All Kinds of Prayers & Requests

Ephesians 6 v 18 pray in the Spirit

I prayed something last night that I don’t think I have ever prayed.  I was brushing my teeth before bed around 10:30 p.m. and the Spirit came over me and I was filled up with prayer and started praying.  I was praying for protection over my wife and kids for the night’s sleep.  I asked God to command His angels to protect us and asked that they would sit on the roof all night and be stationed at their posts as long as we needed them.  Then I started praying for our angels!

I asked God to encourage them and strengthen them and that they would be faithful in protecting us.  I asked God to give them a new song in their hearts and prayed that there would be “a new song in Heaven tonight.”  It was one of the coolest prayer times I have ever had!  I have always prayed for angelic protection, but I don’t think I have ever thought of actually praying for our angels!

We can pray about absolutely anything and God hears us!  Did you know that?  Yes, the Bible says to pray on all occasions about everything.

“And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests.  With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints.”

Ephesians 6:18

That is so cool!  When the Holy Spirit fills us up and we sense an urgency to pray, then pray, and pray about whatever it is the Spirit wants you to pray about!  It doesn’t matter if you are driving down the road or you are at home in your quiet place.  You can always pray and nobody can ever take that from you!  You could be in the darkest prison like the Apostles Paul and John, but you can still pray!

“In him and through faith in him we may approach God with freedom and confidence.

Ephesians 3:12

Did you know that?  Through Jesus Christ we can approach God freely with confidence knowing that He will receive us and listen to us!  You can pray to God about anything and everything that is on your heart and mind!  Folks, that is exciting!

I just prayed for my angels last night, and I didn’t even know I could do that!  I love the Lord!  After almost 22 years following Him, He is still showing me new and wonderful things!  Thank you Jesus!

Remember that today!  God loves you!  Lift up your heart to Him today!  You can pray about anything when you know Jesus and He will receive you in love and listen to you!

“Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.”

1 Peter 5:7

Grace and peace to you!


I wonder how encouraged and excited our family’s angels were last night when God answered my prayers for them!  Amen!  Yes, they are real!  I encountered my angel that protects me two different times back in 1998!  They are huge, strong, and very beautiful–and they most definitely minister to those who believe in Jesus Christ!

“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.”

Psalm 91:11

“Are not all angels ministering spirits sent to serve those who will inherit salvation?”

Hebrews 1:14

  1. Ryan — I especially liked the example you mentioned of feeling God’s nudge to prayer even while brushing your teeth! Paul reminds us to “pray without ceasing,” which means “being in the attitude of prayer regardless of when or where we are or what we’re doing.” Prayer needn’t be an activity squirreled away in our prayer closets at certain times of the day. Blessings!
