QUESTION OF THE DAY
Kenneth's Partner Letter
- Believers' Academy
- Get Started
When you are abiding in God—obeying His Word, seeking Him with all your heart, loving Him and others—you have the right to utilize the ministry of angels God has provided. It’s part of your salvation package! He provided these powerful beings to aid you on the earth, to bless you, and to minister to you. If you haven’t been tapping into this powerful, supernatural resource, begin today with these five ways to put your angels to work.
1. Speak the Word
When you find yourself in a situation—one of possible physical danger, one where you need deliverance, or one where you require material or financial help— speak the Word only. And do so in faith. This allows your angels to minister to you on your behalf—to work for you, to intervene. When you speak against the Word of God, their hands are tied—they can’t move an inch to help you.
Gloria Copeland shares how she does this: “Whatever happens in my life—if I’m in danger—I don’t panic. I stay calm, and I start reciting Psalm 91. I say, ‘God is my refuge, God is my deliverance.’ It has saved my life before.”
Years ago, when she and Kenneth were getting ready to travel to South Africa, many people encouraged them to take security with them because it was volatile there at the time. Gloria responded, “I don’t go anywhere without security. Glory to God. Every time I go to the grocery store, I have security. The Bible says angels encamp around those who fear Him” ( Psalm 34:7 ).
2.Command your angels
Can you really do this? In short, yes. Keep in mind, you aren’t commanding them in the same way you are commanding and rebuking the devil. You are releasing them to do the work they’ve been assigned to perform on your behalf.
You have been given the authority of Jesus Christ, as an heir, and you can command your angels to move on your behalf to carry out the Word ( Psalm 103:20 ). Kenneth Copeland advises saying something like this: “In the Name of Jesus, ministering spirits, I assign you according to Hebrews 1:13-14 to see to it that I have protection in this car, in this airplane, in this building. I claim this right as an heir to salvation.”
3. Pray for angels
When you ask God to deploy your angels, He will do so. Jesus said God would have sent 12 legions of angels to His rescue had He asked for them. Prayer will release angels on your behalf ( Matthew 26:51-53 ). Every time you leave your house, ask that angels protect you in every vehicle you ride in, every building you walk in, and every situation.
4. Call on the Name of Jesus
The Name of Jesus catches the attention of God’s angels. They will respond to the Name above all names and come to your rescue ( Hebrews 1:6 ). The Name of Jesus is powerful! When you’re in a situation where you need help, call on His Name. He’ll send help your way!
5. Thank God for His help
When you trust and believe that God will send His angels to help you (Psalm 91:11), you are receiving their intervention by faith. Thank Him and praise Him because He has given His angels charge over you. Thank Him for providing you with an entire army to enforce what is rightfully yours.
Isn’t it good to know you don’t have to depend on your own abilities for protection and deliverance? Get your angels involved in your life. God’s will is for you to enjoy everything He provided through Jesus on the cross, and He’s provided all the help you’ll ever need!

Can We Command Angels?
Have you ever heard a person command angels to go protect someone? Or perhaps heard a minister order angels around during a deliverance prayer?
If so, have you stopped to wonder if Christians even have the authority to do so? Let’s see what Scripture teaches us about the subject.
The Assignment of Angels
Angels work on our behalf, but not on our command.
In hyper-charismatic circles, the practice of dispatching angels has become more and more common. But when we take a closer look at the Bible we see that this practice is actually not Scriptural.
The Bible is clear that God has given Christians authority over demons, but not over His angels.
Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you. Luke 10:19
When we study this topic in Scripture, we see that it was always the Lord who sent His angels to bring about deliverance or to fulfill His purpose. Men never commanded angels to help them. For instance, we see in the story of Lot that the angels forcefully grabbed Lot in order to bring him to safety when he refused to listen, but Lot never gave them orders to do so.
And while he lingered, the men took hold of his hand, his wife’s hand, and the hands of his two daughters, the Lord being merciful to him, and they brought him out and set him outside the city. Genesis 19:16
Another example is Peter. When Peter was in prison, he prayed to God and God sent an angel to break him out.
And when Peter had come to himself, he said, “Now I know for certain that the Lord has sent His angel, and has delivered me from the hand of Herod and from all the expectation of the Jewish people.” Acts 12:11
It is clear from these examples and many others found in Scripture, that we don’t dispatch angels. We never see men and women of God having the authority to do so; God always sent angels to those in need.
We don’t have Biblical authority to command angels.
