We all need something to believe in, when hope withers and despair seems to be creeping over our conscience. In times of crisis, when we begin to lose faith in ourselves we let go of our ego and seek help from God. We demand that we may be protected and saved, and that we be pardoned for the sins we have committed in this life.
Humans have believed in the divine presence of guardian angels since before antiquity and there have been instances where pious Christians have made claims of having interacted with their individual guardian being. If that be the case, it would suffice to say that the angels come to those who truly seek them, and protect all those who need them. For those who haven't seen one but ardently believe in their existence, a simple gesture of faith can be to get inked with an angel tattoo.
