Lynette, an artist, proved this to herself one night when she was awakened by an intruder in her bedroom.
She could see him silhouetted in the doorway. How could she get him to leave?
First she told him to go. “My neighbor will come if I scream,” she said.
“He won't have time,” the intruder replied in a threatening tone.
Suddenly, she remembered Archangel Michael and began giving the Traveling Protection decree at the top of her lungs.
Unlike her earlier attempt to get the intruder to leave, the decree had an immediate effect.
The intruder turned and ran, yelling, “OK, I'll leave you alone, lady!” as he flew out the back door.
