YOU PRAY FOR THE KNOWN AND UNKNOWN FOR GOD TO BRING YOU THROUGH 

The Civil Writer Magazine

The Centennial Olympic Park bombing was a domestic terrorist pipe bombing attack on the Centennial Olympic Park in Atlanta, Georgia, on July 27 during the 1996 Summer Olympics. The blast directly killed 1 person and injured 111 others; another person later died of a heart attack.

On that day July 27, 1996 at Centennial Olympic Park I and the family walked past that hidden bomb until we left to find a place to eat. A couple of times we walked in the vicinity of the hidden bomb to go to the restroom. Not knowing we were facing harm. But unknowing to us God put timing and chance in our favor. After we left the park to eat strangely nobody wanted to go back to the park.

We had gone to bed around 11:30 pm, around 1:25 a.m., a 40-pound pipe bomb explodes. We received a call that morning from a friend to check on us to make sure we were safe. This is why you pray for the known and unknown events because life can present many things that God can and does deflect by changing time or direction by interposing something; turn aside from a straight course.
