From Chicken Soup for the Soul Daily Inspirations for Women

September 17

Dear Lord, could you please send two angels to protect my daddy?”

I asked my girls to pray this prayer every day while my husband was gone, and I repeated a similar prayer many times throughout the day.

Two weeks after my husband’s return from Baghdad, he told a story of how he returned to his trailer after midnight and felt that there was an intruder in his small living quarters. His search revealed nothing, so he prepared for bed. One hour later he was awakened by gunfire. Lying on his belly with his weapon drawn, he was never afraid.

My daughter asked how this was possible.

My husband said that he could feel someone in the room protecting him. Actually, he said, it felt more like two.“Daddy’s angels,” my daughter said quietly.
