This Abducted 10-Year-Old Managed To Get The Captor Beg Him To Leave
Willie Myrick was born to atheist parents, but he was raised by his godmother, Codetta Bateman, who took him to church and taught him about God.
“Faith is important to this house and believing in God is important,” Codetta
The 10-year-old was out in his front yard in Atlanta, when a man drove up and grabbed Willie and threw him into the back of his car.
The young boy was frightened and his fear turned to faith as he trusted God to help him.
Willie’s captor told the boy he didn’t want to hear a word from him. “So I didn’t say nothin’,” said Willie.
But he did start singing – a gospel song called “Every Praise,” the chorus of which goes:
God my Savior
God my Healer
God my Deliverer
Yes He is, yes He is
The abductor was obviously irritated by the boy’s behavior so he asked him to shut it, but the boy went on and on for three hours. The abductor couldn’t take it anymore, so he let Willie out.
Willie ran to a nearby home and asked someone there to call his godmother. Police, who had already been crusading the city looking for the boy, quickly came and picked him up. They say the song saved his life.
“If you praise the Lord he will help you in mysterious ways,” Willie said.
“It really doesn’t matter to me as long as I still have Jesus and he’s still working and doing his magic,” Willie said. “Well it’s not magic. It’s just power.”
