* The titular [[AmericanLawEnforcement FBI]] group of Creator/JohnRingo's ''Literature/SpecialCircumstances'' series is this, more or less, kicking supernatural ass in support of Good (all varieties, not just the Judeo-Christian God).

* Sparhawk and his friends are on a Mission From Goddess in the ''{{Elenium}}'' trilogy of books. Done with a twist, because the goddess in question is not the deity they worship (the knights are members of the story world's equivalent of the Catholic Church, and worship a god), and they don't realize for a long time who's pulling the strings. It's actually something of a concert effort...[[ItMakesSenseInContext sort of]].
* Parodied in ''Discworld/SoulMusic'' by Creator/TerryPratchett, where the characters are "on a mission from Glod" (a dwarf).
** Which is presented as a reference to the page quote from ''TheBluesBrothers''. It happens again later on, when they order "four whole fried rats and some coke". (And a previous book, ''Discworld/MovingPictures'', had a parody of the "108 miles to Chicago" line.)
*** It should also be clarified that the aforementioned coke was neither drugs nor soda, but an actual chunk of coal. Hey, a [[AllTrollsAreDifferent troll]] has to eat ''something''.

** Also used in the Discworld novel ''Discworld/MonstrousRegiment'', in which [[spoiler: Wazzer is given a mission by the country's Duchess (who is not technically a goddess but might as well be) to lead the nation's armies, much like Joan of Arc.]]

The Pope declared tried to get the Normans off his doorstep and keep the Byzantine Empire ('the Shield of Christendom') from being torn apart by its Sassanid + other enemies by declaring war on the non-believers non-believers. It worked...ish... for a while. Of course, the third Crusade ended inconclusively and expected everyone to go fighting them. Suddenly nearly then the Fourth Crusade got diverted into ''sacking Constantinople and toppling the Byzantine Empire'' (at the Venetians' behest). After that it was all of Europe preparred to invade the Middle East. '''Seven''' times.downhill, though there were a further three Crusades after that.

* ''Manga/KamikazeKaitouJeanne'' is all about this. Too bad [[spoiler: that the angel who was sent to help her has been brainwashed by the devil, so she will bring the caught demons to HIM instead of God! Turns out the suspicious black angel was actually her stand-in, rather than a bad guy.]]

* In ''[[FanFic/CissneisPath Cissnei's Path]]'', a VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII fanfic, Aerith's duty to protect the Planet as the last Cetra is framed as such. Shiva mentions that Minerva (the Goddess of the Lifestream) has explicitly given the [[SummonMagic Summonings]] that they use a connection to it so that they can think and act in whatever way would best serve to aid her in the task.

** In the next season, Korra's uncle, Unalaq, is a deeply-spiritual person, and justifies many of his actions with wanting to respect and please the spirits. However, [[spoiler:considering the spirit he's attempting to respect and please is [[GodOfEvil the spirit of darkness and chaos]], and his mission involves wiping out humankind as the world is overrun by dark spirits, this is ''not'' a good thing.]]
