Protecting a Soldier in War
From the Sepher Ha-Razim
If you wish to protect a soldier who is going to war from all harm, call upon these angels, who stand upon the ninth step of the second firmament. These angels are helpful to anyone who approaches them in purity, so you need not appeal to the overseer of the second firmament, or "Heaven of Heavens" as it is also called. These angels may be addressed directly.

They wear breastplates and carry swords in their hands, prepared for war, sometimes holding bows and javelins, and they leap forth from the fire. They right horses of fire, and the harnesses of their chariots are of fire, and they bring terror with them wherever they go.
These angels protect soldiers in battle, if you call upon them. To call upon them, take seven leaves of a bay tree and write the names of these angels upon them, two names to each leaf, and place them in spikenard oil. On the day the soldier goes forth to war, smear the oil on his/her flesh and weapons. Write the names of the angels again on a silver lamella, put the lamella in a bronze tube, and let the soldier wear it over his/her heart. No injury will come to the soldier.
