There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling. For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in ALL thy ways. They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone – Psalms 91:10-12
In the days of Abraham, the Bible tells us how, in the city of Sodom, the people were wicked and indulged in all kinds of evil practices. God, seeing the wickedness in Sodom, sent two angels to destroy the city: “And there came two angels to Sodom at even; and Lot sat in the gate of Sodom: and Lot seeing them rose up to meet them; and he bowed himself with his face toward the ground” (Genesis 19:1).
Do you realize that as Christians, we can invite angels through our prayers, and have them patrol our streets and cities as they did in Bible days? We can pray and stall the efforts and actions of wicked men in different cities and nations. Yes, we can.
The Bible says, “Are they (angels) not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister FOR them who shall be heirs of salvation (Christians)?” (Hebrews 1:14). Through angelic activities, initiated by our prayers, we can ensure that the perpetrators of evil and confusion are delivered into the hands of the law and decisive actions are taken against them. We must refuse to act as victims, and not sit idly by when Satan and his cohorts are on the rampage in towns, cities, and villages around the world. We can thwart their efforts.
Imagine that pandemonium breaks out in your neighbourhood and people are scampering for their lives as a result of an onslaught or a drive-by shooting. Are you going to be running like everyone else, with the presence of the Holy Spirit in your life? There’s a better way to all of these; it’s prayer. It’s about time we prayed correctly as Christians, to wield our authority in Christ, invoking angelic ministration in our cities and nations. God is counting on us for this, and we must act.

Dear heavenly Father, I thank you for always causing us to triumph in Christ and make manifest the savour of His knowledge and glory in every place. By the power of the Holy Spirit, I’ll put the Word to work in prayer and frustrate the activities of Satan in my city and nation. Thank you, Lord, for this revelation in the Word, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
