THE NIGHT HOURS
Mark 13:32-35 (33) – Be careful! Watch! You don’t know the exact time. (GW)
When the Bible says, pray without ceasing, it does not exclude any particular time of the day (1 Thessalonians 5:17). As Christians, we ought to pray in the morning, noon, afternoon, evening, night and midnight because as seen in our Bible reading, we must be at alert (Psalm 55:17). There was a devoted woman of prayer who became a target for the kingdom of darkness. One midnight, they sent an evil bird to attack her first son, but she was praying. Suddenly, an angel of God struck the bird with lightning, and it transformed into a witch. Later in the day, the witch confessed and was mobbed by the angry crowd.
We must not underestimate the power of prayer more so; prayers prayed at the hours of the night because while we sleep, there are forces that manipulate destinies (Matthew 13:25). We need to uproot these demonic kingdoms even as Samson rooted out the doors of the city at midnight (Judges 16:3). Remember, Sennacherib also lost 185,000 men at night (2 Kings 19:35-37). Therefore, as children of God, let us intercede time after time because it is a vital source of power.
Beloved, if Jesus could pray all night, it means that; for us to experience divine intervention not excluding the singles who need miracle marriages; we can engage in midnight prayers (Ruth 3:8). More importantly, do you know that the Bridegroom (Jesus) shall return at midnight? (Matthew 25:6). Are you ready?
Song: Prayer is the Master Key
1. Father, please make me alert in prayers and to maximise the secrets of midnight prayers.
1. Masquerades of my family line, chasing after my glory in the dream, spiritual or physical; catch fire!
2. Thou fire of God! Uproot every seed of barrenness in my life, spiritual growth, career and ministry.
3. Ancestral taskmaster, saying I must die in poverty and failed glory; expire by fire!
YOUR NIGHT IS RECHARGED BY FIRE!
