Collection of Angel Encounters and Sightings Part 3

God Answers Our Prayers in His Timing

I prayed that God would show me an angel, and he did, twice, many years after I prayed for this. Both encounters happened when I was sleeping.

I suppose angels will come to visit us on occasion when we would be most relaxed and receptive to their visitations. The first encounter I had, I was in a dream state walking along a dark path at night. Then suddenly, the entire environment setting lit up with incredibly pure bright light as if the sun itself was shining on me.

Suddenly, I woke up, but no one was in the dark bedroom that I could see. So I asked in bewilderment, "What is it?" as if it was someone I was speaking to. No voice or words came forth, but the angel conveyed thoughts and pictures to my mind telepathically, showing me that I left the side door of the garage open with a picture in my mind. I was reminded to close the door and to lock it. So, I thanked the angel and got out of bed and, sure enough, the door was wide open.—Jeff

Red Lights

When I am at work, I encounter a very intense, red light which shines for about 4 seconds and then disappears. When I have seen this light, I have asked others present if they could see it, but they all say, "No." I wondered if I was seeing things, so I don't always say something when it appears. But, a couple of weeks ago, it appeared, and one of the people with me saw it. In the building where I work, it is impossible for this light to shine in. I saw it again, but no one else has.—A. Yates

Death Angel

When I was 20 years old, I was almost 9 months pregnant. I was sitting in my bed, wide-awake. A vision of a—well, the best way I can explain it—a bright light came into my room. The vision, as best I can say, was like a man, but his facial features were lion-like and it seemed to have a bright light shining through. I don't know how else to explain it. I wish I could draw it, but I'm not artistic. I am 42 years old now. This has haunted me to this day. That night, my baby died due to the umbilical cord. An angel took him, I've no doubt at all.—Sara Scully


When I was younger, I was going through a lot of things that a young, 16-year-old girl shouldn't have to endure; You can try to imagine. My mother and I were arguing a lot. She was very angry because she was going through things of her on. She took it out on my little brother and me.

I went to sleep one night after crying and praying to God; I prayed for hours until I drifted off to sleep. I woke up in the middle of the night to a bright light in my doorway. It was so bright that I had to squint my eyes to look at this beautiful light. Then, a very tall—what appeared to be a man—walked out of the light to the edge of my bed and kneeled down over me. He spoke my name and put his hand on my arm and started to whisper something in my ear. I could not understand what he was trying to tell me because as soon as he touched my arm I started feeling really tired and fell back to sleep. He made me feel so much comfort. I still think of my angel until this day.—Erica

The Presence

Not long ago, my father was diagnosed with stage 4 bladder cancer and was not given much hope for survival past the Christmas season. Although the odds were devastatingly against him, he chose to go through a round of chemo to take some comfort in the idea that he tried everything he could to be cured. Although God had other plans, I take comfort in my faith that he will be taken care of by Christ and the angels themselves.

I was up in the wee hours of the morning after not being able to sleep in my unending thoughts and prayers. I stood in my driveway in the moonlight and meditated with chills indicating the presence of the Holy Spirit. As I prayed, my cat kept clawing and biting my ankles. I then, telepathically, said, "Jesus, can you please stop this annoying cat from biting my ankles while I am trying to talk to You?" At that very second, the cat refrained and sat up in a calmed state, although he still followed me as I strolled about the driveway. Coincidence?—johnowl01

Angel in the Navy

In 1974, while stationed in Pearl Harbor, someone I had been drinking with spiked my wine with LSD. He did so with several others. We all went back to the base barracks, and some of the guys were going crazy. I prayed for help. A sailor opened his door and asked what was wrong. I told him. He asked me to get everyone and bring them to his room. I did. He asked if we believed in God. We all shared our experiences about God, and that is when I noticed I was sober. It was way too soon for the LSD to wear off, it can be an 18-hour experience. It had only been a few hours since our drinks had been spiked.

The next day, I went to the room to thank the guy. When I went to the room, no one had been in that room for months. I was in communications, and there had been no ship movements. No one, but the guys who had their drinks spiked, remembers the man. It has been a mystery for nearly 40 years. There can be only one explanation, that sailor was either a ghost or an angel. Because of how he spoke of God, I believe he was an angel.—Gordon Marble

My Father Came to Me

My father passed away on February 1, 2012. Soon afterward, I had a dream that my father was waiting for me, but the closer I came to him the further he moved away. He was standing at the top of a flight of stairs which was very high and I could not get to him. It was as if he was watching over me. Then, a few nights ago, he appeared as an angel to my mom's neighbor who was sleeping in mom's bed. He just stood there, and then disappeared, after she told him my mom is being taken care of by me and she is fine. I miss him so much.—Sharon

Moonville Ohio Angels

Moonville, Ohio, is an old town that was overtaken by a plague, almost everyone died. All that is left of the town is a tunnel. We went through the tunnel, and three of my grandsons climbed the hill to the top. There was a thin beam of light that looked like a sword. It was right in front of us. I couldn't see when I looked up to take the picture, the light was so bright. I took the picture anyway.

When we got back to our cabin, I looked at the picture, there was a bubble in the middle of the thin beam of light, it was right in front of my grandson, Jordan. Jordan lost his father at 9 months old, he killed by a train. When I blew up the picture there were angels as plain as day looking right at Jordan. My 5-year-old granddaughter Masyn said, "I told you, Mommy, I saw an angel." I have the picture of the angels in the bubble, I want to share with the world. What a blessing we saw at Moonvill that day.—DianeVentura

Angelic Words

My angel spoke to me once and told me his name. It happened when I came back from shopping. My mom told me to ask who my angel was. I was barely forming the question when he told me one name, Gabriel. Afterward, I could feel him standing near me in a soft light with golden swirls.—Shassari

Digital Angel

Well, I had two angels. One, when I was 10 and I heard someone whisper my name but no one was there. My angel communicates with me by using digits on the clock. Last night, I was on my iPod and I randomly felt someone lightly squeeze or touch my arm. I was confused at first and started looking around but no one was there, so I looked at the time it was 2:23. I just missed 2:22, one of the times when they let me know they're there. I was amazed.—Courtney

Bus Stop Angel

I had a difficult two years full of losses, sadness, and major changes. I was recently diagnosed with depression. I had some very strange experiences and some moments of pure bliss.

One day, I was sitting at the bus stop and something that I couldn't see sat next to me. Something so beautiful that I felt pleasure and tingling all along that side. A very spiritual friend said it was evil, but I didn't feel it as evil. I think it was an angel that wanted to guide me. It has done just that through a chance encounter with a friend of a friend who has set me on the right path to healing all my hurt and resolving my depression and more. This friend of a friend is like an angel here on earth for me.—Rosalola

Angel Helps Me Save My Son's Life

My son called me because he wanted to die, but after trying to convince him that I should fly there to help with the children he hung up. My 7-year-old grandson called me crying and said, "Please, Grandma, come!"

I called the airlines and had to be at the airport for the last 9 p.m. commuter plane. The terminal was under construction so I was left at a shuttle site in the parking lot in the pouring rain. It was 8:45 p.m. I had never used this airport so I was terrified and began crying.

A woman appeared from the black of night and said, "Why are you crying?"

I replied, "I don't know where to board the plane!"

She asked me my flight information, then said, "Don't worry, I'll get you there." Then, a shuttle showed up! She got me to the terminal, and I was the last to board. I stayed up all night with my son, then I called the suicide line at 4 a.m. convincing him to talk with a psychiatrist. A friend came by, went to talk with him, and came out with a loaded gun and sleeping pills that he talked him into giving up! An angel saved him! ~Ruth K
