God Desires to Answer the Prayers of the Saints




Each Wednesday at 9:00 am prayer meeting, Pastor Allan has asked me to give a short teaching.  I noted that at times our faith fails and God answers prayer even when we do not believe !!!

Peter had been cast into prison by the authorities, because he refused to stop preaching about Jesus. 

The church prayed long into the night that God would release Peter from jail. 

Peter was not worried, because he was fast asleep - - when all of a sudden, an angel of “Deliverance,” woke him up, touched his chains that fell to the ground, and said, “Let’s get out of here.”  Peter thought he was dreaming, but it sounded good to him, so he gathered his coat and walked out of the unlocked prison gate with the angel. 

Know that your prayers and positive declarations over your city, your family and Nation are powerful to unlock prison gates, and to cause the chains that hold people in bondage, to drop to the ground. 

The angel of “Deliverance,” led Peter to the main street and disappeared.  Peter then knew this was real. 

Our prayers are powerful and will work real Spiritual manifestations as we believe.  We will see mountains of evil removed, bondage broken and deliverance to flow.
2 Corinthians 10:4-5, "For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God."
Although the Bible only mentions the names of 3 angels, there are angels sent to fight and work with us and often they are an angel of deliverance, an angel of protection, a messenger angel, an angel of encouragement, and even an angel of healing.  (Remember the angel that stirred the pool of Bethesda, so people could be healed.) 

God send an angel to shut the lion’s mouths and Daniel was not harmed in the lion pit. 

Paul was encouraged by an angel and said in Acts 27:23 - - I know this because an angel from the God to whom I belong and whom I serve stood by me last night. 

Peter realized he was free, so he decided to go where his friends were praying.  He knocked on the door.  Rhoda came to the door and peered out but did not open the door.  Instead she ran into the prayer room and declared, “It is Peter at the door.”  The believers or should I say unbelievers hushed her up and said, this cannot be so.  She urged them to come and see.  Yes, it was Peter indeed and he told the amazing story of the angel of Deliverance setting him free. 

We do NOT pray to angels, but God does send angels to answer our prayers.  In this case God heard the people pray – He sent an angel to deliver Peter and answer their prayers.  

There is a heavenly host working with us as we pray earnestly that our city, our family and our Nation be set free from evil spirits and administrations of Satan. 
 
We wrestle not against flesh and blood but against principalities in high places.
 
Continue to make your positive Declarations and Prophesies over your city, your family and our Nation.  
 
Do not fear – and be quick to believe that your prayers matter. 

God is listening and He is working in the heavens to accomplish the answer to your prayers.
