Danger and violence defused

Translated from Portuguese

One night my girlfriend and I were accosted by three armed men in front of her house.

They got into the car with us and told me to drive around. Then they started to ransack my briefcase, my wallet, and the car. Through the rearview mirror, I watched the two men in the back seat, and I noticed that my girlfriend, seated between them, was praying. They didn't allow us to talk, but they couldn't prevent us from praying.

The young man who was with me in the front seat asked a lot of questions: Was I armed? Where was I going? I told them to take whatever they needed, and let us go. I was able to pray, calmly, the first two words of the Lord's Prayer, "Our Father," which instantly assured me that we all have only one Father. He was protecting each one of us at that exact moment. I knew that divine Mind was, in reality, our only intelligence, and enabled us to think and act with calm authority.
