You Can Command Angels to Help You!

Next LIVE webinar: Healing from the Trauma of Adultery|April 17, 2024

Did you know that you can command angels to help you and minister to you? It’s true! The Bible says that angels are assigned the task of helping you and ministering to you.

To understand how this works, first know what the Bible says about angels. Here are a few key passages:

Psalm 91:11-12 says that God gives His angels charge over you, to keep you and protect you. This Scripture passage says:

For He shall give His angels charge over you, to keep you in all your ways. In their hands they shall bear you up, lest you dash your foot against a stone.”

So angels are assigned to help you. We see this again in Psalm 104:4, which says of God:

Who makes His angels spirits, His ministers a flame of fire.”

So we know from that verse that His angels are spirits and ministers. We also know that angels heed the voice of God’s Word. Psalm 103:20 says:

Bless the Lord, you His angels, who excel in strength, who do His word, heeding the voice of His word.”

So, to recap: God has assigned angels to you. Their job is to keep you in all your ways and protect you. They literally bear you up in their hands. They are ministers, ministering to you, and they heed the voice of God’s Word.

To activate the ministry of angels and even command angels in your life, we also have to understand three things:

1. That angels heed the voice of God’s Word. This means that they move and work in response to God’s Word.

2. We ALSO have to understand that God’s Word is not hidden from us. It’s not something we have to wonder about. We have God’s Word in written format. It’s called the Bible, and it’s the inerrant, infallible Word of God.

3. Finally, we have to understand that God’s Word in your mouth is just as powerful as God’s Word in God’s mouth.

God’s Word is a living thing. Jesus said, “The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life” (John 6:63). And because God’s Word is a living thing, it carries the same power whether it comes out of God’s mouth or whether it’s repeated out of your mouth.

When we speak God’s Word–when we use God’s Word as the weapon that it is (Ephesians 6:17)–we can command angels, because they heed the voice of God’s Word.

That’s why I charge angels to help me–because God’s Word says they should (Psalm 91).

That’s why I charge angels to keep me and my family safe–because God’s Word says we have a right to safety. And that’s why it’s of UTMOST importance to hide God’s Word in your heart, that we might not sin against Him (Psalm 119:11).

If you don’t know what God’s Word says, then you can’t command angels to carry out God’s commands based on that Word. But if you have God’s Word in your heart, then:

1) you won’t sin against the Lord, and
2) you’ll have God’s own vocabulary already in your heart so you can put those angels to work on your behalf.

That’s why I never hesitate to command angels to help me …

… because I have God’s Word in my heart; and whether I’m quoting God’s Word verbatim or putting His Word into a sentence, I am still speaking God’s own commands to those angels. Also, that’s why those angels respond: because they heed the voice of God’s Word.

I’ve personally seen God send angels to help me in soooo many ways.

It would be impossible to describe them all. But here are a few examples:

Example 1:

I used to play different instruments in my former church’s orchestra (sometimes viola, sometimes percussion, sometimes a mallet instrument). Whenever I would go to play, I’d often be nervous because I didn’t want to mess things up! So I would always ask the Lord to send angels to help me play, and to actually play through me.

Whenever I prayed that prayer, I could always sense the answer. When I went to play, I could actually feel that my hands were being guided by the unseen hands of God’s angels … and the music worked out well every time!

Example 2:

Almost every day, I speak out a verbal command to the angels to perform God’s will in my life.

This is what I say when I command angels to work out God’s will:

“Angels of God, I charge you in Jesus’ name to watch over my husband and I, our family and loved ones, and the houses, cars, tenants, pets, and items God has blessed us with. Keep us safe from all harm, danger, mal-intent, and loss. Minister to us the blessings from the Lord in Jesus’ name, and do everything through us and for us today that needs to be done, according to Father’s will, in Jesus’ name.”

I said I do this “almost every day” because some days I forget. But you know what? Every day I remember, I can tell a noticeable difference in how my day goes and how much heavenly assistance I sense in my life.

And every day I forget, I notice later that I didn’t sense anywhere near the same level of assistance.

Example 3 of commanding angels to help you:

Some days, the Lord wakes me up earlier than usual and I can sense Him calling me to go into my study and pray. Sometimes, though, when this happens, I feel so tired that–although my spirit wants to obey–my body just does NOT want to obey at all.

So I lay there, trying to work up the courage to get up. Then I get all convicted because I’m disobeying the Lord by not obeying right away.

And you know what I’ve found helps me during those times? To say: “Angels, strengthen me and help me get up, in Jesus’ name!”

Whenever I say that, after a moment or two, I always feel a surge of strength flow into my body. Then, I am able to get up and go spend time with the Lord.

So how do you activate angels on your behalf?

You command angels by speaking God’s Word out over yourself and your situation. Angels heed the voice of God’s Word. Psalm 103:20 says:

Bless the Lord, you His angels, who excel in strength, who do His word, heeding the voice of His word.”

