THE POWER OF MIDNIGHT PRAYERS

THE POWER OF MIDNIGHT PRAYER WARFARE

Acts 16:25 – 26, “And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises unto God: and the prisoners heard them. And suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken: and immediately all the doors were opened, and every one’s bands were loosed.” 

Exodus 12:29-30, ”And it came to pass, that at midnight the Lord smote all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, from the firstborn of Pharaoh that sat on his throne unto the firstborn of the captive that was in the dungeon; and all the firstborn of cattle. And Pharaoh rose up in the night, he, and all his servants, and all the Egyptians; and there was a great cry in Egypt; for there was not a house where there was not one dead.”

31 And he called for Moses and Aaron by night, and said, Rise up, and get you forth from among my people, both ye and the children of Israel; and go, serve the Lord, as ye have said.

One of the most powerful and yet the most important time to fight against the enemy, is the midnight hours. Midnight prayer is the prayer done at 12am.  It is the hour the enemy gathers together with their charms to fight against their victims. A wicked person can stand up at that hour to fire evil arrows. During the midnight hours, people often encounter bad dreams, and spiritual attacks on their body.

The power of the midnight is a battlefield between believer and the devil. The common time for spiritual attacks are from 12am -3am. These attacks are organized by witchcraft powers, marine powers, household powers, strongman, witch doctors etc.  Many dangerous things are crawling, moving and flying at midnight hours. The Bible says, Psalms 91:5 “Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;” 

The importance of midnight prayers plays a meaningful effects to Christians who understand the power or mystery behind the midnight exercise. The spirit of the Lord in your life will give you confidence and power to wrestle against principalities and powers. Until the Almighty God is there in that battle, you cannot come out victorious.

  • Do you know that those that exercise midnight prayers, only return back with attacks?

     

  • Do you know that many people only take midnight prayers and stop half way?

     

  • Do you know that not many people can withstand the demons at midnight hour?

     

  • Do you also know that not many Christians have the full knowledge of the great power in midnight?

     

There are levels you can never attain in life without mastering the act of praying in the midnight. There is no way a person can obtain a total breakthrough without prolonged midnight prayers. And there is no way a person can overcome his enemies without praying at midnight. It is sad but true that there are so many Christians that are full of sleeps. Many believers have given the enemy full access to operate in their life. They have limited interest in midnight prayer warfare. 

During the sleep of many, demons have successfully sown many tares. The tares of backwardness, stagnation, failure at the edge of breakthrough, sickness, poverty, late marriage and others are suffering, confusion, mental attack etc. Jesus gave one illustration in the book of Matthew that a man went to his farm and planted good seed and put some men there to guide it. But when the men started sleeping and did not do their work of being vigilant, the enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat and went his way. Matthew 13:24,25. 

This illustration has a lot of spiritual lessons. The watchmen were not vigilant or watchful and so the enemy came and then planted evil seeds on the same farm! Spiritually speaking, any Christian who is not vigilant and watchful, or not a lover of midnight prayers, the devil will come and sow all manners of problems in his or her life. That is why you see many Christian lives full of problems, obstacles and setbacks even though they are very committed in the Church, sowing seeds and working for God. 

Why? because they are full of sleeps! One clear divine sign is this; If you are on the bed sleeping and you are rolling around your bed unnecessary in the night, it could be a sign that God wants you to stand up and take some prayers. Because that hour could be the time the enemy is working against you.
