PRAYER HELPED ME BREAK FREE FROM ASSAULT

During my freshman year of college on the East Coast of the United States, I dated a man who became physically abusive toward me. I ended the relationship, but since we attended a very small school, we periodically ended up in the same classes.

One Friday night before exams, we were in a study group together for one of our common classes. The group was meeting in his dorm room. As the group was breaking up, I found myself alone with him. I tried to go, but there was some arguing and he wouldn't let me leave. Just as I was headed for the door, he grabbed me and began strangling me. He then pushed me down onto the bed, immobilizing me, and pressed a pillow over my face. In that moment, I reached out of God for help with all my heart.
