Five Encounters with Guardian Angels
No evil shall be allowed to befall you,no plague come near your tent. Scripture is filled with God’s messengers coming to Earth – from the angel placed at the entrance to Eden all the way through the apocalyptic vision of John. We read about these beings intervening in human affairs, both protecting and disciplining. We don’t hear a lot of that today, and it’s easy to wonder when or if angels are commissioned. These stories and videos provide testament of people’s experiences.
When Bruce van Natta counts his blessings, he’s not quite sure where to begin. A diesel rig mechanic, Bruce was working on a lifted semi-truck when the jacks strained under the weight. The improperly mounted truck slipped off and Bruce was pinned beneath over 15,000 pounds of steel. As his coworkers rushed to save him, Bruce was at complete peace. To see Bruce recount his story, check out the video here.

Prayers to Our Guardian Angel – Family Life Ministry
Prayer is essential in our relationship with God and a necessary spiritual component of our daily Orthodox life. We also have a faithful guardian assigned to each of us by God to aid us in our journey and to protect us. Our guardian angel should also be included in our daily prayers. For without our prayer life with God and our prayers to our own guardian angel, we leave ourselves at risk to temptation and many others dangers – both spiritual and physical. Pray for me to the Lord, that He may make me worthy of the grace of the All-Holy Trinity, and of the blessed Mother of God, and of all the saints.
During Great Lent, Orthodox Christians embrace a heightened and more disciplined spiritual inventory and reflection as well as increased prayer and worship in preparation for Great and Holy Pascha: the Resurrection of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. What better time than now – during our Lenten journey – to take these prayers to heart and to memory; teach your children these prayers, teach by example and pray as a family.
