Recently I had a vision of thousands of angels being dispensed across the world, with prayers in hand, bringing forth the fulfillment of what they held in their hand.
In the book of Daniel, a familiar verse is found in chapter 10:12-13.
Then he said to me, “Do not fear, Daniel, for from the first day that you set your heart to understand, and to humble yourself before your God, your words were heard; and I have come because of your words. But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me twenty-one days; and behold, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me, for I had been left alone there with the kings of Persia.
Daniel was living in a very dark time. Evil surrounded him on every side. Yet, he was a praying man and God heard his prayers. We see in this scripture, even with the magnitude of ungodliness surrounding him, God sent one angel. Only one.
One angel came to receive his words and brought them to pass.
James 5:16, in the Amplified Bible states, The earnest (heartfelt, continued) prayer of a righteous man makes tremendous power available [dynamic in its working].
The power from Daniel’s prayers manifested in the form of the angel, Gabriel.
If you search the Bible concerning angels, time and again you will see when God sent angelic hosts to assist or instruct, it was most often, just one.
• Now an angel of the Lord spoke to Philip, saying, “Arise and go toward the south along the road which goes down from Jerusalem to Gaza” (Acts 8:26).
• But they said to her, “You are beside yourself!” Yet she kept insisting that it was so. So, they said, “It is his angel” (Acts 12:15).
• Yes, while I was speaking in prayer, the man Gabriel, whom I had seen in the vision at the beginning, being caused to fly swiftly, reached me about the time of the evening offering (Daniel 9:21).
Psalm 34:7 says, The angel of the Lord encamps all around those who fear Him and delivers them.
This word, encamp, means to pitch a tent, to surround, to guard.
When we pray, God sends an angel to make camp wherever we are. As our prayers remain consistent and scripture based, that angel stays in place.
What I saw in a vision was literally thousands of angels being released into the earth. They are harkening to the prayers we are praying! They are, like Gabriel, coming for our words, to bring them to fulfillment.
The more people we have seeking the face of God, praying for our world, the more angels we will see at work.
Recently, many have felt discouraged and weary, but take heart. We are in the days of victory not defeat.
It is now just as it was in the days of Elisha.
In those days, there was a king in place, who tried to destroy the people of God. God would not allow it then and He won’t allow it now. We must see our present situation with new eyes from God’s perspective. To do that, we must ascend higher.
Therefore, he sent horses and chariots and a great army there, and they came by night and surrounded the city. And when the servant of the man of God arose early and went out, there was an army, surrounding the city with horses and chariots. And his servant said to him, “Alas, my master! What shall we do?” So, he answered, “Do not fear, for those who are with us are more than those who are with them.” And Elisha prayed, and said, “Lord, I pray, open his eyes that he may see.” Then the Lord opened the eyes of the young man, and he saw. And behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha (2 Kings 6:14-17).
It is no different today. We may not see it, but we are surrounded by warring angels. They have come for our words and God’s word, coming from our lips, will not fail.
My prayer for each of us today is this; “Lord, I pray, open our eyes, that we may see and that we may know there is more with us, than with them. Open our eyes to see victory on the horizon. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.”