As a matter of fact, we see Jesus, the Commander of angels, explaining during His arrest, that God is the only one who can dispatch them.
Or do you think that I cannot now pray to My Father, and He will provide Me with more than twelve legions of angels? Matthew 26:53
Angels do not work for us; they work for God. He tells them what to do and they listen to the voice of His commands.
Bless the Lord, you His angels, who excel in strength, who do His Word, heeding the voice of His Word. Psalm 103:20
Therefore, during deliverance, you can pray and ask the Father to send angels to help you according to His will and command; however, trying to command an angel to come down from heaven to help you fight is unauthorized and unscriptural. We have the Holy Spirit for that.
The Holy Spirit does not need help nor will He ever run out of power.
Instead of focusing on trying to summon an angel to intervene and fight for you, go back to Biblical methods of warfare, such as fasting and praying. Go back to relying solely on Him to intervene in your situation in whatever way He chooses.
Stay within the realm of your authority and let God dispatch angels at His will.

5 WAYS TO PUT YOUR ANGELS TO WORK!
Updated: Jan 13
Did you know you are meant to put Angels to work?
I know, crazy right! We need to tell Angel's what to do.... it's insane!!!
Shouldn't they be telling us what to do?
Most people would shake at the knees at the thought of telling an Angel what to do let alone seeing one with their own eyes. I have seen many Angels in my years of prayer and intercession and visions and noticed that most of the time when the Angels appear they wait for my instruction!
Are not all angels ministering spirits sent to serve those who will inherit salvation? Hebrew 1:14
Some people think Angels don't visit earth anymore, or only on very rare occasions to someone who is considered "holy," and are surprised when someone takes a photo of a light being in Church and claim that it is a hoax and just a Photoshop creation. But the Bible says not to be surprised, that we may be "entertaining Angels" and don't even know it!
...and I can tell you from my personal experience that this is very true!
In 2009, when God asked me to write my first book, "I was a Muslim then I found Truth," (on SALE today below), I met with an Editor at a coffee shop to discuss editing the book so that I could publish it. I couldn't help but sob uncontrollably when discussing the horrific events I went through and the painful memories of my past abuse, and remembering the violent way my Father treated my mother to then myself marrying a same abusive husband... we were cursed! We had to be! And I was baffled at the thought of writing a book and how I was ever going to do it through the emotional outpouring and the dreadful memories that I would need to relive through in order to get my story onto the page.
It was not going to be an easy task!
When suddenly I felt someone staring at me from the distance. I tried to ignore it but I couldn't shake it as it felt like their eyes were piecing my very soul... I had to turn back and look! I felt a little uncomfortable that someone was watching me so intently as I was pouring my heart out to my friend, and the Editor, who was keen to get the story on the pages, so I turned to face the person and see if there was anything it wanted to say.
To my surprise this middle aged Asian man, fairly stocky, smiled at me intensely with his wide eyed and friendly demeanor, with the happiest welcoming of smiles. He just kept nodding his head saying 'yes' directly at me, as though he was listening to our conversation and writing the book was the right thing to do. But he was so far away he could not have possibly been able to hear our conversation, especially over the busy coffee shop noises. So I turned to tell my friend, who was sitting right next to me, to have a look, but when we both turned back to look at him - he disappeared!
I realized it was an Angel! I got up and ran so fast to where he was sitting, but he wasn't anywhere to be seen, then quickly to the top of the stairs and outside the building, but he wasn't there either! I felt in my heart that I had just saw an Angel, and he was agreeing with the work that was about to be done! I was amazed, happy and suddenly the sobbing stopped! I believed even more in the book, and my fears subsided, and that it was God's will and plan for me.
Writing the book wasn't my idea - it was a God idea - so He sent the Angel as a confirmation that I was doing what He asked me to do. It was quite thrilling and very exciting to know God was on our side and I was about to fulfill His purpose and plan.
Jesus was very clear that He could call on Angels and they would appear to minister to Him. Twelve Legion of Angels is a lot of Angels! And as believers in Jesus, who gives you access to Father, the LORD of Hosts (Angels), you too can call on Angels and receive help from them!
Or do you think that I cannot call on my Father, and he will provide me here and now with more than twelve legions of angels ? Matthew 26:3
If you want to entertain Angels and actually put them to work to do things for you, then you have to agree with God, His Word, and take action so that they can manifest and come to help you achieve God's plans!
