The prayers of me and my husband once moved God to send an angel to our son. It was at a time when the attack of the enemy had been fierce, and discouragement had seized our son, Tommy, and his wife, Jeannie, in Lafayette, La., where they pastored. Without telling them, my husband and I interceded in prayer for them and asked God to send them a ministering angel.

The next day Tommy called. There was a hush in his voice. "Mom," he quietly said, "something very special happened to Jeannie and me last night. God sent an angel to us."

Angels know the address for our prayers.

Prayer is our line of communication into the unseen world of God and angels, far beyond the bubble of our earthly existence. It is the believer's daily privilege to go boldly into the throne room of God where angels dwell and, through our prayers, to seek help and make our petitions and requests known (Heb. 4:16).

When we enter into the throne room of heaven on the wings of prayer and speak the words, "Our Father," heaven pays attention because we are God's children. When we find ourselves in weakness or in need, a heartfelt cry of "Father!" will give us instant access to God and can send the angels scurrying, for they have been given orders to keep us in all our ways (Ps. 91:11). In the garden, with great distress of soul and perhaps a wail, Jesus uttered, "Father," and an angel from heaven appeared to Him and strengthened Him (Luke 22:42-43).

Incidents of angelic leading, guidance, deliverance, provision and protection are numerous in the Scriptures. It would be surprising, I am sure, if all the events in the Bible were unfolded for us to see openly the corresponding activities of the spirit world. Could it be that whatever God does in the spirit world He does with the assistance of angels, just as whatever He does in our world He does with the assistance of men?

Two worlds—dramatically different, inexplicably intertwined. God rules in both. The connecting link is prayer, an expression from our limitations to the unlimited resources in God, which includes the ministry of an innumerable host of angels—ministers to the heirs of salvation.

Angels have been involved with God and His purposes since the dawn of creation.
