Do you have a need in your life, but it seems like no matter what you do, it’s not getting better? Have you tried to pray, but nothing seems to be happening?

You may find yourself in a situation where you are desperate for God to do something in your life. We all go through this at one point or another. But the good news is that God wants to help us with our needs! He has given us his word so we can know how he feels about our situation and he also gave us prayer for a breakthrough!

There is power in praying at the midnight hour as in the bible we read that Jesus and his disciples prayed at midnight. When God destroyed the firstborn sons of the Egyptians as he was delivering Israel from slavery, Israel had to be ready for this as God had given them a way out before the firstborn son of every house died. They were instructed by God to put the blood on their doorpost and it will protect them. Then the angel of the Lord came in the midnight to destroy the firstborn. So when the Israelites saw the great power God had, they believed in him and his servant Moses. Power came at midnight as a way to give people a chance for a breakthrough. When we cry out to God at the midnight, this is a time for spiritual wafare, that’s why the devil doesn’t want us to pray at this time.

Paul and Silas were in prison singing hyms, at the midnight hour, an earthquake happened and opened the prison doors, the chains fell from their feet. They were freed as if nothing had ever bound them. It did not matter how secure the prison doors were, what the jailor had locked or chained up, what creatures of darkness roamed that place, or how deep was their pit. God wanted to do a miracle and he used Paul and Silas for this!

So why not give midnight prayers a chance? This is a time of power that can break chains and bring freedom into your life. In Psalm 119:62 the bible also says that God’s word is a lamp unto our feet and light unto our path. So if we truly want a breakthrough, why not pray according to God’s word? I know it may be difficult at times to get up in the middle of the night to pray, but you have to start somewhere! And once you see what difference it makes, you’ll never go back to sleeping.

So let me encourage you today that no matter how long your journey is or how dark it seems right now, keep pressing forward and with every step believe that God will do great things in your life. Amen!
