I actually felt like a boulder of sheer weight had been lifted off my lap by the women as they wrapped up their prayers and walked away from me. I left with a sense of relief that they had lifted the burden off of me and placed it in the hands of the Lord. Soon after I got in my car, I heard the Lord speak into my heart that I needed to call my ex-husband who recently moved several states away.
“You know,” he told me after he picked up the phone. “I was praying for you this morning. I prayed God would surround you with His angels.”
I was virtually speechless, but not entirely. I am rarely speechless, as anyone who knows me can attest to. Needless to say, I was humbled beyond measure – and in awe once again – at the majesty of the Lord. He had answered my ex-husband’s prayers that very morning from several states away to surround me with angels.
So the angels God sent me didn’t have wings that I can see, but these new women God has brought into my life sure have wings on their hearts. I wonder why I have such difficulty sometimes believing that God really answers prayers. Who am I to say when God will answer them, and how He will answer them. God, in His infinitely loving, powerful, and ever creative ways, will even answer an ex-husband’s prayers to send human angels miles upon miles away. Nothing like being surrounded by angels, eh?
