Question:  Is there an angel for good luck?


Christians don’t believe in luck as the Chinese and Hindus believe in luck. Christians believe in a God who is a loving Father who made us His adopted sons and daughters through Baptism. At the instant of our conception, God gave each one of us our own guardian angels whose primary job is to help us go to heaven. Demons are angels who disobeyed God by their own free will at the beginning of time, and because of their great intelligence which surpasses human intelligence, their choice is irrevocable–once and for all. Misery seeks company: demons wants us to disobey God, too, and suffer with them in Hell for eternity. If God would abandon us to the power of demons, they can easily make a mincemeat of us as what happened to Job: his possessions were taken away, his children were killed in a natural calamity, and even his skin became filled with sores. The demons can also control our imagination and tempt us to despair. This would be a lopsided battle. That is why God gave each one of us our own guardian angel. If we pray to him often and ask his help, he will always be ready to help us and protect us, if it is for the good of our souls. You thought you were lucky that the car missed you by an inch or you were late for the plane that crashed or you were not able to read a magazine that would lead you to sin. But this is not luck; this is the work of our guardian angels. Thus, in times of danger, such as when you cross the street or make life-changing decisions, it is always recommended to pray to our guardian angels:

Angel of God, my guardian dear, to whom God’s love commits me here, ever this day, be at my side to light, to guard to rule and guide. Amen.

    So if there is bad time does it mean the guiding angel is been wicked? Please answer me.

    Our guardian angels are always good and looks after our welfare; they can never be wicked; Demons are angels who disobey God; their choice is irrevocable–they are always wicked. God allows bad things to happen to our lives in order to create a greater good in the end. But this does not in anyway justify those bad things. Our attitude towards events must be like that of Job: “”Naked I came forth from my mother’s womb, and naked shall I go back again. The LORD gave and the LORD has taken away; blessed be the name of the LORD!” (Job 1:21)

    My Friend,

    Please remember that do not piece-meal quote nor quote of context from the good book, especially one as complicated as The Book of Job unless you end up like eli and other quasi pastors quasi evangelists like those who lured pacquiao and his family.

    Once again, I iterate that I BELIEVE that your heart is in the right place… but you have to be better, otherwise you seem to be disrespecting the holy spirit who guided the human author (or authors) who gave us the Book of Job.

    1Then the LORD answered Job out of the storm and said:

    2 Who is this who darkens counsel

    with words of ignorance?

    3 Gird up your loins now, like a man;

    I will question you, and you tell me the answers!

    “then he looked up to heaven and groaned, and said to him, “Ephphatha!” (that is, “Be opened!”)”
