So when prayer and GOD'S WORD Meet
Something very powerful happens
11 One day Jesus was praying in a certain place. When he finished, one of his disciples said to him, “Lord, teach us to pray, just as John taught his disciples.”
2He said to them, “When you pray, say:
hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come.
3Give us each day our daily bread.
4Forgive us our sins,
for we also forgive everyone who sins against us.
And lead us not into temptation.
9 “So I say to you: Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. 10 For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.
11 “Which of you fathers, if your son asks for a fish, will give him a snake instead? 12 Or if he asks for an egg, will give him a scorpion? 13 If you then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!”
10 At this I fell at his feet to worship him. But he said to me, “Don’t do that! I am a fellow servant with you and with your brothers and sisters who hold to the testimony of Jesus. Worship God! For it is the Spirit of prophecy who bears testimony to Jesus.”
9 Then I looked up—and there before me were two women, with the wind in their wings! They had wings like those of a stork, and they lifted up the basket between heaven and earth
“At that time Michael, the great prince who protects your people, will arise. There will be a time of distress such as has not happened from the beginning of nations until then. But at that time your people—everyone whose name is found written in the book—will be delivered.
11 For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways;
13 But the prince of the Persian kingdom resisted me twenty-one days. Then Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me, because I was detained there with the king of Persia
Thinkest thou that I cannot now pray to my Father, and he shall presently give me more than twelve legions of angels?.
To give a message from God
– There are many examples in the Bible of when God sends an angel to give a specific message to an individual or people. In Genesis 18, God sent three men, messengers, to Abraham and Sarah to tell them that she would bear a son. He sent an angel to Sarah’s servant Hagar in the desert, as she fled in Genesis 16, to give hope that she was not forgotten.
He sent an angel to the discouraged Gideon in Judges 6, who greeted him with the words, “The Lord is with you, mighty warrior.”
He sent the angel Gabriel to Mary, in Luke 1, to tell that she would give birth to the very Son of God. The angel Gabriel came to Zechariah to tell of the news that Elizabeth would bear a son in Luke 1. God sent an angel messenger to the shepherds in Luke 2 to tell them of Jesus’ birth. In Matthew 28, an angel appeared at the tomb of Christ to announce that Jesus rose
To protect us
– Many times God sends angels to protect, guard, and fight for us. God tells us in Psalm 91 that He would give angels charge concerning us to guard us in all our ways.
God sent an angel to Daniel in the lion’s den. Daniel 6:22 says that he shut the mouth of the lions so that no harm came to him who was found blameless before God.
God reminded the Israelites of his presence with them in Exodus 23:20 when he said, “I am sending an angel ahead of you to guard you along the way and to bring you to the place I have prepared.”
Psalm 34:7 reminds us, “The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear him, and delivers them.”
In 2 Kings 6:17, Elisha prayed that his servant would see the armies of angels surrounding the city. God opened his eyes and he realized he had overlooked these mighty invisible beings.
God’s word tells of his special care over children, “See that you do not despise one of these little ones. For I tell you that in heaven their angels always see the face of my Father...” (Matthew 18:10)
To serve believers
– God sends angels to minister to those who hurt or need strength.
When Elijah was afraid and running for his life in 1 Kings 19, an angel appeared to him and provided food and water for his journey.
In the Garden of Gethsemane, as Jesus prayed and wrestled with what was to come, Luke 22:43 tells us that an angel appeared from heaven, “strengthening him.”
After Jesus spent 40 days in the wilderness and stood strong against the temptations of the devil, Matthew 4:11 says, “Then the devil left him, and behold, angels, came and were ministering to him.”
So this is my question...In stead of reading Bible Prophesy is it possible to start a movement Biblical Based to turn the tide?
