Yes, I believe in guardian angels. Matthew 18:10 in the Bible reads, "See
that you not despise any of these little ones [speaking about children],
for their angels behold the face of God at all times." Geneses 28:12, in
Jacob's dream he describes angels, descending and ascending into heaven. Genesis
32:1, angels came and met Jacob to help him and his brother Esau mend their
relationship. Psalms 91:11 reads, "God shall give his angels charge over
thee, to keep thee in all thy ways." Yes, we have guardian angels. Yes, I
have experienced mine. I have been protected from death and other bodily
harm that only could have been prevented due to spiritual intervention that
logical rationalization cannot do away with. Yes, I know that they are
real and yes, one day we shall be judges over them. God created angels to
do God's work in heaven and on earth.

As a Christian I believe in guardian angels we are not to worship, pray to them or contact them. There are increasing numbers of classes and groups that are getting in touch with their guardian angels.
The following scriptures, and my life experiences have confirmed there are guardian angels. I have been saved from death, and recently from killing a pedestrian.
Genesis 19:16-29. The angels saved Lot and his family from Sodom and Gomorrah so they would not be destroyed in the brimstone and fire.
Daniel 3:28-30. The angels delivered Shadrach, Meshack and Abednego from the fiery furnace.

I believe in guardian angels, I believe that you never know when you are
entraining an angel. Angels watch over all of us while we sleep and
during the course of our life. Through bad times and through good times
they are always there. You can give you guardian angel a personal name
that you want to call them and they will be there for you; I believe this
is God's love for us through our guardian angel.

I believe in guardian angels because they exist. They live in the spirit
world and around us all the time. Have you ever wondered why suddenly when
you tumble over something or stop just at the edge of a corner and you feel
like you lost your balance, but suddenly you gain it back? What
about the time you put on breaks just in the nick of time before
crashing your car while on the cell phone? These are just a few small
examples of why I believe in guardian angels. If we really take time out
and listen, guardian angels are talking to us all the time. Some call it

At the University of the South in Sewanee, Tennessee, the entire campus
believes in guardian angels. Sewanee (as it is affectionately known) is
owned by the Episcopal Church and in the center of campus is a university
chapel with a great student choir. Angels (and some ghosts) abound. There
are about 1,400 students on campus. Sewanee is believed to be a special
place and students only need their angels when they leave campus. As they
go through the formal stone gates on either side of campus, they touch the
roof of their car to "get their guardian angel." When they return to
campus, they again touch the roof to "put up their angel." One of the
student service organizations is called the Angel Team and its special task is to host university guests. Each guest is assigneda "Guardian Angel."

Yes, I believe in guardian angels! After a successful surgery at Hopkins a
few months ago, a clueless resident doctor put me on a lethal combination of
medication while in the hospital. Two days after my surgery I seemed to be
doing okay. I was no longer on any monitors and ready to be discharged the
next day. That night, however, I went into complete respiratory arrest.
At 1:30 a.m., my overnight nurse, Heather, got a strange
feeling she had a very strong urge to check on me. When she came into my
room I was completely unresponsive not breathing, questionable pulse,
cold and blue. There had to be some kind of spirit or angel that brought
her to me if she had waited a few extra minutes, it would have been
