In this politically correct world certain words have been phased out, too ignorant and harsh for this generation to hear. One of these banished words is pig-headed, meaning stubborn. Unfortunately, I tend to bang my head against the door hoping for a different outcome like a starving pig, doing whatever it takes to pick up the last scrap of food. Perhaps, I need to take a new approach, shifting my focus toward prayer with the hope that an angel is awaiting on a prayer to act.
But during the night an angel of the Lord opened the doors of the jail and brought them out, Acts 5:19.
Throughout the Bible, angels magically appear after someone prayers. Whenever an apostle was arrested or imprisoned, the local church began to pray. While not every prayer resulted in a miracle, angels rescued Peter from jail twice. Though a scientist may dispute this theory, unable to directly link angels to prayer, its not that far fetched to consider that angels are waiting for specific instructions in the form of prayers.
For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways, Psalm 91:11.
According to author of Psalm 91, God created angels to guard and protect individuals. This invisible force isn’t something people should experience once in a life time. Rather, the Psalmist suggests angels are meant to guide you in all your ways on earth. Therefore, the more believers in the supernatural begin to offer up requests, angels waiting for a prayer can respond immediately like the accounts in the Bible. If you’re like me, disappointed by your current state in life, then maybe you’re a prayer away from ushering angels into action.