Bless the LORD, all his angels mighty in strength who carry out his word, who harken to the voice of His command. PSALM 103:20
Step 1: SPEAK THE WORD OF GOD OVER YOUR LIFE
In Hebrews 1, we see God tell us that Angels come to minister to us, but in order for them to take action, or direction, we must speak the word of God in Faith by agreeing with it. Why? Because they only do what the Father tells them to do, and as a son of God, a child of God, with the presence of God living inside you, you have permission and authority to speak to them and tell them what to do, that will encourage, and advance the Kingdom, help someone in need, and send someone a blessing.
The Bible says "angels encamp around those who fear Him” ( Psalm 34:7 ), fear as in reverence to God and once we Decree or Declare the word of God the Angels go to work!
Step 2: COMMAND YOUR ANGELS
Am I allowed to do this? Yes, you can.
Most people find this difficult to swallow. I was even at a deliverance session once, when a lady told me I must not command them - this is biblically incorrect, 1 Corinthians 6:3 tells us that we will in fact judge angels " Do you not know that we will judge angels? " Angels are servants of God, messengers, to bring us a message from God or minister to us, and we are sons of God, and as sons and daughters we have authority to tell them what to do. If not, how could we then stop the works of darkness from Lucifer and his fallen angels if we are just to be under their submission.
Jesus gave us the keys over Hell and it's Angels, which is the authority over them, we are to put Angels and demons in their place. If not we will just be walking in darkness and under Lucifer's evil commands and will never rise up and take our rightful place and overrule them.
If you know who you are in Christ and what authority you actually have on the Earth, you will be ruling over the supernatural realms, you will understand that Angels must adhere to your commands, even demons.
When Jesus was tempted, or let's say, confronted with Satan's testing in the desert, the second thing he tested Jesus with was to "throw himself down" off the highest point of the temple of the Holy City, because the Angels would come and lift Him up and nothing would harm him. Satan was testing his authority, and his divine sonship, for he said "if you are the son of God" [Matthew 4:1-11]. Satan knows the Bible and was actually using it against Jesus to see what He would do, but Jesus just responded back to him with scripture that counteracted his test and had nothing left to say, so he left him. Satan was put in place with the Word of God, which silenced his accusations and his voice, yet still the angels came and attended to Jesus.
We must learn from Jesus' example and do what he did! Command your Angels and put demons in their place!
Step 3: PRAY YOUR ANGELS TO BE DEPLOYED
When you ask God to deploy your angels, you are asking Him to send them out to help you, and He will. Just because you can't see them doesn't mean they are not there. In the Book of 2 Kings we read that Elisha's eyes were opened by Prophet Elijah's request to God, and in return Elisha sees horses and chariots of fire all around him, filled with Angelic presence and help! The battle would not be won by man, but with Angels!
Prayer releases Angels, so every time you leave home, or are at work, in a car, every building you walk in, in every situation, ask God to send you Angels to do a specific task, and He will. [ Matthew 26:51-53 ]
Step 4: CALL ON THE NAME OF JESUS
The Name of Jesus catches the attention of Angels! They know who He really is, do you?
One week in our church we did a fasting and prayer week for souls to be saved and that Sunday I saw explosive visions of Heaven. God on His throne with His scepter appeared, and the Seraphim Angels that stand behind Him, you know the ones with six wings and all those eyes - turned up! It freaked me out! The presence of God was so thick we were shaking in our seats and couldn't stop praying - it was amazing!
But as we prayed, I noticed that every time we said "Jesus" their eyes would quickly turn toward us. It was strange at first but they kept doing it every time we said His name, and they have a lot of eyes, so it was pretty scary and awesome at the same time. What power and authority we have in the name of Jesus, yet some people wield it like it doesn't mean anything. His name is the only name where every knee, creature, being, rock and tree will bow down, the King of kings, and Lords of lords. We need to understand how to use it, the authority and presence it holds, and that even Angels know the name and respond very quickly to it!!
Step 5: THANK GOD FOR HIS HELP AND FOR SENDING THEM
Being thankful and having gratitude gets you into the Courts of Heavens. It's not our authority that gets us in, but our humbleness and thankfulness of who God is, and what Jesus has done, that gives us 24 hour access. I have spent the last 3 years in the Courts of Heaven, presenting my cases and cleaning up our family bloodline, and what I learnt is that I got in by being a daughter of God, but I got more respect when I was thankful.
