In Acts 16:25-26, Bible says, “Around midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the other prisoners were listening. Suddenly, there was a massive earthquake, and the prison was shaken to its foundations. All the doors immediately flew open, and the chains of every prisoner fell off!”
Last night, at midnight, I prayed. For those who asked for prayer request and those who didn’t. I prayed for families and our land. I prayed because God led me to do so. I prayed that doors of bondage would be opened and chains would fall off, immediately.
Some may ask, what is a good prayer to say at night? I say , anything that invokes God to listen. A simple prayer, the Lord’s Prayer or simply, God do it. Others may ask, what are the Biblical hours of prayer? Every hour of every day.
What is the significance of midnight? Midnight signifies the ending of one day and beginning of another. Biblically, midnight is considered the witching hour because it’s the darkest part of the night when evil is at its all time high. However, midnight is also significant because through your prayers, you can destroy what evil sets out to do.
No, I’m not saying you must pray at midnight. In fact, I only penned this devotional to share with you the prayer from last night, but I need you to know this … “Rejoice evermore. Pray without ceasing.” 1 Thessalonians 5:16-17 NLT
