Bicycle tourers use the phrase, "trail angels," for people who help the bicyclists along the way. These angels appear unexpectedly and just when they are needed. If I am on my spiritual practice, I find that I have a better chance to be one of these angels for people who are trying to find or get a better relationship with God. For one, I am a bit more selfless, that is, I am open to the unexpected person who is in need of some direction or release of anxiety. When I am all about me, skipping prayer, I am little help to anyone. My Guardian Angel has its hands full when I am full of myself. Prayer early in the morning tends to get me out of my own way so I am more approachable.
