as his abductor drove held him captive in his vehicle for nearly three hours, Myrick repeatedly sang the song Every Praise, written by gospel singer Hezekiah Walker.

“Every praise is to our God. Every word of worship with one accord,” he sang. “God my savior. God my healer. God my deliverer. Yes, He is.”

Myrick stated that as he sang, the kidnapper began using profanities, and he eventually stopped the vehicle and let the boy out.

“He opened the door and threw me out,” Myrick told television station WXIA-TV. “He told me not to tell anyone.”

However, the boy did tell his story, which made it all the way to Hezekiah Walker himself. Last Thursday, community leaders held a meeting at Mt. Carmel Baptist Church in Atlanta on the boy’s birthday to recognize his amazing story and provide a warning to parents in the community.

Walker himself decided to fly out to see Myrick.

“I just wanted to hug him and tell him I love him,” he told reporters. “I really believe that God spoke through me to save that young man’s life.”

Walker sang Every Praise for those who had gathered, and tears flowed down Myrick’s face as Walker stood next to him, praising God for the young boy’s safety.

    The devil could not stand to hear the Name of the Lord sung over and over again.

    The power of God through this boy singing praises to God till the kidnapper couldn’t stand it and through him out. This boy had the guts to sing praises to God and not be afraid of the kidnapper because the boy had Jesus living in him, I believe he had good christian parents to teach him of God and Gods saving grace.
