Angels are known as God’s messengers on earth and they have played a vital role in the scriptures when it concerns instructing God’s people and guiding them. In the old testament, Angels were virtually the role of the Holy Spirit in this day. Regardless of the Holy Spirit’s presence in us, God still uses His Angels for our help.

Pray that God will send His Angels to deliver you from all harm and keep you safe for the assignment that He has entrusted into your hands.
24. Psalms 34 verse 7

30. Psalms 78 verse 25
