Did you know that the first English translations of the Bible were banned? That the first printed copies of the New Testament in English had to be printed in Germany and smuggled into England in bales of cotton? Did you know that the Bible translator responsible for this was burned at the stake for the crime of translating the Scriptures into English? We are in danger of forgetting truths for which previous generations gave their lives.
A gospel song saved a 10-year-old Atlanta boy from his kidnapper. Willie Myrick said he was in his front yard and bent down to pick up money when somebody grabbed him and threw him in a car.
“He told me he didn’t want to hear a word from me,” Myrick said. That’s when Myrick began to sing a gospel song called “Every Praise.” The kidnapper started cursing and repeatedly told Myrick to shut up, but he wouldn’t. He sang the song for about three hours until the kidnapper let him out of the car.
The little boy ran to a nearby home and asked the resident to call his guardian.
Myrick recently got to meet “Every Praise” gospel singer Hezekiah Walker, and they sang the song together.
Police don’t have any leads on the suspect, but are hoping a sketch they released will generate tips.
Watch the report from Trace Gallagher, which includes Willie singing the song on a local radio station.
Check out a YouTube video of “Every Praise”.
To me this is awesome! Our God is awesome!