The first time I went up to the Courts of Heaven, I didn't know what I was doing and I simply stood outside the doors of the Court room, I wasn't even allowed in! I didn't know protocol, or legalities, that things were done in a specific order, or I had to wait my turn, just like down here in our own judicial system. But Jesus was with me and He sorted everything out, and ran the case for me, I still didn't even go in!
There are many courts, some with Angels, some with councilmen, council beings, a jury, visitors, and many different types of Courts for different situations, where some you are not even allowed to enter in like the High Supreme Court, until you reach a certain level of authority. WHY? Because you don't have the understanding of how to operate in them and everything said in there is legal. I wasn't allowed in to what I call the Galaxy Courtroom, where matters of the universe are discussed.
God, the Judge, is not going to let you sit on a throne, swearing and cursing, and destroying planet alignments because you are human, or a son or daughter of God. You need to learn their ways, the legal systems in place, because even Satan goes to court, accusing you day and night of all the wrongs things you have done on earth, and he is an Angel! But he does it legally.
Through thankfulness Daniel was given wisdom and power to understand dreams, King Solomon was given a Kingdom and wisdom beyond his age and years, and he judged the people righteously. Jesus broke bread and gave thanks the night before He would be crucified, the Israelite's brought sacrifices and thank offerings in the temple of God and in return they got God's presence!
Be thankful... it gets you heard!
Father, in the name of Jesus, I call upon a legion of ministering spirits to minister unto my situation (mention your situation here). I call on Angels from the Courts of Angels and assign them according Hebrews 1:13-14 to protect .......................... I claim this right as an heir to salvation to call on you so that you can minister to us. I release the Angels to protect, guide and minister to us. Thank you for sending your Angels to guide and protect us in Jesus mighty name!

Submission to the mission, commissioning angels.
But to which of the angels has He ever said, “Sit at my right hand until I make Your enemies a footstool for Your feet?” Are they not all ministering spirits, sent out to render service for the sake of those who will inherit salvation? (Hebrews 1:13-14)
Bless the Lord, you His angels, mighty in strength, who perform His word, obeying the voice of His word! Bless the Lord, all you His hosts, you who serve Him, doing His will. Bless the Lord, all you works of His, in all places of His dominion; bless the Lord, O my soul! (Psalm 103:20–22)

You Can Command Angels to Help You!
To understand how this works, first know what the Bible says about angels. Here are a few key passages:
Psalm 91:11-12 says that God gives His angels charge over you, to keep you and protect you. This Scripture passage says:
For He shall give His angels charge over you, to keep you in all your ways. In their hands they shall bear you up, lest you dash your foot against a stone.”
So angels are assigned to help you. We see this again in Psalm 104:4, which says of God:
Who makes His angels spirits, His ministers a flame of fire.”
So we know from that verse that His angels are spirits and ministers. We also know that angels heed the voice of God’s Word. Psalm 103:20 says:
Bless the Lord, you His angels, who excel in strength, who do His word, heeding the voice of His word.”
So, to recap: God has assigned angels to you. Their job is to keep you in all your ways and protect you. They literally bear you up in their hands. They are ministers, ministering to you, and they heed the voice of God’s Word.
To activate the ministry of angels and even command angels in your life, we also have to understand three things:
1. That angels heed the voice of God’s Word. This means that they move and work in response to God’s Word.
2. We ALSO have to understand that God’s Word is not hidden from us. It’s not something we have to wonder about. We have God’s Word in written format. It’s called the Bible, and it’s the inerrant, infallible Word of God.
3. Finally, we have to understand that God’s Word in your mouth is just as powerful as God’s Word in God’s mouth.
God’s Word is a living thing. Jesus said, “The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life” (John 6:63). And because God’s Word is a living thing, it carries the same power whether it comes out of God’s mouth or whether it’s repeated out of your mouth.
When we speak God’s Word–when we use God’s Word as the weapon that it is (Ephesians 6:17)–we can command angels, because they heed the voice of God’s Word.
That’s why I charge angels to help me–because God’s Word says they should (Psalm 91).
That’s why I charge angels to keep me and my family safe–because God’s Word says we have a right to safety. And that’s why it’s of UTMOST importance to hide God’s Word in your heart, that we might not sin against Him (Psalm 119:11).
If you don’t know what God’s Word says, then you can’t command angels to carry out God’s commands based on that Word. But if you have God’s Word in your heart, then:
1) you won’t sin against the Lord, and 2) you’ll have God’s own vocabulary already in your heart so you can put those angels to work on your behalf.
