IMPORTANCE OF MIDNIGHT PRAYER

Posted by MFM Ministries

Midnight is known to be the most spiritually active period of the day midnight is always a period of intense spiritual activities both by the Kingdom of God and the Kingdom of Satan. During this period the body immune system is at its lowest, that’s the time when a lot of patients die in hospitals and this is the time when witchcraft is at its peak.
Demonic creatures roam about with much anger during this time, also the agents of darkness make their patrols.
You will notice that dreams, revelations, attacks, visitations from the spirit world (both by angels and demonic powers) often come by this time, especially when you are sleeping.
For example, look at the activities of the witches and wizards. They specialize in causing harm and sometimes totally destroying human beings. They don’t have the word “mercy” in their dictionary. That is why a person, even a relation that is possessed with this wicked spirit, can go ahead and destroy the closest person to him/her.

Now, the Bible does not keep us ignorant of the activities that go on in the night hours. Job 36:20Job 36:20
English: King James Version (1611) - KJV

20 Desire not the night, when people are cut off in their place.  

” Job said: “Do not long for the cover of night, for that is when people will be destroyed (people are cut off in their place)”. Psalms 91:5Psalms 91:5
English: King James Version (1611) - KJV

5 Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;  

’ The Psalmist calls it “the terrors of the night”, Matthew 13:25Matthew 13:25
English: King James Version (1611) - KJV

25 But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.  

’ Then Jesus said that night is the time when the enemy comes to sow tares.
If God opens our eyes to see what goes on in our society or even around us at midnight, we will be shocked. So many people you see looking innocent, honorable and decent in the day get involved in some satanic and devilish activities in the night. This does not stop them from coming to church, donating money to religious bodies and charity. Some are actually mobile ‘satanic altars’.
The enemy’s mode of operation is usually to shoot their evil arrows while their victim is asleep. And by the time the person wakes up, he/she will see everything going wrong. They can attack businesses, ministries, marriages, finances, relationships, health, etc. Sometimes, destinies of the victims are taken to their Covens (where they meet) and tied. Or the victim is killed out rightly.
One of the most powerful spiritual tools that God has given, but GROSSLY neglected by Christians, is the midnight prayer. Midnight prayer is the prayer done about 12am.
From the Bible and through ages, the prayers done around this particular time have always brought tremendous and unprecedented results. As a Christian, it is imperative that you live a life of vigil.
Psalms 119:62Psalms 119:62
English: King James Version (1611) - KJV

62 At midnight I will rise to give thanks unto thee because of thy righteous judgments.  

David said, “At midnight I will rise to give thanks unto thee…” As a prophet, David knew the importance of Midnight prayer. There are levels you can never attain in the spirit without mastering the act of praying in the midnight. There are levels of revelations you cannot get without prolonged midnight prayers. And there are also satanic entities, thrones and chains you can never dismantle unless through prolonged midnight battles.
The aim of this write-up is to awaken the church (Christians) to this great spiritual weapon made available to us by God and any Christian that masters the act of praying in the midnight will ultimately control what happens in the day. Exodus 12:29Exodus 12:29
English: King James Version (1611) - KJV

29 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. dungeon: Heb. house of the pit  

., the angel of the Lord smote the 1st born at midnight.
If you forward the night to almost 2500years later we see Paul and Silas in jail due to persecution.
But at midnight..” Paul and Silas prayed and sang hymns of praise unto the Lord…..” Acts 16:25Acts 16:25
English: King James Version (1611) - KJV

25 And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises unto God: and the prisoners heard them.  

and an angel of the Lord freed them.
There is saving power at midnight brethren.
If you must control the activities around you and dismantle Satanic ordinances in your life, then you must learn to wake up at midnight to fight against the powers of darkness. Now, our interest here is that for you to battle and defeat these agents of darkness that mostly operate in the midnight, you must also be awake at the same time of their operation. You must wake up to render their evil arrows, enchantments, curses and incantations against you ineffective. And cause serious and perpetual havoc on them. All these can only be possible through powerful and sustained midnight prayers and by engaging in very dynamic, prolonged prayers, especially in the middle of the night.
You may not believe it, most of the problems we’re going through today were first shot into our lives by demonic forces while we were sleeping. Do you know that almost everything about this life is decided in the spirit realm before they manifest physically? This explains why some of us will always see things (including blessings) in our dreams or visions before we receive them physically. Does it happen to you? The same is with satanic arrows. They are first shot in the spirit realm before they manifest physically.
Nothing happens just like that. There is always a cause in the spirit realm, then the effect in the physical. We must wake up and begin to control our midnights. This is where we have the battlefield. And our exploits here will determine how great, powerful, prosperous and healthy we will become in the daytime.
Jesus Christ our Saviour and Redeemer in the Bible, won midnight battles and consequently controlled the day. I want you tonight to imitate Samson who in Judges 16:3Judges 16:3
English: King James Version (1611) - KJV

3 And Samson lay till midnight, and arose at midnight, and took the doors of the gate of the city, and the two posts, and went away with them, bar and all, and put them upon his shoulders, and carried them up to the top of an hill that is before Hebron. bar...: Heb. with the bar  

“…..lay until midnight, rose and uprooted the doors of the gates of the city…”
Uproot the kingdom of the devil with prayer.
Remember the bridegroom shall come at midnight Mathew 25:6 and we should be found in control of the situation.
pray at midnight tonight.
I declare may the armies of the devil lose hold tonight when you shall pray.
Utilize the night to break the backbone of the enemy.
ARISE AT NIGHT!!
