Praise and glory to you, O God our loving Father! Thank you for sending us your Archangels Michael, Gabriel, and Raphael for your special messages of protection, love and healing for us all though we are not always available. But most of all, we praise and thank you for sending us your Son Jesus Christ whom we may consider as the "Archangel" of archangels - your ultimate Messenger of your truth and love for us. Through him, You O God had come to us; through him, with him and in him, we are able to come to you, dear Lord.
A surging stream of fire flowed out from where he sat; thousands upon thousands were ministering to him, and myriads upon myriads attended him. The court was convened, and the books were opened. As the visions during the night continued, I saw one like a son of man coming, on the clouds of heaven. When he reached the Ancient One and was presented before him, he received dominion, glory, and kingship; nations and people of every language serve him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion that shall not be taken away, his kingship shall not be destroyed.Daniel 7:10, 13-14
Help us in our unbelief, in our little faith in you, dear God; through Jesus, open your heaven for us and let us be like your Archangels in these troubled times of the pandemic: amid the many occasions of sins and the seeming reign of evil, let us be like Archangel Michael fighting satan in your name to ward off his devious attacks that fragment our relationships; let us be like Archangel Gabriel delivering your messages of faith, hope and love to so many people awaiting salvation; and last but not least, Father, let us be like Archangel Raphael bringing healing to the many ailments and diseases that afflict not only our bodies but most especially our hearts and souls that prevent us from becoming truly free and faithful to love and serve you. Amen.
