Sins creep from their lurking places when the darkness reigns. – Charles Spurgeon.
As we slumber, the enemy is busy. It is an interesting study on the watches of the night. Knowing the purpose of the hour in watch, brings a new meaning to prayer during the night time hours.
One of my favorite writers over the years has been Charles Spurgeon. I have learned so much from his teachings. This morning, I was reading from one of his devotions – Morning and Evening. The verse came from Isaiah:
“Watchman, what of the night?” – Isaiah 21:11
We are in a time, in our Country, where the enemy is busy during the watches of the night – plotting evil. The enemy knows his time is running out and he works diligently doing what he does best – destroying – causing havoc in our hearts.
What about the night, watchman? Have you ever been called to pray – to watch during the night time hours?
I have. Most of the time, the Father has awakened me during the watch hours from 3-6 AM to pray. It is a time, right after the midnight hours when the enemy has been busy – it is after those hours in the dark – that many have fallen prey to his ways. So the Father, comes to awakened the watchmen to pray against the damage of the midnight hours.
Watchmen, are you aware of the times? Have you been called to sound the alarms?
Watchmen, what hour has the Father called you to pray during the night hours?
My Song: The first time I heard this song was about 18 years ago. Oh how my heart quickened! What a glorious day that will be – when Jesus comes to get the Father’s children.
BUT until that day, watchmen are needed. Are you willing to watch and pray and stand against the works of the enemy? Are you willing to sound the alarms?
Then let the Father know.
Wonderful post. The night of praying through the night is not something you hear often, but it makes sense.
