The latest poll on angels reveals that eight out of ten people believe in angels. I am a firm believer in these spiritual beings since I have had numerous encounters with God’s divine messengers.
Nola shared her favorite story, involving her daughter, Nicole, who was two years old at the time of her first angel experience. Nicole was born with very fine hair which resulted in having a tangled mess on the back of her head every time she woke up in the morning. It was unbelievably challenging to a comb through that rat’s nest!
The two have them had a nightly ritual which was giving Nicole a bath, followed by the reading of bedtime stories while sitting in their favorite, cozy rocking chair. On this particular night, Nola was reading aloud about God, Jesus, and the angels. She was explaining to her little girl that Jesus loves children so very much that when a baby is born, God assigns a guardian angel to watch over them. God cares so much about each of us that He even knows how many strands of hairs we have on our head.
It suddenly occurred to me that this would be the perfect opportunity for Nicole to learn first-hand that God is real and so are His angels. So I stepped out in faith and I asked Nicole, “Would you like to wake up in the morning and not have a rat’s nest in your hair?” She nodded enthusiastically, yes. I said, “Okay, Nicole, let’s pray to Jesus then!” She gently closed her eyes and bent her head down as she placed her hands in prayer position.
I said, “Nicole, repeat after me: ‘Dear Jesus, thank you for sending angels to comb my hair during the night to keep the rats out of my hair. And all God’s children said, Amen.” She repeated the little prayer word for word. As I tucked her into bed I thought to myself, okay God I KNOW you can do this.
The next morning, I was awakened at 5:30 a.m. with Nicole leaning over me with her face about two inches from mine. She had a big smile on her face and she said, “Mommy, see if I have rats in my hair!” I asked her to turn around and let me take a look. As she turned, I said, “Nicole, your guardian angel must have combed your hair all night long, because I don’t see a single rat! What do you think about that?” She gave me a great big hug, climbed on the bed, and started jumping up and down while singing, “Jesus Loves Me This I Know.” I joined her and we both thanked God for answering our prayers.
This was a perfect lesson in learning that God cares about every aspect of our lives and is faithful in answering prayers. It has now been 24 years since my daughter had her first encounter with angels and to this day she has not experienced a single “rat’s nest” in her hair.
