DO YOU BELIEVE THESE 2 SHORT ACCOUNTS OF ANGEL PROTECTION?
Psalm 91:11-12 For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways; they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.
Here are two true accounts of frightening situations where women found themselves in. These women could have easily become another statistic. Since the dawning of time women have been at a distinct disadvantage in having the means of protecting themselves. Somehow I doubt pepper-spray would have saved them from harm. Both stories are taken from the book Angels are for real by Judith MacNutt
In 1999 I took a year off work for a five-month mission trip to the Ukraine. I quickly found work in a newborn orphan nursery at Hospital #10. With the help of my interpreter, I learned how to get to work on my own, which was rather simple, as the bus stop was directly in front of the hospital. Most days, though, my wait to return home was considerable because the buses were often too crowded to cram in one more body.
It was summertime, so the weather was often sunny and warm. Beside the hospital was a very inviting, paved path down a slope that led into a lovely treed area. One beautiful afternoon, having watched two full buses already go by without stopping, I found myself staring at the lovely path to the park. I knew it was foolish and possibly dangerous to go there alone, but I had twenty minutes until the next bus would arrive. I realized that I could take a short walk and still catch the bus home.
Walking alone in the lovely cool shade of the trees and enjoying Gods creation, I noticed...

I love stories like this. Yes, I believe them.Thanks for posting.
How come you didn't post your whole piece? What's wrong with it?
Is there porn or Scientology or something?
That a prophetic scripture for Jesus. The Passover lamb has no scars or broken bones.
while standing on the subway in phila. decided to get off. the next train would be less crowded and have seats. when i got off there was NO ONE on the platform but 7 black teens at the end . as soon as the doors closed i knew i was in serious trouble. they immediately began walking towards me. they began to surround me when one black youth began to talk to me while constantly moving around keeping his friends from me. it was the longest 5 minutes of my life. we all got on the subway and when i got off i turned to this gentleman and just said two words. thank you. i know he knew i was just saved thanks to him. that day he was my guardian angel.
Right? If it were meant to apply to us, every Christian could get angry and call God a liar the first time we stumble and fall.
I’m not saying God and the angels don’t watch out for us, but they never promised to keep us safe from earthly harm. In fact, they promised us hardship and scorn in this world if we follow God, though God promised to sustain us through those hardships.
When he finally got to the states and we could be with him, he woke up one evening and asked me who that guy was standing behind me. There was no one else in the room at the time. I am 1000% sure it was his own angel watching over him.
He was finally released from the hospital this past May, after 54 weeks. He is my miracle and NO ONE can tell me there is no God. I've seen too much.
As a Mother of a Marine, so glad that your son is home now..thanks for sharing your story. God Bless you and your family. Semper FI...
Maybe there are TROLLS grumbling about ready to pounce on the unsuspecting.
There are times you are spot on to nail Bpimps, however it's not every single time.
Let go of your anger. Preferably not towards another Freeper.
Thank you, I love our troops!
|Angel of God,
my guardian dear,
To whom God's love
commits me here,
Ever this day,
be at my side,
To light and guard,
Rule and guide.

The Reader's Digest had a story many years ago on this subject and one that I still remember was about a family on vacation. Suddenly, one of the kids started getting violently sick and as they were on the highway in a strange part of the country, they had no idea where to get off to get help. But soon they started seeing signs that said a hospital was coming up and they followed the signs and made it to the hospital in time for the child to get needed medical care and because of that, he survived. As they later were talking to the attending doctor, the mother commented on how fortunate they were to see the signs that led them to the hospital. "What signs?", the doctor said, "There are no hospital signs on that highway.". When the family left the hospital, they retraced their trip and, just as the doctor said, they could not find the signs that they ALL saw the day before. THAT was an act of angels!
Praise the Lord for your son’s miracle! Thank him for me and tell him how much his sacrifice means to me and how very much I respect and honor his service. God bless you, too, for being the parents of such a man as Him. I pray you have many, many years of joy and happiness ahead of you all!
When my brother was dying of brain tumors he was at Duke university hospital. He was unattended in a room on the table for awhile. He moved then fell . Because he was so so weak he could not get back up. He was there for a while. A " intern " was in the room picked him up like he was light as a feather put him back. He had a special presence. The man stayed helped out until others came. My brother got a name from him.
Later my brother thanked everyone then mention this man's name. They all looked puzzeled. Nobody ever heard of him. They looked it up no name on the Hospital records.
Great story of faith! Thanks for sharing!
Great post! I am reading some.
O HOLY Guardian Angel, my dear friend and solicitous guide on the dangerous way of life, to thee be heartfelt thanks for the numberless benefits which have been granted me through thy love and goodness and for the powerful help by which thou hast preserved me from so many dangers and temptations.
I beg of thee, let me further experience thy love and thy care. Avert from me all danger, increase in me horror for sin and love for all that is good.
Be a counselor and consoler to me in all the affairs of my life, and when my life draws to a close, conduct my soul through the valley of death into the kingdom of eternal peace, so that in eternity we may together praise God and rejoice in His glory.
Through Jesus Christ Our Lord. Amen.
