Are the Angels Assigned to the Lord’s Prayer also the Angels for Protection?

We read in Psalm 91:11-12 that God sends angels to protect us:

11 For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways. 12 They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone. (Psalm 91:11-12)

From Bible Hub, we get the interlinear version:

The Hebrew for “His angels” is מלאכיו (mal·’ā·ḵāw) gives the numerical equivalence 107. But the 107th number in base 8 is 153.

In an earlier article, we read that a belief in Judaism is that an angel is assigned to every prayer we utter. The angel presents the prayer in a pristine form to God. If so, then we can only come to the following stunning conclusion which essentially shows that not only an angel is assigned to Lord’s Prayer, but the angel also protects the person praying the Lord’s Prayer.

Conclusion: When we pray the Lord’s Prayer we know for sure that God will send an angel to us, and that that angel’s role is not only to present the Lord’s Prayer in its pristine form to Him, but also to protect us from the evil one.

The Lord’s Prayer and Conforming to the Image of the Son of God

In Genesis 1:27, we read:

So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

In Hebrew, the underline sentence “in his own image” is bə·ṣal·mōw, בְּצַלְמ֔וֹ. Its numerical equivalence is 168. But 168 is points to the Lord’s Prayer in the Gospel of Luke.

Now, we read in Colossians 1:15-16:

15 The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. 16 For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him.

And in Romans 8:28-20, we read:

28 And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. 29 For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters. 30 And those he predestined, he also called; those he called, he also justified; those he justified, he also glorified.

CONCLUSION When we pray the Lord’s Prayer, we conform to the image of the Son of God.

The Lord’s Prayer and the Supremacy of the Son of God

In Colossians 1: 15-20, we read:

15 The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. 16 For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him. 17 He is before all things, and in him all things hold together. 18 And he is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead, so that in everything he might have the supremacy. 19 For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him, 20 and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross.

Verse 16 clearly describes to the supremacy of the Son of God.

Now, the Epistle to the Colossians is the 51st book (KJV). Hence, we see that the identifier of the verses 15 to 20 is 417. (The precise definition of the identifier of a verse is given in the book.)


At verse 16, the sum is 135. The grand total is 417. But the 417th number in base 9 is 513. That is 417 = 5139. The numerals 135 and 513, as we showed in the book, produce the Lord’s Prayer prayer times {1.35pm, 1.53pm, 3.15pm, 3.51pm, 5.13pm, 5.31pm}.

CONCLUSION When we pray the Lord’s Prayer at the prescribed times, we proclaim the supremacy of the Son of God.

Is the Lord’s Prayer Already In Its “Pristine” Form?

A belief in Judaism is that prayers are not presentable to God unless they are “edited” by angels of God. The edited form is a prayer’s pristine form. The following paragraphs are taken from the article All About Angels by Lazer Gurkow posted up at Chabad.Org:

Our sages taught that every word of our prayers summons an angel who collects it, cleanses it and perfects it, and presents it to G‑d. If the word was enunciated improperly, the angel remolds it so that it is presented correctly. If it was said without proper mindfulness, or worse, if it was chanted with inappropriate thoughts, the angel removes the stray thought and presents the prayer to G‑d in pristine form. If it was said in a language other than Hebrew, the angel interprets it and presents it to G‑d in the Holy Tongue.

Knowing that every word of our prayer is examined by an angel for grammatical correctness and for proper concentration serves to enhance our mindfulness during prayer. It inspires us to be alert to the words of our prayer and to pray with complete devotion.

We can only come to the conclusion that since Jesus Christ is the Son of God Himself, when He taught His disciples His prayer (in Aramaic), it was already in pristine form, with no need for any editing by the angels.

When we pray the Lord’s Prayer now in English (or in any language) and in complete devotion, the angels assigned to us by God need only present the Lord’s Prayer in the Holy Tongue. Could this be the reason why the Lord’s Prayer is so powerful, with almost instantaneous result?

The Glory That Jesus Gave Us So That We May Be One

Before Jesus was betrayed and killed, He prayed for His disciples and for those who would believe in Him through His disciples (underlined text by the author):

20 “I do not pray for these alone, but also for those who will believe in Me through their word; 21 that they all may be one, as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You; that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me. 22 And the glory which You gave Me I have given them, that they may be one just as We are one: 23 I in them, and You in Me; that they may be made perfect in one, and that the world may know that You have sent Me, and have loved them as You have loved Me. (John 17:20 – 23, NKJV).

It is clear from verse 22 that it is the glory from the Father that will unite all the believers of Jesus Christ.

What is the glory that the Father gives the Son, who, in turn, gives to the believers to unite them?  

Now, the Greek for “glory” used in verse 22 is δόξαν (doxan) , whose definition and usage, according  to Strong’s Concordance 1391,  follow those of δόξα (doxa):

  1. Definitionopinion (always good in NT), praise, honor, glory
  2. Usagehonor, renown; glory, an especially divine quality, the unspoken manifestation of God, splendor.

According to the HELPS Word Studies for Greek, δόξα (doxa) literally means “what evokes good opinion, i.e. that something has inherent, intrinsic worth

Several commentators thus came up with the following answers to the question:

As Christ, according to his human nature, is termed the Son of God, he may be understood as saying: “I have communicated to all those who believe, or shall believe in me, the glorious privilege of becoming sons of God; that, being all adopted children of the same Father, they may abide in peace, love, and unity.” For this reason it is said, Hebrews 2:11, Christ is not ashamed to call them brethren. (Clarke’s Commentary)

And the glory which thou gavest me— With respect to my human nature, namely, to be a habitation of thyself by the Spirit; I have given them — Have bestowed on them the honour and happiness of having a measure of the same Spirit dwelling in them, enriching them with various gifts and graces, stamping them with thine image, and communicating unto them thy divine nature, 2 Peter 1:4. (Benson Commentary)

And the glory ... – The honor which thou hast conferred on me by admitting me to union with thee, the same honor I have conferred on them by admitting them to like union with me. (Barnes’ Commentary)

What is a means by which we can be one in Jesus Christ and therefore in the Father?

In verse 22, the last two words are “We are one”   (ημεις εν εσμεν). The total gematria of these three Greek words is 618.


But this numeral produces the set {6,1,8}, which is a permutation {1,6,8}; and the number 168 is the identifier of the Lord’s Prayer in the Gospel of Luke (see Table 3.8 of the book, e-copy):


In the book, we showed that:

The Lord’s Prayer is the foremost proclamation of our faith in the fulfillment of the will of His Father in His Son, Jesus Christ.


  1. Since the Lord’s Prayer is our proclamation of faith in Jesus Christ, that is, our Creed,  it is a means by which we are one in  Jesus Christ and therefore in the Father;
  2. The Lord’s Prayer unites all Christians.

It is interesting to note the following:

  1. The gematria of δόξαν (doxan) in John 17:22 is 135, a numeral with the set {1, 3, 5}, a permutation of which is {1, 5, 3}, which produces the number 153.
  2. The gematria of Hebrew for (sons of Elohim)  בְּנֵי הָאֱלֹהִים   (bni e-aleim), sourced from Genesis 6.4, is 153.
