Today we will be dealing with prayer points to say in the midnight. Have you been trusting God for a particular thing and it’s not coming yet. Have you been badly tormented by the enemy and you have been praying to God for mercy but it seems God has gone far away that He can hear you?
Sometimes when you keep doing the same thing with the same pattern, results are limited. Have you tried praying in the midnight? You must have heard that popular song that says Holy Holy Holy, Lord God Almighty, Early in the morning our soul shall rise to thee. There has been numerous proofs to justify the fact that prayers are answered mostly in the midnight. The book of Psalm 5:3 In the morning, O Lord, You will hear my voice; In the morning I will order my prayer to You and eagerly watch. Why did the Psalmist insisted that in the morning, the Lord will hear his prayers. It is because he understands that God is nearer in the cool of the morning.
Many of the successes we celebrate in the day were sealed and confirmed in the midnight. So if you have been spending all your nights for sleep, you have not been doing well. In the midnight, there is no break in communication between the early realm and the spiritual realm. Little wonder Satan and his demons strike mostly in the midnight when man is asleep. Recall that the scripture says in book of Matthew 13:25 but while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat and went his way. The time of the day we sleep is in the night. The enemy rarely strike during the day when a man is still very active, he waits until the dead of the night has arrived before he strikes. Similarly, we must be crafty like the serpent in our spiritual works too, we should not spend all the night snoring and rolling from one edge of the bed to another.
A quick recall, Jacob had an encounter with the angel of the Lord in the midnight. Meanwhile, Jacob had initially let down his guard when he slept off and didn’t realize that the spirit of God was there because he was deep asleep. However, when he got another chance, he utilized it to ensure that he had a life-changing encounter with God. For you to understand why you need to pray in the midnight, let’s quickly highlight some importance of midnight prayers.
Importance of Midnight Prayers
It Helps Terminate Demonic Attack
Because most attacks of the enemy are done in the midnight, when we stay up to pray, our spiritual alertness is heightened. This reduces the success of the enemy’s attack on us. The reason why a thief will come in the night because they believe, naturally a man is weak in the night. The body calls for rest during this time. So they enemy will capitalize on the need of the body to strike a man.
It Makes Us Mature Spiritually
The spirit of God speak everytime. It is left for us to position ourselves to hear from Him. If you think midnight prayer is very easy try starting one today. It takes conscious and deliberate effort to deprive your body the rest that it needs. And most times, even while we sleep, the spirit of God wants to communion with us.
The moment we can obey the leading of the spirit when it calls for prayer in the midnight, our level of spirituality increases and this means we can obey almost anything commanded by God.
We Concentrate More
Prayer is not just an activities that can be done anyhow. It is a communication between the mortals and the immortals, between man and God. It requires some level of concentration. During the day there are so many things that would demand our attention, so concentrating in place of prayer may not be attainable.
However, midnight prayers help us concentrate more. No noise from within or around, no interference, just you and the father. The level of concentration is heightened.
It Is Essential For Life-changing Encounter
The spirit of God is always available. When we pray in the midnight, it put us at the edge of having a life-changing encounter with the father. Jacob was spiritually sensitive to have known that this man is not ordinary. He must have been meditating in his heart before the angel arrived. That was why he could identify that this is not human.
When we pray at night, we stand a better chance of having an encounter with the father.
