Fear of the dark
This happened to me at my boarding-school. I was a bit chicken-hearted then. I woke up at 3 am to study for my examination that morning. It was still dark outside. I went downstairs to the washroom to wash my face, I was just about to rub soap onto my face suddenly the lights went off and I was all alone in the dark. I almost cried out with fear but controlled myself. I closed my eyes and prayed. Just then my friend came, looking for me, with a lighted candle in her hand. It was as if my prayers had been answered.
