As I was pondering on our journey with the angelic realm, I’ve come to realise how many people perceive that angelic visitations or interactions are reserved for other ‘special People’, those with greater faith, or special events or circumstances that warrant it. That couldn’t be further from the truth. Yes, angels are attracted to faith, they most certainly are attracted to the word of God, but first and foremost, they are completely and utterly attracted to Jesus, who is the living embodiment of the Word.
Jesus, who lives inside of you, He is the ultimate attraction. The angelic realm moves up from within Him to the heavens, and down again, He is the angelic highway & activator.
John 1:51 NLT
Then he said, “I tell you the truth, you will all see heaven open and the angels of God going up and down on the Son of Man, the one who is the stairway between heaven and earth.”
You are the temple, if God’s Focus Is On You, I can most assuredly confirm the angels Focus would be on you. As The Temple of the Holy Spirit, the glory of the Lord centred in your innermost being, just like the cherubim arcing over the Ark of the Covenant, so the angels are arcing over you. Their gaze is upon you. Your Guardian Angel was assigned to you on the day of your creation, Your Guardian Angel will be with you forever, and by forever I mean into eternity. The relationship you have with him here on earth, is the relationship you take further in the heavens.
As mentioned last week, we will be focusing on how the angelic realm aids and plays a key role in your prayer life, how you engage them and activate their mandates around your prayers.
Remember, Angels form part of the Kingdom and are therefore part of our inheritance. They are there to partner with us to fulfil Kingdom mandates and to release from the spiritual into the physical. Let me say again, they help us release from the supernatural realm into the physical realm. I firmly believe part of the reason we are experiencing unsuccessful prayers or unanswered prayers, is due to our inability to harness the resources and abilities we have with the angelic realm.
Activating angelic activity in your prayer life.
So let’s just cover the obvious ones, they form the foundation.
Angels are attracted to the Word of God, and they respond to his word so use scripture Psalm 103:19–22 NKJVLord has established His throne in heaven, And His kingdom rules over all. Bless the Lord, you His angels, Who excel in strength, who do His word, heeding the voice of His word. Bless the Lord, all you His hosts, You ministers of His, who do His pleasure. Bless the Lord, all His works, In all places of His dominion. Bless the Lord, O my soul!
Angels are drawn to the presence of God, so Christ in you is the principal attraction, He takes the limelight.
Prayer in general attracts angels because they are also focused on assignments, and Scrolls are released through prayerBeing obedient and led by the Holy Spirit is an automatic attraction of the angelic realm.
The above are fundamentals for angelic interaction, make sure that they are an active part of your life
Learn the voice of your angel
Yes, you can hear or sense the promptings from your angel. They do communicate with you. Take a look at the scripture in Joshua:
Now it came about when Joshua was by Jericho, that he lifted up his eyes and looked, and behold, a man was standing opposite him with his sword drawn in his hand, and Joshua went to him and said to him, “Are you for us or for our adversaries?” He said, “No; rather I indeed come now as captain of the host of the LORD.” … Joshua said to him, “What has my lord to say to his servant?”
Joshua sensed that he was an angel, he approached him first, and spoke to him first, and then the angel responded.
I heard someone once said that angelic interactions were more so in the Old Testament cuz, they didn’t have the Holy Spirit like we do now. There may be an element of acceptability to that reasoning, but the Holy Spirit still stays God, He was not downgraded to become our servants. Angels remain servants and they have Kingdom mandates to fulfil.
Speaking to your angel is the same as speaking to anyone else, it triggers a two-way relationship, it activates response. When angels get recognition, it stirs up an excitement in them wanting to participate in whatever we are doing.
I’ve learnt that speaking to my angel, hearing or sensing his voice is different from my relationship with Jesus. There is an intimacy and oness that we have with the Holy Spirit that is not the same with the angelic realm. For me my relationship with the angel and the voice I hear or sense, appear more in the realm of friendship and servanthood, than the intimacy I have with the Holy Spirit. They sound different, they respond different, and they dare not take up the position occupied by the Holy Spirit . They do not approach any position or opportunity to be worshipped, they completely and utterly fear the Lord.
When you pray:
Give your angel an assignment.
Don’t be afraid to make mistakes, that’s how you learn. As you go deeper with regard to the angelic realm, you will start to learn the different functions of angels and their responsibilities. You engage their mandates to release assignments. Giving an angel an assignment is activating their purpose. They are eager to work with you.
Structure an angelic canopy over what your prayer focus.
So, for instance, when I pray for my children, I speak to their guardian angels to facilitate the mandate of protection they’ve been given, and to protect them wherever they are going, especially if there is something specific my children will be doing. Remember, you are not praying to the angels, you are activating their assignments. When I pray for the church, I also speak to the Angel of the church to facilitate the mandate the Father has given for this mornings service, I would also ask him if there is anything particularly I should know of. Something I love to do, is to commission the Angel of the church to release the worshipping angels into the building and start releasing a spirit of worship, opening gateways of encountering intimacy with Jesus. They release the frequency of the throne room in our midst, they prepare the atmospheres.So think about your workplace, release the angels into the environment to start preparing and facilitating god encounters. If you have an important meeting the next day or even later in the week, commission angels to go ahead to start preparing the atmosphere for your mandate to be fulfilled.
Here’s an example of activating a specific Angelic Realm mandate :
Joshua 24:11–13 NIV ‘
Then you crossed the Jordan and came to Jericho. The citizens of Jericho fought against you, as did also the Amorites, Perizzites, Canaanites, Hittites, Girgashites, Hivites and Jebusites, but I gave them into your hands. I sent the hornet ahead of you, which drove them out before you—also the two Amorite kings. You did not do it with your own sword and bow. So I gave you a land on which you did not toil and cities you did not build; and you live in them and eat from vineyards and olive groves that you did not plant.’
Yep, if you never knew, there is something like hornet angels. I love engaging the hornet angels when I am praying into situations where I need breakthrough and confusion in the ranks of the enemy. They establish ways and enable you to relish in the enemies spoils, they fight on your behalf, though it seems more like they terrorize the enemy into the four corners of the world LOL.

I sincerely hope this blog helped with activating angelic activity in your prayer life, and most of all, may it catapult your intimacy with Jesus into new depths and revelation