I also believe, based on other Scripture verses and my personal experience practicing those verses, that angels will answer commands that are supported by God’s Word–even if they aren’t necessarily quotes from God’s Word.

Example #3 above is one such example. I know it’s God’s will for angels to minister to me because Psalm 104:4 says of God:

“Who makes His angels spirits, His ministers a flame of fire.”

So His angels are assigned to minister to you.

[mv_video doNotAutoplayNorOptimizePlacement=”false” doNotOptimizePlacement=”false” jsonLd=”true” key=”rcm0bnjvextnyyqjrz8c” ratio=”16:9″ thumbnail=”” title=”Prayer for An Angel with a Flaming Sword” volume=”70″] They also strengthened Jesus in the wilderness and in Gethsemane. Therefore, we know from the Bible that it’s Father’s will for angels to strengthen us. That’s why I don’t hesitate to command the angels both using quotes from God’s Word and using other commands that simply reflect God’s Word.

And to clarify: Yes, I do believe you can talk to the angels assigned to you.

We have no problem talking to demons, which are fallen angels. We tell them to leave in the name of Jesus, and they have to obey that name of Jesus. If we can talk to evil, fallen angels with our voices, why shouldn’t we be able to talk to God’s holy angels which He has sent and assigned to us, to help us?

Some people may disagree with me. That’s okay if they do. But, may I point out from the Bible:

  • Lot talked to the angels who came to rescue him and his family from Sodom.
  • Mary talked to the angel Gabriel, who brought her the news of her impending pregnancy.
  • Zechariah talked to Gabriel when he brought the news of John the Baptist’s impending birth.
  • And, angels talked directly to people over and over again throughout the pages of Scripture.

Does it really make sense to say that we cannot talk with the angels God sends us?

Does it make sense to say those people can talk with the angels they could see, but we cannot talk with the angels we cannot see–even though we know they are here?

Does it really make sense to say that angels are allowed to talk to people, but we are not allowed to speak back to them in conversation–even though the Bible characters did?

Does it really make sense, again, to know that we can speak to fallen, evil angels–but still to say we cannot speak to holy angels that surround us?

I think not. Of course we should NEVER worship angels. But, I think that the concept of talking with our guardian angels seems foreign because the enemy has stolen the truth of co-laboring with angels from God’s people.

Well, I aim to take it back. What about you? What will you do?

Have you activated the angels on your behalf yet?

If not, get busy doing so today! Don’t miss out on the ministry of angels in your life!

  1. Thank you Jamie

    This week my first new born baby cries in the mid night …and I have been disturbing a lot what did happened to her I prayed a lot ,However,after i read your emails I prayed to God to send his angels to minister,assist my kids from her terrible situation.

    Thank you
    God Bless you

  2. If we can talk directly to God in Jesus’s name, why go through his angels?

    1. Jamie Rohrbaugh says:

      Hi Jan! Great question. You shouldn’t go through God’s angels. Angels are not an intermediary between us and God … but this article never said they were. We are to co-labor with angels, and God sends them to bring messages to us when it pleases Him to do so. Angels also minister to us and watch over God’s Word to perform it. But we do not have to go through them to get to God.

      1. Greetings. This is an area where I’m struggling to understand exactly what our authority is. No where in God’s Word do I see an example where any man or woman commanded God’s Holy angels to do anything. In Matthew 26:53 Jesus said He could have done so, but declined in order to fulfill God’s Word. Other than that, not even the apostles wielded the sort of authority that commanded angels. There are numerous examples of God’s people praying to God and then God would send angels in response, both in the Old Testament and the New Testament, but never does anyone in the scriptures command a Holy angel to do anything. Are we reading something into the Word of God that isn’t there? I am sincerely asking, especially in the light of teachers such as Kat Kerr. I just want to know the truth regarding this issue.

        1. Hello David,
          I don’t know anything about Kat Kerr, but the Bible says that the angels move in response to God’s Word. When you speak the Word of God, you can command angels because the Word of God coming from your mouth carries just as much power and the same authority as the Word of God coming from God’s mouth. Hope this helps. Blessings!

    2. It’s not about talking to God through His angels, but about directing His angels, the ministering beings Father has given us, to assist us in this life. There, actually, was nothing said about speaking to the angels instead of God….. They’re our helpers and can assist in guiding us when we ask…. And…btw….. Who do you think God sends when we ask for His help? Angels!! They’re a blessing!!

    3. Jacqueline says:

      My thoughts exactly. Also, I would be skeptical about asking angels to work through me when that’s the Holy Spirit’s portion. I have to pray more in this because it just doesn’t sit right in my spirit.