That’s why I never hesitate to command angels to help me …
… because I have God’s Word in my heart; and whether I’m quoting God’s Word verbatim or putting His Word into a sentence, I am still speaking God’s own commands to those angels. Also, that’s why those angels respond: because they heed the voice of God’s Word.
I’ve personally seen God send angels to help me in soooo many ways.
It would be impossible to describe them all. But here are a few examples:
I used to play different instruments in my former church’s orchestra (sometimes viola, sometimes percussion, sometimes a mallet instrument). Whenever I would go to play, I’d often be nervous because I didn’t want to mess things up! So I would always ask the Lord to send angels to help me play, and to actually play through me.
Whenever I prayed that prayer, I could always sense the answer. When I went to play, I could actually feel that my hands were being guided by the unseen hands of God’s angels … and the music worked out well every time!
Almost every day, I speak out a verbal command to the angels to perform God’s will in my life.
This is what I say when I command angels to work out God’s will:
“Angels of God, I charge you in Jesus’ name to watch over my husband and I, our family and loved ones, and the houses, cars, tenants, pets, and items God has blessed us with. Keep us safe from all harm, danger, mal-intent, and loss. Minister to us the blessings from the Lord in Jesus’ name, and do everything through us and for us today that needs to be done, according to Father’s will, in Jesus’ name.”
I said I do this “almost every day” because some days I forget. But you know what? Every day I remember, I can tell a noticeable difference in how my day goes and how much heavenly assistance I sense in my life.
And every day I forget, I notice later that I didn’t sense anywhere near the same level of assistance.
Example 3 of commanding angels to help you:
Some days, the Lord wakes me up earlier than usual and I can sense Him calling me to go into my study and pray. Sometimes, though, when this happens, I feel so tired that–although my spirit wants to obey–my body just does NOT want to obey at all.
So I lay there, trying to work up the courage to get up. Then I get all convicted because I’m disobeying the Lord by not obeying right away.
And you know what I’ve found helps me during those times? To say: “Angels, strengthen me and help me get up, in Jesus’ name!”
Whenever I say that, after a moment or two, I always feel a surge of strength flow into my body. Then, I am able to get up and go spend time with the Lord.
So how do you activate angels on your behalf?
You command angels by speaking God’s Word out over yourself and your situation. Angels heed the voice of God’s Word. Psalm 103:20 says:
I also believe, based on other Scripture verses and my personal experience practicing those verses, that angels will answer commands that are supported by God’s Word–even if they aren’t necessarily quotes from God’s Word.
Example #3 above is one such example. I know it’s God’s will for angels to minister to me because Psalm 104:4 says of God:
“Who makes His angels spirits, His ministers a flame of fire.”
So His angels are assigned to minister to you.
They also strengthened Jesus in the wilderness and in Gethsemane. Therefore, we know from the Bible that it’s Father’s will for angels to strengthen us. That’s why I don’t hesitate to command the angels both using quotes from God’s Word and using other commands that simply reflect God’s Word.
And to clarify: Yes, I do believe you can talk to the angels assigned to you.
We have no problem talking to demons, which are fallen angels. We tell them to leave in the name of Jesus, and they have to obey that name of Jesus. If we can talk to evil, fallen angels with our voices, why shouldn’t we be able to talk to God’s holy angels which He has sent and assigned to us, to help us?
Some people may disagree with me. That’s okay if they do. But, may I point out from the Bible:
- Lot talked to the angels who came to rescue him and his family from Sodom.
- Mary talked to the angel Gabriel, who brought her the news of her impending pregnancy.
- Zechariah talked to Gabriel when he brought the news of John the Baptist’s impending birth.
- And, angels talked directly to people over and over again throughout the pages of Scripture.
Does it really make sense to say that we cannot talk with the angels God sends us?
Does it make sense to say those people can talk with the angels they could see, but we cannot talk with the angels we cannot see–even though we know they are here?
Does it really make sense to say that angels are allowed to talk to people, but we are not allowed to speak back to them in conversation–even though the Bible characters did?
Does it really make sense, again, to know that we can speak to fallen, evil angels–but still to say we cannot speak to holy angels that surround us?
I think not. Of course we should NEVER worship angels. But, I think that the concept of talking with our guardian angels seems foreign because the enemy has stolen the truth of co-laboring with angels from God’s people.
Well, I aim to take it back. What about you? What will you do?
Have you activated the angels on your behalf yet?
If not, get busy doing so today! Don’t miss out on the ministry of angels in your life!

