i never pray to my angel(except to give thanks). im sure he is busy, and so i try to leave him alone. however, i asked for my angel to walk with me the next day when i said my nightly prayers, for something specific, and boy did he! my car was in the shop getting fixed, so i had to drive my "backup" car that hadnt been driven/started in about 6 months, or more. so, as i drove, a tire went flat, with a HUGE hole. a boy about 12 stopped to help me, and informed me he lives down the street, AND works on cars with his dad. unbeknownst to me, i had 2 lugnuts a different size from the other 3. he helped me change the tire with seperate lugnuts, AND jump my car. and as i left to go to the store, a man insisted on going the wrong way on a one way, and at the very last minute swerved to avoid a head on collision with me! i know my angel is there at all times, but i sure am glad i specifically asked for them to walk with me, because i needed help only GOD can provide!
