If you ever doubt the power of Christ, the case of Willie Myrick should change your mind. In 2014, the Atlanta boy was kidnapped from his front lawn by an unknown man. Unbelievably, Myrick was let go three hours later, unharmed by the kidnapper.
According to USA Today, both Myrick — then 9 — and his family said he owed his life to a powerful weapon the young man used: a gospel song.
Fox News reported that Myrick was playing in his yard in southwest Atlanta when he bent down to pick up some money. That’s when a man picked him up and threw him in a car.
“He told me he didn’t want to hear a word from me,” Myrick said.
That’s when the 9-year-old began singing the gospel song “Every Praise.” The kidnapper told him to stop, but he refused — and kept on singing it for three hours straight. That’s when the kidnapper decided to let him out completely unharmed in East Point, southeast of Atlanta. That’s when Myrick ran into a home and asked the people there to call his guardian.
“He opened the door and threw me out,” Myrick said. “He told me not to tell anyone.”
Hezekiah Walker, the man who recorded “Every Praise,” was so moved by the story that he flew to Atlanta from his home base in New York City to visit with Myrick.
“It’s just emotional to me because you never know who you’re going to touch,” Walker told WXIA-TV. “I just wanted to hug him and tell him I love him.”
“I really believe that God spoke through me to save that young man’s life,” Walker added.
It’s hard to look at this case and deny that Christ had some sort of influence over this boy’s miraculous rescue. Can it be proven? No. But in a time of turmoil, the case of Willie Myrick serves as a miraculous reminder of the power of His name — no matter how dire the circumstances.
