"So I just responded back after that, you know, I don't know what's going on with you. But I just want you to know God loves you, I love you, and I'm praying for you. And immediately within seconds he started talking to me." says Bratcher. 

Bratcher said he wanted to keep Siddens calm, so he didn't harm himself or anyone else.
