Q: Can angels save us from physical harm?

A:  

Thanks for writing to us here at TruthBook with your question about angels; it sounds like you have a lot to be grateful for!

There's no way for me to know what the angels have been doing on your behalf, but you are certainly not alone in feeling that these heavenly friends have had a part in your life. Many people feel this way, and I don't doubt that the angels play an important part in our lives.

As you know, The Urantia Book is a great source of information about angels. One of the things we read about angels is this:

113:5.4 In the life of the flesh the intelligence of angels is not directly available to mortal men. They are not overlords or directors; they are simply guardians. The seraphim guard you; they do not seek directly to influence you; you must chart your own course, but these angels then act to make the best possible use of the course you have chosen. They do not (ordinarily) arbitrarily intervene in the routine affairs of human life. But when they receive instructions from their superiors to perform some unusual exploit, you may rest assured that these guardians will find some means of carrying out these mandates.
