I referred him to the story of Elisha and his attendant? They were surrounded by an army, but Elisha was not frightened. He told the attendant “Do not fear, for those who are with us are more than those who are with them.” He prayed that God would open the attendant’s eyes and God did.“And the Lord opened the servants eyes and he saw and behold the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha. (2 Kings 6)”
