These are angels who offer help by providing bowels of mercies(a term found in Col 3: 1). The word bowels were used by the Hebrews to describe the seat of the tenderer affections, esp. kindness, benevolence, compassion. A person with bowels of mercies has a tender heart (Strong’s in blueletterbible.org).
Bowels of mercies are expressed by these angels as they offer help to individuals who are sick, in need of comfort, support, finance etc.
There are biblical examples of there activities. For example, as Elijah lay under a juniper tree in a state of depression, an angel brought him food and water two times to prevent him from starving to death (1 Kings 19: 5-8). As Hagar and Ishmael lay in the desert dying from dehydration, the angel of the Lord called to her out of heaven and God showed her a water source, allowing them to live (Gen 21: 16-19).
Jesus himself experienced the ministry of compassion from angels as they brought Him food at the end of His fast in the wilderness and helped to strengthen Him in the Garden of Gethsemane as He prepared for His death.
These angels will make you laugh if you are sad, accompany you on journeys and make sure that you are safe and sound. Angels, we love you!
