Angels In The Alley


Diane, a young Christian university student, was home for the summer. 
She had gone to visit some friends one evening & the time passed quickly
as each shared their various experiences of the past year. She ended 
up staying longer than she had planned. Evening came & Diane had to walk 
home alone. But 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 & 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
& began to pray, asking for "God's" protection. Instantly a comforting
feeling of quietness & 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 & arrived home safely.

The following day, she read in the paper that a young girl had been
raped in the same alley, just twenty minutes after she had been there.
Feeling overwhelmed by this tragedy & the fact that it could of been
her, she began to weep.

Thanking the Lord for her safety & 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 & 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 & confessed. The officer thanked Diane for her bravery & 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."
