A page created on Facebook called 'Jesus Daily' is proving very popular among people interested in a little heavenly intervention during their social network fix.

In fact, the number of 'Likes', comments and 'Shares' for Jesus Daily have surpassed even heavyfringedboywonderthing Justin Bieber's Page in the past three months, according to AllFacebook.com.

As noted by the New York Times, the page was created by 41-year-old North Carolina resident Aaron Tabor, who claims to be a diet doctor.

He hosts his food-for-slimmers biz on a separate Facebook page, which sadly didn't make the top 10 on AllFacebook's chart.

Jesus Daily, which has 8.4 million fans, isn't the only Facebook page preaching about Guardian angels and virtual hugs with the holy one.

There's also plenty of worship for pages that include The Bible, Manchester United, Lil Wayne and Lady Gaga.

But Jesus Daily remains at the top spot, where it has reigned over mere Facebook mortals for more than 18 weeks. ®
