THEME: SIGNIFICANCE OF ANGELS
“If you say, “The Lord is my refuge, and you make the Most High your dwelling, no harm will overtake you, no disaster will come near your tent. For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways; they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.
-The Hebrew word for angel is malak which means messenger or envoy. Angels are spiritual beings that have different ranks, significance and functions. One of the functions is that, angels offer protection to God’s elect and minister to those who trust in the Lord. From the time of Moses, we see them perform these functions as instructed by God. Exodus 23:20 reveals that, “See, I am sending an angel ahead of you to guard you along the way and to bring you to the place I have prepared.” There are angels who are assigned to defend us and protect us from danger. From the beginning, we see that Archangel Michael led other angels in driving out Lucifer and other fallen angels from heaven when they rebelled against God (Revelation 12:7-9). Angels of war are therefore instrumental in our lives as they guide us to the place prepared for us before the foundations of the earth. God loves us so much that He sends His angels to guard, guide and protect us through various stages of our life. Although we may not immediately know or see that angels are around us, they are there at God’s direction and working to assist us in this live and the next.
Lord You are compassionate and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in love and faithfulness, we adore You are glorify Your holy name. Only You are Holy, only You are Good and deserve to be glorified and praised. May You wash us and cleanse us from all unrighteousness we humbly beseech You merciful Savior. You are our Salvation and Shield, our Refuge and Strength, Our Lord and Savior. We adore You and praise Your holy name. Thank you for sending Your angels to protect us and govern us from harm even as we sleep at night. May You always deploy Your angels to guard us in all our ways and lift us up in their hands, lest we strike our feet against a stone. Thank You Jesus for loving us and for taking good care of us. We count our blessings and name them one by one. Guide us dear Jesus in all that we do for the glory of Your name. Lead us according to Your divine purposes this entire week for the glory and honor of Your name. We pray for all those who are sick in hospital and at home that You may heal them and restore them. We pray for those who are lost that You may restore them back to Yourself our loving Savior. We pray for all the street children that Your hand of mercy may reunite them with their parents, guardians and everyone else that You have appointed. We pray for our nation Kenya, that Your will may done in this beautiful nation. We pray for the new prime minister of Israel that You may grant him wisdom as he leads the people of Israel. May Your peace always be found in this nation, our nation and all the nations of the world. All glory, honor, power and praise belongs to You Jesus, now and forever. Amen
