Last night I fell into a deep sleep and had a dream.
As I awakened and was pondering the dream, the Lord spoke a name to me of someone I know. He spoke his name four times. There was such an urgency in my spirit from that name spoken to my heart, and the context of the dream, that I immediately began to pray. I felt the intensity so strongly, that I then called on a friend from my church to join in agreement. There is more power in agreement, and even though it was after midnight and I knew she would be asleep–
I felt a strong necessity in my heart to PRAY RIGHT NOW!
I am so happy she was willing and heard the call for help because, as we prayed, an anointing came on our prayer. It came just as she was speaking, and I urged her to continue. Within minutes, the Angels arrived. I could not see them, but my dog jumped up on the couch; looking behind the couch, which is open-backed to a hallway, he let out a fierce growl. It was the same growl he gave when the Angel came a few days ago and touched my shoulders. I have only heard this growl from him three times and each time it preceded an Angel. This time the Angel touched me on my arm. I knew in my spirit that he was directing me to send them on assignment. So I commissioned them to go to the couple we were praying for, to minister to them on behalf of our prayers.
They immediately left, and we continued to pray.
In what seemed like a very short time, they returned. Again my dog alerted with the fierce growl, which they must silence, for each time he only gets out one quick growl; and then he stops and doesn’t bark, whine, growl further or even move a muscle but his eyes never leave that spot! I heard three times the statement, “It is finished.” We began rejoicing, praising God and thanking the Angels for their ministry.
Authors Note: I have since searched the Bible for scripture to back up this “Commissioning the Angels” and find nothing written of man commanding the Angels. I stand corrected. This is all very new to me and I am learning. I do know that they (the Angels) were there and that one touched my arm; and when I said to go to that couple, they went and returned a short time later. According to the Word, they had been directed from the Lord; who I expect sent the Angels to begin with, as He hears our prayers. I am grateful that the Lord answers prayer in spite of my lack of understanding all things. I hope you all have patience with me, as this is new ground for me. I ask for forgiveness in misrepresenting the truth; it was not intentional, but lack of knowledge on my part. Though it would be much easier to save face and wipe out what I wrote, I have chosen to leave it as I wrote it, learning from my mistake; and enabling others to glean from my mistake as well. You are more important to me than hiding my embarrassment and the Lord knows my heart.
I didn’t know I had that kind of adrenaline left in me.
It was exhilarating and wonderful to know that we can partner with the Angels of God, participating in warfare, for our brothers and sisters in Christ. I praise God for His unending Faithfulness to His children!
I remember a time, many years ago, when I had a fellowship group that met in my home. We were worshiping, and I felt an unction to stop immediately and pray for the son of a woman present in the group. We obeyed and she later found out that he had been, AT THAT MOMENT, rock climbing and had lost his footing. He was hanging precariously off the side of a cliff . . .
I expect the Angels helped him to safety.
She reported back to us, and praised God for her son being safe; an incident that we knew nothing about, but participated in because God knew and we obeyed.
We have legions of Angels at our disposal, waiting to act on our behalf; when we are acting in agreement with the Lord and His Word. Just think of the impact the Body of Christ could have in this world if we all find our place; and take prayer to a higher level–in communion with the very heart and agenda of God!
I urge you to seek Him for your place in the Kingdom here on earth.
There is much to be done and everyone has a part!
“But to which of the angels said he at any time, sit on my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool? Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?” Hebrews 1:13-14 KJV
“Do you think that I cannot appeal to my Father, and he will at once send me more than twelve legions of angels?” Matthew 26:53
“Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes in me will also do the works that I do; and greater works than these will he do, because I go to the Father. Whatever you ask in my name, I will do it, that the Father may be glorified in the Son; if you ask anything in my name, I will do it.” John 14:12-14

Listen to His Voice, as He speaks messages to you to affirm, heal, deliver and deepen your relationship IN HIM.
Also Available from Nation of Women Publishing–
“Comfort in the Challenge”
A timely book for this troubling season!
Notice the title. This book was written in dedication to care-givers; created and printed in 2019 before anyone had ever heard of Covid 19. I had a different title planned for the book, but the publisher rejected my title and suggested this title, that the Lord had spoken to her. We didn’t know what was coming, but He did! This book wasn’t written to sensationalize a current event. It was spoken by God in provision for a time to come and that time is now!
