Bet you’ve heard the answer after playing the clip, right? The man abandoned his thoughts of suicide in response to his little boy’s prayer. Humbling ain’t it? It only took a simple prayer from a small child to save a life. As adults governed by logic, our attempts to help those experiencing inner torment often cause more harm. Not in the case of this little boy. What the grandparents could not deliver, God accomplished through a kid. The mom must have been proud of her son!

A track from Randall Hank Williamsalbum, Luke the Drifter, Jr., Vol. 3, this featured tune is at the heart of Williams’ mournful songs about heartbreaks and hopelessness. Still young and a greenhorn in the Music industry, he enjoyed a string of hits trying to fill his late dad’s shoes. Hence, his earlier recordings were of the same theme and caliber that just characterized Hank Williams. MGM Records then released the said album in the US and Canada the same year of 1970.
