A missionary was teaching a heathen woman the ‘Lord's Prayer’. When he got to the end of the first clause, "Our Father which art in Heaven," she stopped him.
"If God is our Father," she said, "that is enough. There is nothing now to fear."
And to one whose life was haunted by the constant dread of countless evil spirits that was a sweet message indeed.
