We can trust that God and His angels are watching over us and will guide and protect us through whatever trials we may face.

During times of fear or uncertainty, we can find comfort in knowing that we have angelic protection. We can pray for God to send His angels to watch over us and keep us safe. And we can trust in His promise to never leave us or forsake us.
