What Do Guardian Angels Do When We Sleep? Do Angels Protect Us?

What do Guardian angels do when we sleep? Do we know what God's messengers do when we close our eyes and sleep? Do angels get tired and sleep too? Have you ever wondered if the angel guardians protect us, especially when we are sleeping and not really paying attention to our spiritual needs and faith expressions?


Have you ever asked what your Guardian angel is doing when you go to sleep? Imagine you have been working hard and right after you eat you decide to take a nap.

Does your angel guide take a break when you go to bed at night, from watching you and protecting you?  And what about all the other humans in the world. Are there enough angels to go around?

And while you may be wide a wake and thinking about your angel somewhere in the world on the night side, millions of folks are sleeping right now. So, where is their guardian angel?

Angels Not Limited By Physics, Space, Time

While we are limited by the laws of physics like time, space, motion, and travel times our guardian angels being spiritual beings are infinite just like God their creator.

Angels do not experience the limitations of the body like you and I. Every faith teaches that their spiritual guides are infinite and timeless. 

The Christian faith teaches in the Bible in Hebrews 13:8 "Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever."

The Jewish Old Testament tells us this about God in Isaiah 40:28 "Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth Does not become weary or tired His understanding is inscrutable."


The Muslim faith in the Koran says this about God "Nothing in the heavens or on earth can induce weakness or impotence in God; indeed, God is all-knowing and all-powerful." (35:44)

Angels are spiritual beings and have their origin in heavenly places. They do not have limits as we do from our physical limits imposed by our five senses.

Angels Watch Over Us When We Sleep

There are stories of people waking up in the middle of the night and seeing an image of a guardian angel sitting at the end of the bed and watching them as they slept.

Of course trusting in the angels caring for us when we sleep is a step of faith and trust that God gives us the best in life so we can live a life of fullness and peace.

Believing In angels Watching Over Us Helps Us live Well

Just the mere though of having a spiritual guide can already lift up people's heavy hearts. Believing that God is always looking out for us can give you strength and hope even in life's most difficult ties.