This week my first new born baby cries in the mid night …and I have been disturbing a lot what did happened to her I prayed a lot ,However,after i read your emails I prayed to God to send his angels to minister,assist my kids from her terrible situation.
Thank you God Bless you
If we can talk directly to God in Jesus’s name, why go through his angels?
Hi Jan! Great question. You shouldn’t go through God’s angels. Angels are not an intermediary between us and God … but this article never said they were. We are to co-labor with angels, and God sends them to bring messages to us when it pleases Him to do so. Angels also minister to us and watch over God’s Word to perform it. But we do not have to go through them to get to God.
Greetings. This is an area where I’m struggling to understand exactly what our authority is. No where in God’s Word do I see an example where any man or woman commanded God’s Holy angels to do anything. In Matthew 26:53 Jesus said He could have done so, but declined in order to fulfill God’s Word. Other than that, not even the apostles wielded the sort of authority that commanded angels. There are numerous examples of God’s people praying to God and then God would send angels in response, both in the Old Testament and the New Testament, but never does anyone in the scriptures command a Holy angel to do anything. Are we reading something into the Word of God that isn’t there? I am sincerely asking, especially in the light of teachers such as Kat Kerr. I just want to know the truth regarding this issue.
Hello David, I don’t know anything about Kat Kerr, but the Bible says that the angels move in response to God’s Word. When you speak the Word of God, you can command angels because the Word of God coming from your mouth carries just as much power and the same authority as the Word of God coming from God’s mouth. Hope this helps. Blessings! Jamie
It’s not about talking to God through His angels, but about directing His angels, the ministering beings Father has given us, to assist us in this life. There, actually, was nothing said about speaking to the angels instead of God….. They’re our helpers and can assist in guiding us when we ask…. And…btw….. Who do you think God sends when we ask for His help? Angels!! They’re a blessing!!
My thoughts exactly. Also, I would be skeptical about asking angels to work through me when that’s the Holy Spirit’s portion. I have to pray more in this because it just doesn’t sit right in my spirit.
I have always wanted a connection with the heavenly realm. Conversing in the spirit, much like communicate with the Angels and Holy Spirit. This message brings me some steps closer to my goal. Thank you
Dear Jamie. I’ve been trying my hardest to live my life the way that God wants me to. But every time I start praying and trying to get close to God everything in my life just seems to get worse. Why does God allow me to struggle so much? How do I get ahead? What does God want from me. I’m trying my best Jamie!!! How much does one person have to go through before God helps me?? What do I pray??
I would suggest staying focused on the Word during your time of waiting. Fasting and praying as Daniel did when he didn’t get his answer right away. Stay humble and trust that GOD is moving even when we don’t see Him. No one is exempt from struggles but Christ reassures us that He overcame the world. John 16:33. I pray that you will receive His peace in all that you encounter. Galatians 5:22
Thank you for sharing this because not all could grasp the idea that we can command our creator’s ministering and even warring angels. These angels are always in our midst to protect us. I for one had an experience with them when there was an instance my heart was in pain i immediately called and asked them to help me because i know i was being attack by our enemy and his minions, after that it took just seconds my pain disappear. So angels really could help and protect us wherever we may be.
Don’t give up. James 1:12 tells us God blesses those who patiently endures testing. Afterward they receive the crown of life. James 1:2-4 tells us that when your faith is tested your endurance has a chance to grow. Count your circumstances a blessings because God is working things out for your good. Cry out loud and expect from the Lord. Expect today and watch the Lord answer. Evelyn
Also remember that our children see angels. My youngest daughter, Joy, would see angels. I remembering her staring into the corner of our bedroom or certain areas of our house when she was very small with bright eyes of wonder. When she got older we would drive through the surrounding neighborhoods she would point out the houses that had angels. She is now 14 and just entered high school. With her concern of getting to and from school and my work schedule she needed to rely on her father to drive her on most days, but he kept having issues with his car so much that he was afraid to drive it, even though it was just in the shop it seemed to have the same problems. But he had already been speaking negative. She prayed over that car and it has been faithful ever since. I believe angels for my car and gave her many examples when I prayed in faith for the angels to help with safe travel. She was in the car with my friend and her daughter when We were on this exit to go west and a van cut in front of us because they wanted to go to north. I felt the angels take over as I whispered “Jesus”. I let go of the control of the brakes, gas pedal and steering wheel I watched in awe and wonder as the blue van, in slow motion, drove right passed our windshield. As soon as the van was safely past us I saw the real time motion of the car moving forward around the curve as I resumed control. Wow…all that I could do is quote scripture, “surely goodness and mercy shall follow us all the days of our lives.” I truly believe that this miracle was the goodness and mercy of God in sending His ministering angels on our behalf. Going back to the cars we’ve had in the past. We had one car that kept losing power and stopping, like it had some sort of short or something. We would have to let it sit until it decided to start up again. I always prayed over it. When that happened with my husband, as we only had the one car, he would cuss and swear. Well, every time he came to the place in the road where he spoke evil, the car would act again like it was going to fail. I could drive all around with no problem because of prayer and belief in angels. It would fail on me sometimes but I prayed and it would resume. Sometimes I think I have had more faith for our cars than for other issues. I will have to consider these angels in other areas of my life in connection with my prayers for myself and family. We are really needing the assistance of our angels in these end times. I also believe that when we pray God can send ministering angels to others. It is good to remember these things in relationship with God’s truth to expand our faith in all areas of our lives. I pray for those ministering angels over my family, whether they are serving God for themselves or not. They need a defining moment God experience. Amen.