    4. Olajide Victor says:

      I have always wanted a connection with the heavenly realm. Conversing in the spirit, much like communicate with the Angels and Holy Spirit. This message brings me some steps closer to my goal.
      Thank you

  3. Dear Jamie. I’ve been trying my hardest to live my life the way that God wants me to. But every time I start praying and trying to get close to God everything in my life just seems to get worse. Why does God allow me to struggle so much? How do I get ahead? What does God want from me. I’m trying my best Jamie!!! How much does one person have to go through before God helps me?? What do I pray??

    1. I would suggest staying focused on the Word during your time of waiting. Fasting and praying as Daniel did when he didn’t get his answer right away. Stay humble and trust that GOD is moving even when we don’t see Him. No one is exempt from struggles but Christ reassures us that He overcame the world. John 16:33. I pray that you will receive His peace in all that you encounter. Galatians 5:22

    2. Margarita says:

      Thank you for sharing this because not all could grasp the idea that we can command our creator’s ministering and even warring angels. These angels are always in our midst to protect us. I for one had an experience with them when there was an instance my heart was in pain i immediately called and asked them to help me because i know i was being attack by our enemy and his minions, after that it took just seconds my pain disappear. So angels really could help and protect us wherever we may be.

  4. Don’t give up. James 1:12 tells us God blesses those who patiently endures testing. Afterward they receive the crown of life. James 1:2-4 tells us that when your faith is tested your endurance has a chance to grow. Count your circumstances a blessings because God is working things out for your good. Cry out loud and expect from the Lord. Expect today and watch the Lord answer. Evelyn

  5. Debra Figueroa says:

    Also remember that our children see angels. My youngest daughter, Joy, would see angels. I remembering her staring into the corner of our bedroom or certain areas of our house when she was very small with bright eyes of wonder. When she got older we would drive through the surrounding neighborhoods she would point out the houses that had angels.
    She is now 14 and just entered high school. With her concern of getting to and from school and my work schedule she needed to rely on her father to drive her on most days, but he kept having issues with his car so much that he was afraid to drive it, even though it was just in the shop it seemed to have the same problems. But he had already been speaking negative. She prayed over that car and it has been faithful ever since. I believe angels for my car and gave her many examples when I prayed in faith for the angels to help with safe travel.
    She was in the car with my friend and her daughter when We were on this exit to go west and a van cut in front of us because they wanted to go to north. I felt the angels take over as I whispered “Jesus”. I let go of the control of the brakes, gas pedal and steering wheel I watched in awe and wonder as the blue van, in slow motion, drove right passed our windshield. As soon as the van was safely past us I saw the real time motion of the car moving forward around the curve as I resumed control. Wow…all that I could do is quote scripture, “surely goodness and mercy shall follow us all the days of our lives.” I truly believe that this miracle was the goodness and mercy of God in sending His ministering angels on our behalf.
    Going back to the cars we’ve had in the past. We had one car that kept losing power and stopping, like it had some sort of short or something. We would have to let it sit until it decided to start up again. I always prayed over it. When that happened with my husband, as we only had the one car, he would cuss and swear. Well, every time he came to the place in the road where he spoke evil, the car would act again like it was going to fail. I could drive all around with no problem because of prayer and belief in angels. It would fail on me sometimes but I prayed and it would resume.
    Sometimes I think I have had more faith for our cars than for other issues. I will have to consider these angels in other areas of my life in connection with my prayers for myself and family. We are really needing the assistance of our angels in these end times. I also believe that when we pray God can send ministering angels to others. It is good to remember these things in relationship with God’s truth to expand our faith in all areas of our lives. I pray for those ministering angels over my family, whether they are serving God for themselves or not. They need a defining moment God experience. Amen.

  6. Elaine Bates says:

    I love this teaching!! I received more revelation while reading this!! I believe in angels helping and ministering to us. But it really jumped out when I read they act on God’s Word.. Very Powerful!!! Thank you!!

    1. Hi Paul. I’m not sure what you mean. What are you clicking on? I’m assuming you were able to scroll down on this page since you left a comment? I will try to help but I’m not sure what you mean. I don’t have any pages blocked that require you to sign up for email in order to read. If you could tell me more about what’s happening, I’ll try to fix it. So sorry about that.

  8. Hello Jamie, Thank you for your research in the scriptures and hard work. It helps to build my spiritual life. As you see I am a frequest visitor of your webpage. Thank you so much God bless you. Keep doing the goood work.

    1. Justin cox says:

      Thank you thank you I’m in tears as I reconnect with my guardian angels , I had done this and had got lost in the world and lost my focus and my realization how important this is and how much we need their help tu

  9. I agree with this post as I have physically seen on numerous occasions angels of God surrounding me waiting to be told where to go to fight the battles that the Holy Spirit has ushered me into. I am actually sharing these stories of my heavenly encounters as the Lord has told me it is time to share all I have been shown all my life in warfare. So I was very excited to see other children of God sharing thier testimony of spiritual realm warfare♥️? God bless you and your blog!!!!

