I saw this heated debate in a christian group at a time. They were asking for scriptures that said midnight prayers are superior to day time prayers.
The Bible says, while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way. That means if he was awake, the enemy won’t succeed.
Midnight prayers are strategic in spiritual warfare. The enemies and demons roam around at midnight. Whether they will succeed one time or another time, they don’t know but they do walk around at that time. Those that pray at midnight knows. We take note of them. They also take note of us. The best time to impede their activity is when they are actively carrying out their enterprise.
I didn’t say pray all night because you want to have a face-off. But don’t sleep all night.
At another time, in the midnight, Jesus told his disciples to pray so that they won’t fall into temptation. Luke puts it this way: “Why sleep ye? rise and pray, lest ye enter into temptation”. Luk 22:46. Mathew and Mark used a more strategic word: keep watch and pray. Watch here means vigil. It is used for security men who keep night watch.
Midnight prayers disciplines our flesh just as fasting does. Where the spiritual energy is well channeled, our body get under.
Third, midnight atmosphere gives a quiet environment for the human mind and ease our fellowship as well as our ability to decode messages in our spirit.
Look at Job 33:15-16
15 In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falleth upon men, in slumberings upon the bed;
16 Then he openeth the ears of men, and sealeth their instruction
Jesus says MEN ought always to pray and not faint. This includes midnights.
Again, the Bible says pray without ceasing. This also includes midnight.
Some do not even do either midnight or daytime prayers. You are not praying in the day time. You are also not praying at night. What have you been doing?