I love this teaching!! I received more revelation while reading this!! I believe in angels helping and ministering to us. But it really jumped out when I read they act on God’s Word.. Very Powerful!!! Thank you!!
When I try to read an article from you I get this page that wants me to join your email list which I have however I can’t get past the page to read what you wrote. I am not an expert on this stuff so how can I get to the article. With out the sign me up page preventing me from the article? I have even tried some of my other email addresses. Paul [email protected] [email protected]
Hi Paul. I’m not sure what you mean. What are you clicking on? I’m assuming you were able to scroll down on this page since you left a comment? I will try to help but I’m not sure what you mean. I don’t have any pages blocked that require you to sign up for email in order to read. If you could tell me more about what’s happening, I’ll try to fix it. So sorry about that.
Hello Jamie, Thank you for your research in the scriptures and hard work. It helps to build my spiritual life. As you see I am a frequest visitor of your webpage. Thank you so much God bless you. Keep doing the goood work.
Thank you thank you I’m in tears as I reconnect with my guardian angels , I had done this and had got lost in the world and lost my focus and my realization how important this is and how much we need their help tu
I agree with this post as I have physically seen on numerous occasions angels of God surrounding me waiting to be told where to go to fight the battles that the Holy Spirit has ushered me into. I am actually sharing these stories of my heavenly encounters as the Lord has told me it is time to share all I have been shown all my life in warfare. So I was very excited to see other children of God sharing thier testimony of spiritual realm warfare♥️? God bless you and your blog!!!!
Hi Jamie I totally agree what you shared. I had an encounter with an angel years ago after a spiritual warfare session. I walked outside of my house and I noticed a person sitting on my rooftop in broad daylight and ask him, who are you and he said I am angel of the Lord sent from heaven. I truly do believe co- labouring with the heavenly hosts by knowing my true identity in Christ and having a very close intimate relationship with the Holy Spirit always. Amen
Hi Jamie, I loved the read. A good refresher on the Ministry of angels. Thank and I DECREE blessing on your ministry.
Sis Jamie, pray for me as I’m preparing for my hospital final examination tomorrow, that the Lord will send me help from above. He Will command His Angel and put them in charge of me
I was not feeling well when I came across your blog /websites. Before I fell ill, I had been researching and open my mind in studying and hopefully to be receptive to angelic presence. I had a book written by Roland buck from Boise, idaho. But I didn’t read it. This time, I brought in coz I want to read it to connect with angels despite I do not know how. I type angels in Google search . A brief search led me to you.
Hi Shawn, those angels love and serve God and He will send them to watch over you if you ask Him to! Jesus loves you so very much!
I believe we need help from angels in our warfare and ministry. Some say angels feel bored because His saints are not calling on them for help.
My husband of 34 years has relapsed back into drug use. The enemy has surrounded him with people that profess to being Believers but who are giving him wicked counsel to divorce me. There is no Biblical grounds for divorce and God says He hates divorce. I love my husband and have stood loyally by him all these years. I only want to see my husband turn back to God and be delivered from his addictions and whatever caused him to turn to drugs. Can angels help my family in this situation? How/what should I pray?? I know you are probably very busy but my 9 children and I are desperate for help.
Good morning, I find your article very interesting. My question is can we command angels in spiritual warfare? The reason why I’m asking because their was a pastor was calling on angles from another country to help with the election in our country. I was sure if this is possible. Many people have asked me can a command be possible, but I wasn’t sure on this subject.
