Our secret weapon

The most effective armament we have is ever at hand and mighty. We just need to use it.

Some years ago I found myself in a potentially dangerous situation. I had spent the evening taking care of some business matters in the downtown area of our city. Upon leaving the train at my station I began a rather long walk toward home at an hour when the houses all along the street were dark.

I soon noticed a car pacing me as I walked along. I began to pray silently; that is, to affirm God's all-power and ever-present care. As I reached a corner, the car turned and stopped, blocking my way. A door was opened, and I heard a voice command: "Get in!" But I refused, stepping down in front of the car, and proceeded on my way. I did not look back. As I walked on, I heard the door of the car slam shut, and the car was driven away.
