There is a promise in the ninety-first Psalm (verse 5): "Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night."

One evening, in the spring of 1985, we received news that our daughter Birdie had been taken to an emergency hospital by ambulance following an automobile accident. (She had gone on an outing for the day with neighbors.) My first thought of Birdie was, "She is not out of God's reach." During the hour-long drive that my husband and I made to the hospital, I held to this thought.

At the hospital we learned that our daughter had been X-rayed. Also several stitches had been taken to close a head wound. The hospital staff told us that there were probable internal injuries. Birdie was in agreement that she should return home, and my husband and I signed a release form so that we could take her with us. A Christian Science practitioner was engaged to pray for her.
