Happy Sunday! It can be challenging and difficult at time to spread love, kindness and charity to others when we are in need of it ourselves. Let’s face it, we are not going to see a burning bush with a divine voice spontaneously appear to help us. Honestly I think I’d freak out and pee my panties a little if I did. Once I got over myself, I’d extinguish the fire.
Angels can help you to: Feel good, feel protected, feel loved, feel comforted, remember who you are, attract good-feeling life circumstances, bring joy to others, heal yourself, heal others, take the paths which align with your highest path and purpose, raise your vibration so that you can contribute more of your good energies to this funny old place which is Planet Earth. ~ Anna Sayce Spiritual Teacher
Help from Angels
So what do you do when you need love, kindness, charity, strength yourself and there is nobody around to lift your spirit? What do you do when your spiritual cup doesn’t spill over, rather it sits almost empty. Your vibration lowers and with it, a lack of self love and lack of joy. Keep in mind that self love is not a bad thing if taken into the right context and intent.
I pray and talk to Jesus often, but I occasionally seek out help from an angel during that time too. I mostly ask them to surround me with love and protection, and rarely do I ask for more than that. I know each experience is a lesson. If the lesson is difficult, I will ask them to help me find my inner strength to ride the storm.
Angels must be called upon if you are in need of their help. Of course angels may appear in the form of strangers. Recall the entry in Hebrews 13:2, “Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some have unwittingly entertained angels.
My true angelic experience in the form of a stranger.
This happened during a period of my life when I was financially challenged. Very challenged. I was depressed and my vibrations were low. My emotional state from this spilled over into my work life too. Nothing was going well for me. I had $50 to spend per month on food and necessities. Not much to work with, especially since I’m a borderline anemic. Meat is expensive and at the time, a luxury item. This particular month I had a mere $20 to spend. I was in Market Basket and looking at my meager shopping list while traipsing up an down each isle. I had it all planned out what I could purchase to get me through the next five weeks.
My shopping cart contained a can of beans, a cucumber, one head of lettuce, and a few tomatoes. I was in the dairy section aiming to price eggs (for protein) when it happened. An older woman was following me through the store but I thought nothing of it until she approached me with her fisted hand outstretched. She walked right up to me and handed me $50.00. For no reason. I tried to give it back to her, thanking her for her generosity, but that’s a lot of money. Can she afford it? She insisted I take it. I had tears in my eyes at this loving gesture which I was in desperate need of. I was able to purchase some meat items and more food to fill my pantry.
When I got home, I thanked Jesus for sending her to me and asked him to bless her. This started me my current path to pay it forward while seeking spiritual enlightenment. I never discovered her name, but I do hope she realizes how appreciative I still am at her love and charity.
Thinking back on this day had me wondering where everyone is getting their knowledge. Below is what I found after some research.
Michael, Uriel, Jeremiel, and Gabriel
Did you know that the only angels mentioned by name in the Bible are below?
Michael—Daniel 10:13, 10:21, 11:1, 12:1; Jude 1:9, Rev. 12:7.
Gabriel—Daniel 8:16-18; Luke 1:19, 1:26, 1:28.
Uriel – 2 Esdras 4:1
Jeremiel – 2 Esdras 4:36
The Book of Tobit/Tobias mentions Raphael
Uriel, Raphael, Raguel, Michael, Saraqael, Gabriel, Remiel
The Book of Enoch mentions seven powerful angels (20:1-8). Uriel, who is set over the world and over Tartarus; Raphael, who is set over the spirits of men; Raguel, who takes vengeance on the world of the luminaries; Michael, who is set over the best part of mankind, over chaos, and over Israel; Saraqael, who is set over the evil spirits; Gabriel, who is set over Paradise, the serpents (seraphim), and the cherubim; and Remiel, whom God set over those who rise.
An excerpt from the Introduction page on what the Book of Enoch is about:
“The Book of Enoch teaches the pre-existence-of
the Son of Man, the Elect One, the Messiah, who
” from the beginning existed in secret,” and whose
name was invoked in the presence of the Lord of
spirits, before the sun and the signs were created.”
The author also refers to the ” other Power who was
upon earth over the water on that day,” ” an
apparent reference to the language of Gen. i. 2.
We have thus the Lord of spirits, the Elect One,
and a third Power, seemingly foreshadowing the
Trinity of futurity; but although Enoch’s ideal
Messiah doubtless exercised an important influence
on primitive conceptions of the Divinity of the Son
of man, we fail to identify his obscure reference to
another “Power” with the Trinitarianism of the
Alexandrine school ; more especially as ” angels of
power ” abound in the visions of Enoch. “
Web Version: Book of Enoch . This is the easiest to read
In Revelation 21, it mentions 12 gates with 12 angels, but that’s just it.

How To ask the Angels for help
In Psalm 91:11, it states, “For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways. They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.”
In other words, it seems praying to Yeshua/God for angelic help is the best approach. If you ask for a specific angel for help, they first seek the approval of Yeshua/God first.
Remember, God knows of our needs before we verbalize them in prayer. Every situation is assessed for the best outcome for you in that particular situation. For example, the least amount of hurt in a situation rather than no hurt at all.
Keep in mind, if we are to grow and learn spiritually, we must experience the good and the bad. What we take from them is our responsibility. This is where trust and faith in Yeshua/God comes in. God’s purpose in times of crisis and trouble is to teach us, His children, precious lessons. They are intended to educate, and build us up. When we learn from them and ride out these storms of life, we will see the great promise fulfilled.
So, asking Yeshua/God for Angelic help is not a bad thing, but keep in mind before you ask, is there a purpose for this?
When God tests you, or bad stuff happens, we need to see it as a time to learn and to trust Him by changing what is wrong with us while putting His promises in our heart and feet. When it is over, we can look back and see that our trials have been necessary. We are better, He is glorified!
