The angels are the spirit servants in heaven.
~ The Urantia Book, 167:7.3 (1841.2)

The teaching about guardian angels is not a myth; certain groups of human beings do actually have personal angels. It was in recognition of this that Jesus, in speaking of the children of the heavenly kingdom, said: “Take heed that you despise not one of these little ones, for I say to you, their angels do always behold the presence of the spirit of my Father.”
~ The Urantia Book, 113:1.1 (1241.3)

Angels are so near you and care so feelingly for you that they figuratively "weep because of your willful intolerance and stubbornness." The seraphim act in your behalf quite independent of your direct appeals; they are executing the mandates of their superiors, and thus they function regardless of your passing whims or changing moods. This does not imply that you may not make their tasks either easier or more difficult, but rather that angels are not directly concerned with your appeals or with your prayers.
~ The Urantia Book, 113:5.2 (1246.1)

The angels develop an abiding affection for their human associates; and you would, if you could only visualize the seraphim, develop a warm affection for them.
~ The Urantia Book, 113:2.5 (1243.2)

The guardian of destiny influences you in every possible manner consistent with the dignity of your personality; under no circumstances do these angels interfere with the free action of the human will.
~ The Urantia Book, 113:5.1 (1245.7)
