Jesus sets the captive free! Kidnapper releases 10-year-old boy who sang worship song for 3 hours.


I can barely contain my tears as I type…this story is so incredible, I had to share!  A 10-year-old boy named Willie Myrick from Atlanta was lured by an offer of cash from a kidnapper.  When the boy got close enough to the car, the abductor snatched him and threw him into the car.  As the man drove for three hours, Willie did something incredible: he worshiped.  He sang Hezekiah Walkers song “Every Praise” over and over and over again. Finally, the kidnapper could stand no more, pulled over, and threw Willie out of his car.

Here’s video of the news report from NBC 11 in Atlanta:

Willie’s story is now being told all over the world, everywhere from CNN to the Daily Mail in the United Kingdom.

Friends, there is tremendous power in worship!  Like Paul and Silas in the book of Acts, Willie worshiped and praised God until God delivered him from his captor.  God is powerful and good in the midst of every circumstance, and he hears the cries of his children when we call out.

Whatever your circumstance today, worship God because He deserves it!
