The Power of Prayer.

When she reached the alley, which was a short cut to her
house, she decided to take it. However, halfway down the
alley, she noticed a man standing at the end, as though he
were waiting for her. She became uneasy & began to pray,
asking for "God's" protection. Instantly a comforting
feeling of quietness & security wrapped around her;
she felt as though someone was walking with her. When
she reached the end of the alley, she walked right past
the man & arrived home safely.

The following day, she read in the paper that a young girl had
been raped in the same alley, just twenty minutes after she had
been there. Feeling overwhelmed by this tragedy & the fact that
it could of been her, she began to weep.

Thanking the Lord for her safety & to help this
young woman, she decided to go to the police
station. She felt she could recognize the man,
so she told them her story. The police asked her
if she would be willing to look at a lineup to
see if she could identify him. She agreed &
immediately pointed out the man she had
seen in the alley the night before.
When the man was told he had been identified, he immediately broke
down & confessed. The officer thanked Diane for her bravery & asked
if there was anything they could do for her, she asked if they would
ask the man one question. Diane was curious as to why he had not
attacked her. When the policeman asked him, he answered,

"Because she wasn't alone.
She had two tall men walking on either side of her."
