I had been a police officer for 18 months when I was viciously attacked by a parolee on an enforcement stop. My face was cut up and I was bleeding profusely from my right eye. I lost alot of blood and could not see with my attacker and I still fighting. The fight lasted 11 minutes in 106* heat. I felt like I was losing and was desperate when I heard a voice whisper in my ear,"Ask God for help." I had completely forgotten to pray. I asked God to let me finish this fight and go home. Suddenly a lady drove by, got out of her car and screamed into my car radio that an officer was down and needed help. Suddenly I heard the sirens of other officers responding. I was able to outlast the bad guy with strength I suddenly found until help arrived. I suffered a concussion along with 8 stitches to close my eye, but I was able to go home to my pregnant wife. To this day, I can still hear the voice telling me to ask God for help. I know that was the voice of my guard!
