No coincidence happened in Cookville

When we say prayers, became witness to God's miracle. I would like to share my insights and how I have been moved by the movie "The Cookville Miracle". This contains spoilers.

The Culprint

The movie presents a true story of a bomb hostage scene happened in Cookville Elementary School. A psycho man used his own daughter and wife to stage a captivity of mostly children and their teachers for money, revenge and ideal of resurrection.

Children in midst of chaos

Children are most likely to be curious, playful, innocent and natural observant. One of my favorite part is when a girl correcting her hostage taker on her word usage in sentences.

Most children think of serious situation as games. However, there is an instinct in them to feel havoc. These children were taught to pray and have strong foundation and deep relationship towards God. In the midst of chaos, the children, without an instruction with initiative carried out prayers.

God is our Savior

God has His ways of answering prayers. God sent ancestors to served as their guardian angels to keep them safe. Prayers of children, parents, teachers and even who have just saw the news, were heard by God. There is no coincidence, a miracle happened that day. They all got out alive except for the couple who pushed the captivity.


Our world contains people who are causing harm to fellow man. However, if we don't forgive and let ourselves dwell in hatred, that's like drinking poison and facing the end for us.

Let us learn from these children who have pure and kind heart. Even in the most unimaginable and hopeless case we can depend on the most powerful weapon- PRAYERS. God bless you!

Hi everyone, I'm so excited.
My ex-boyfriend is back after a breakup,I’m extremely happy that will are living together again.
My name is Mary Wilkie from United Kingdom,
My boyfriend of a 4yr just broke up with me and am 30 weeks pregnant.I have cried my self to sleep most of the nights and don’t seem to concentrate during lectures sometimes I stay awake almost all night thinking about him and start to cry all over again.Because of this I end up not having energy for my next day’s classes ,my attendance has dropped and am always in uni and on time.Generally he is a very nice guy ,he ended it because he said we were arguing a lot and not getting along.He is right we’ve been arguing during the pregnancy a lot .After the break up I kept ringing him and telling him I will change.I am in love with this guy and he is the best guy I have ever been with.I’m still hurt and in disbelief when he said he didn’t have any romantic feelings towards me anymore that hurt me faster than a lethal syringe.He texts me now and then mainly to check up on how am doing with the pregnancy,he is supportive with it but it’s not fair on me, him texting me as I just want to grieve the pain and not have any stress due to the pregnancy.i was really upset and i needed help, so i searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Unity can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and i did it then he did a spell for me. 28 hours later, my bf came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my bf are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Unity. If you have any problem contact Dr.Unity now and i guarantee you that he will help you.Email him at: ,you can also call him or add him on whats-app: +2348071622464 ,His website: .
