Angels are messengers created and sent to us by God. They are like the laws of nature. They do not have free will as we do. Each angel has a specific task, often related to its name.
The list of names of angels used in this prayer is a subset of a comprehensive list of names of angels given to me several decades ago by a friend in the Old City of Jerusalem.
The purpose and goal of this prayer is to end addiction, dishonesty, hunger, ignorance, illness, poverty and war – and to elevate mankind with awareness, connection, happiness, justice, morality, peace and tolerance.
In order to accomplish this, we must let the angels loose by reading, reciting and sharing this prayer as often as possible.
By Joshua Persky
