There was a young Christian lady from Boston who left work and went to the parking garage to get in her car and go to church one Wednesday evening, and when she stepped into the elevator a man grabbed her and began to try to rape her. She yelled out: "In the name of Jesus, stop it, I’m a Christian!" And the man stopped! She gathered her wits and told him she would pray for him and that he should go to church and seek the Lord. The elevator door opened, and she went to her car and drove to church, where she related the story. They prayed for her and the man who attacked her. She never saw him again.

That is not to say that God will preserve and protect every Christian from being hurt. But every Christian has more power with them than they think.

(From a sermon by Greg Nance, "Courage in Prayer" 1/25/2009)
