a good story

A girl went to her friends house and sheended up staying longer than planned, and had to walk home alone. She wasn't afraid because it was a small COMMUNITY and she livedonly a few blocks away. As she walked along under the bike trailDiane asked God to keep her safe from harm and danger.. When she reached the alley, which was a shortcut to her house, she decided to take it. However, halfway down the alley she noticed a manstanding at the end as though he were waiting for her. She becameuneasy and began to pray, asking for God's protection. Instantly acomforting feeling of quietness and security wrapped round her,she felt as though someone was walking with her. When she reachedthe end of the alley, she walked right past the man and arrived home safely. The following day, she read in the newspaperthat a young girl had been raped in the same alley just twentyminutes after she had been there. Feeling overwhelmed by thistragedy and the fact that it could have been her, she began to weep. Thanking the Lord for her safety and to help this youngwoman, she decided to go to the police station. She felt she could recongnize 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 hehad been identified, he immediately broke down and confessed. The officer thanked Diane for her bravery and asked if there wasanything 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. Amazingly, whether you believe or not, you're not alone Amazingly, whether you believe or not, you're not alone.People will not stand up for God..