  10. John Robertson says:

    Hi Jamie I totally agree what you shared. I had an encounter with an angel years ago after a spiritual warfare session. I walked outside of my house and I noticed a person sitting on my rooftop in broad daylight and ask him, who are you and he said I am angel of the Lord sent from heaven. I truly do believe co- labouring with the heavenly hosts by knowing my true identity in Christ and having a very close intimate relationship with the Holy Spirit always. Amen

  11. Hi Jamie, I loved the read. A good refresher on the Ministry of angels. Thank and I DECREE blessing on your ministry.

  12. Sis Jamie, pray for me as I’m preparing for my hospital final examination tomorrow, that the Lord will send me help from above. He Will command His Angel and put them in charge of me

  13. I was not feeling well when I came across your blog /websites. Before I fell ill, I had been researching and open my mind in studying and hopefully to be receptive to angelic presence. I had a book written by Roland buck from Boise, idaho. But I didn’t read it. This time, I brought in coz I want to read it to connect with angels despite I do not know how. I type angels in Google search . A brief search led me to you.

    1. Hi Shawn, those angels love and serve God and He will send them to watch over you if you ask Him to! Jesus loves you so very much!

  14. I believe we need help from angels in our warfare and ministry. Some say angels feel bored because His saints are not calling on them for help.

  15. Jamie,

    My husband of 34 years has relapsed back into drug use. The enemy has surrounded him with people that profess to being Believers but who are giving him wicked counsel to divorce me. There is no Biblical grounds for divorce and God says He hates divorce. I love my husband and have stood loyally by him all these years. I only want to see my husband turn back to God and be delivered from his addictions and whatever caused him to turn to drugs. Can angels help my family in this situation? How/what should I pray?? I know you are probably very busy but my 9 children and I are desperate for help.



  17. Good morning,
    I find your article very interesting. My question is can we command angels in spiritual warfare? The reason why I’m asking because their was a pastor was calling on angles from another country to help with the election in our country. I was sure if this is possible. Many people have asked me can a command be possible, but I wasn’t sure on this subject.

  18. Philip Edwards says:

    Hi Jamie,
    Very Good teaching…I will put it to practice…Amen!

  19. Great post! Thank you. May God bless your ministry in Jesus name.

  20. Great post! Thank you. May God bless and increase your ministry in Jesus name.

  21. Good teaching.

    I’ve had several people tell me that only God can command the angels. It’s amazing how many people don’t know about this powerful tool God has given us.

    In addition to the verses you have here, I remind them that 1) Jesus was the example of what we should be and He said He could call down angels to defend Him; 2) He also said we would do greater works than He did; 3) death and life are in the power of the tongue (I include this one to emphasize that our words have power and when our words are the Word of God, so much more power). I give them the verses for each of these points.

    I hope this article you’ve published here touches many people who need to know about this wonderful aid God provides for us. God bless you!

  22. Hi Jamie, I am so thankful that the Lord is using you to teach these things. I have just been asked by my local church to assist with the prayer wing of the church and I felt this cannot be done alone. I was led to look into how I can partner with angels and that brought me here. This is very insightful. God bless you.
    Can angels be asked to manifest the presence of God among the congregation?

    1. You can ask God to manifest His own presence. 🙂 And you can charge angels to minister the blessings from Heaven in Jesus’ name. Hope this helps.

  23. Hi Jamie

    Thanks for this words
    It’s what I believed but couldn’t find much on the topic. It’s given me even greater confidence.
    Be Blessed

  24. Thank-you ,so much , Jamie!

  25. For the past few months I’ve had many encounters with angels. I’ve called them “restless angles” because they have let their presence be known at night pacing back & forth in front of the fan at the foot of my bed. Then one night last week, one came right in my face & I felt his presence as he blew across my face. Well, for all these months, I’ve wondered what they want. Today, I got the WORD that they’re waiting on MARCHING ORDERS! WHOA! So I started writing down what I believe the Lord is telling me to say to them! Your article has helped a lot with GOD’S WORD! Thank you!

  26. Kelebogile Mosarwe says:

    Wow, Thank you Jamie for the insight from the Holy Spirit through you. I believe and God has led me to learn a lot on angels but did was a little bit uncomfortable to command angles. I believe they respond to God’s word but was not sure how i command them. This is helping, God is good. I pray the Holy Spirit to help me practice this.

  27. Thanks for sharing the insight and experiences. It is really helpful. Great grace in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen!

  28. Asking GODS Angels to help us fight evil works! Satan sends his fallen Angels to blind us in a way that keeps us from asking GOD and his Angels for help but you have revived our faith in many of us! I have been asking Angels for help and when I do they respond and give me a lift emotionally and helps me defeat evil thoughts, Thank you
