This is another aspect of God’s help, and it is provoked by prayers. When Peter was held up in prison, awaiting death, the saints prayed for Him continually and God sent an angel to rescue him: Read Acts 12:5-8, 11 from your Bible.
Angels are our security agents and they excel in strength (Ps. 103:20). They are there to ward off all evils and plagues from us. They are the fire fighters of heaven. God’s rescue corps. Their job is to intervene in the midst of trouble and rescue the believer. They also ensure that only God’s will is established in the believer’s life.
When Jesus was arrested before His crucifixion, Peter went wild, brought out his sword and cut off a man’s ear. But Jesus stopped him from doing more harm and said to him:
“…Put up again thy sword into his place: for all they that take the sword shall perish with the sword.
Thinkest thou that I cannot now pray to my Father, and he shall presently give me more than twelve legions of angels?” (Matthew 26:52-53).
Help from above is available for every area of our need, when we call upon God in prayers.