Hi Jamie, Very Good teaching…I will put it to practice…Amen!
Great post! Thank you. May God bless your ministry in Jesus name.
Great post! Thank you. May God bless and increase your ministry in Jesus name.
I’ve had several people tell me that only God can command the angels. It’s amazing how many people don’t know about this powerful tool God has given us.
In addition to the verses you have here, I remind them that 1) Jesus was the example of what we should be and He said He could call down angels to defend Him; 2) He also said we would do greater works than He did; 3) death and life are in the power of the tongue (I include this one to emphasize that our words have power and when our words are the Word of God, so much more power). I give them the verses for each of these points.
I hope this article you’ve published here touches many people who need to know about this wonderful aid God provides for us. God bless you!
Hi Jamie, I am so thankful that the Lord is using you to teach these things. I have just been asked by my local church to assist with the prayer wing of the church and I felt this cannot be done alone. I was led to look into how I can partner with angels and that brought me here. This is very insightful. God bless you. Can angels be asked to manifest the presence of God among the congregation?
You can ask God to manifest His own presence. 🙂 And you can charge angels to minister the blessings from Heaven in Jesus’ name. Hope this helps.
Thanks for this words It’s what I believed but couldn’t find much on the topic. It’s given me even greater confidence. Be Blessed Rob
Thank-you ,so much , Jamie!
For the past few months I’ve had many encounters with angels. I’ve called them “restless angles” because they have let their presence be known at night pacing back & forth in front of the fan at the foot of my bed. Then one night last week, one came right in my face & I felt his presence as he blew across my face. Well, for all these months, I’ve wondered what they want. Today, I got the WORD that they’re waiting on MARCHING ORDERS! WHOA! So I started writing down what I believe the Lord is telling me to say to them! Your article has helped a lot with GOD’S WORD! Thank you!
Wow, Thank you Jamie for the insight from the Holy Spirit through you. I believe and God has led me to learn a lot on angels but did was a little bit uncomfortable to command angles. I believe they respond to God’s word but was not sure how i command them. This is helping, God is good. I pray the Holy Spirit to help me practice this.
Thanks for sharing the insight and experiences. It is really helpful. Great grace in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen!
Asking GODS Angels to help us fight evil works! Satan sends his fallen Angels to blind us in a way that keeps us from asking GOD and his Angels for help but you have revived our faith in many of us! I have been asking Angels for help and when I do they respond and give me a lift emotionally and helps me defeat evil thoughts, Thank you

Angels on Assignment
December 18, 2019
When I was in school, I often received assignments from my teachers. These assignments were not always met with enthusiasm and often I delayed their completion as long as possible. Angels also receive assignments and they come from God Himself. These assignments are not delayed, and are carried out as quickly as possible with military precision. Hebrews 1:14 says, “Therefore, angels are only servants—spirits sent to care for people who will inherit salvation.  In our story, an angel visits Mary to give her a message. But angels can minister to all people who will inherit salvation. Most of the time, angels are in the unseen realm carrying out their duties, but in Mary’s case, the angel Gabriel gave her a personal message.
26 In the sixth month of Elizabeth’s pregnancy, God sent the angel Gabriel to Nazareth, a village in Galilee, 27 to a virgin named Mary. She was engaged to be married to a man named Joseph, a descendant of King David. 28 Gabriel appeared to her and said, “Greetings, favored woman! The Lord is with you!” 29 Confused and disturbed, Mary tried to think what the angel could mean. 30 “Don’t be afraid, Mary,” the angel told her, “for you have found favor with God! 31 You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you will name him Jesus.  Luke 1:26-31
Of all the assignments the angel Gabriel received, telling Mary she was going to have a child who would be Jesus had to be a very special experience. No other angel before or after would ever receive such a wonderful assignment. Angels, in their glory, are awesome to behold and usually tell people not to be afraid.
What are some of the amazing assignments angels receive from God to help people of faith?
They protect: Psalm 34:7- For the angel of the Lord is a guard; he surrounds and defends all who fear him. 
They rescue: Acts 5:19-20 -But an angel of the Lord came at night, opened the gates of the jail, and brought them out. Then he told them, 20 “Go to the Temple and give the people this message of life!” 
They give guidance : Acts 8:26 -As for Philip, an angel of the Lord said to him, “Go south down the desert road that runs from Jerusalem to Gaza.” 
Take a moment and thank the Lord for angels who have been at work in your life along your journey of faith.
