Diane, a young university student, was home for the summer.

She had gone to visit some friends one evening and time passed

quickly as each shared their various experiences of the past year.

She ended up staying longer than planned, and had to walk home

alone.

She wasn't afraid because it was a small town and she lived only

a few blocks away.

As she walked along under the tall elm trees, Diane asked "God"

to keep her safe from harm and danger.

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

and began to pray, asking for "God's" protection. Instantly a comforting

feeling of quietness and 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 and arrived home safely.

The following day, she read in the newspaper that a young girl

had been raped in the same alley just twenty minutes after she had been

there.

Feeling overwhelmed by this tragedy and the fact that it could

have been her, she began to weep. Thanking the Lord for her safety and 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 and 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 and confessed.

The officer thanked Diane for her bravery and 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."

Moral of the story... Don't underestimate the power of Prayer!

    • I have had this theory for some while  it is harder to abstain nowadays because we get married so late (into our 30s, or perhaps late twenties at best) back in the day Id be a father by 17 lol  not a excuse, just a interesting thought 
    • yeah I once used that point in a argument with some osho bhagat (from a sikh family) who said derogatory remarks on the other gurus, claiming guru nanak was the only enlightened one and that the rest *diluted* and corrupted guru nanak's message enshrined in japji sahib and the rest were all succeptible to emotions and panj chor (referred to "nis pyare seo neho" to say guru angad was attached to the mortal frame of guru nanak and was depressed when guru nanak passed away but I tried giving him a more accurate translation of the words) the guy kept on copying and pasting the same essay on mahantaa of sri japuji sahib in comments so I confronted him if he believed in japji sahib and then he got more osho type philosophical, basically proving he didnt believe in amrit bani but yeah shocker, the very japji he was praising had its salok composed by guru angad who he was belittling     it all started from him asking whether he was a sikh or a nanakpanthi (neither in my opinion, he was parroting his guru osho's words and I woouldnt be surprised that if osho had flipped his views on guru nanak this guy now would have been slandering guru nanak as well), i remember it pissed me off for the two days we went back and forth lmaoo 
    • I thought everyone knew I forgot which source, but I read it somewhere as a kid  At the moment, I can only recount bhai jagraj singh of BoS saying this a couples times, somewhere in his panj bania lecture or the japji sahib katha sikhs were asking guru maharaj for a morning bani, so guru maharaj blessed them with japji (I believe some were doing asa di vaar, at least as much was pargat by then, in addition as well but I may be wrong)  the sewa of compiling shabads into a japuji sahib was entrusted to bhai lehna (guru angad) at the time of gurgaddi divas of guru angad dev ji maharaj, he composed the salok to complete japji sahib (as the maha mantar was given by akaal purakh when guru nanak went to sach khand abode of paarbrahm kartar and guru nanak replied with the rest of mool mantar; I dont know some may differ with me and say brahmgyani and mahapursh are always in the STATE of sach khand but you guys get what I am trying to convey)   that is all I can recall for now but I will try to do more khoj onto this topic
