There are several incidents in scriptures where God/nature helps immediately in case of any danger or panic situation if one prays for help.
I can provide three such examples from Mahabharata:
#1: Krishna helping Draupadi by providing a saree.
#2: Krishna helping Draupadi from Durvasa's anger.
#3: Nature helping Damayanthi from a person in the forest.
There are numerous such incidents in which God helps immediately. But in each case, I can notice that help is offered to the person only if there is a deposit of Punya/tapas, etc.,
Are there any instances in scriptures where God helps a person, who prayed God in a panic situation, with no deposit of Punya available?
