Praying at Midnight for Release, Victory and Change ..

Praying at the Midnight Watch!
Recently, I heard the Lord say, “The Midnight Hour is where your victory lies!” In the word of God, midnight could represent the concept of intense darkness or even gloom. However, MIDNIGHT usually meant halfway between dark and the breaking of the light or the middle-point of the night before the light could break through. I believe that is where we are in our lives. When I look at the USA *u can see in INDONESIA also*, I believe this describes the time we are living in.

Over the next month, until the Head of the Year gathering begins on September 25, we are going to be answering His call to watch in the Midnight Hour. In my book, Reordering Your Day, we are reminded of Psalm 119:62 which says, “At midnight I will rise to give thanks to You, because of Your righteous judgments”. This is a time in the Body of Christ when we need the Lord to deal with our enemies that are trying to keep us from entering into His perfect plan for our life, family, city, state and nation. The midnight hour was a time for thanksgiving and of visitation. Additionally, this was an hour when the Lord began to prepare His people to receive many acts of change in the earth. This is also a key time for a redemptive shift to occur in your life. The midnight hour was the time that the children of Israel broke through to their great deliverance. (At midnight the Lord struck down all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, creating their release out of captivity.) This is a great time of pressing through. Midnight is the time for us to praise and press the enemy and arrest His movement.

10 DAY PRAYER FOCUS

Day 1: Read Exodus 11:4, 12:29. Moses said, “Thus saith the LORD, ‘About midnight will I go out into the midst of Egypt’.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.” This last confrontation caused a release from captivity and set God’s covenant people on a path of deliverance from captivity. Listen carefully during this time to hear your Freedom Decree! Declare that you will go into your new!

Day 2 Read Judges 16:3. “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 a hill that is before Hebron.” This is a time of gaining supernatural strength to press through. There are some things that need to tumble down. Ask the Lord for the strength to push.

Day 3: Read Ruth 3 and 4. “And it came to pass at midnight, that the man was afraid, and turned himself: and, behold, a woman lay at his feet.” Ask the Lord for redemptive strategies so that losses can be recovered and your future secured! Find your new place of submission.

Day 4: Read 1 Kings 3, especially verses 16-28. “And she arose at midnight, and took my son from beside me, while thine handmaid slept, and laid it in her bosom, and laid her dead child in my bosom.” Ask for wisdom. Wisdom is given liberally. The Spirit of God will speak what you need to know to make a decision in your difficult situation. He will divide asunder soul and spirit. Memorize Hebrews 4:12!

Day 5: Read Matthew 25:1-13. “And at midnight there was a cry made, ‘Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet Him.'” Are you prepared? Have you trimmed away what would prevent you from going into the new? Are you ready to advance quickly and gain momentum as you go?

Day 6: Read Mark 13, especially verses 32-35. “Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning!” Ask the Lord to fully define the places that He is calling you to watch. To watch is an act of peering into the horizon so you can guard what God has given you as your portion. To watch can cause a restraint to be set in place so the enemy cannot cross that boundary. Declare the Lord to set new boundaries for you. Ask Him to watch or restrain you mouth and speech this time, so you are only speaking faith!

Day 7: Read Luke 11, especially verses 5-8. “And he said unto them, ‘Which of you shall have a friend, and shall go unto him at midnight, and say unto him, Friend, lend me three loaves.'” Prayer is based on sonship, not friendship. God never sleeps or slumbers and is always there to meet you. He is generous and patient. Persistence brings blessing. If you have to persist with a friend, just think of our Father who is always ready to meet your needs. Persist and receive revelation of the supply that is there waiting for you.

Day 8: Read Acts 16:16-31. “And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises unto God: and the prisoners heard them.” Praise Him. Praise Him. Watch the changes begin. Shackles that have been holding you will let go. Others around you will change. A new day of salvation for many will begin.

Day 9: Read Acts 20, especially verse 7. “And upon the first day of the week, when the disciples came together to break bread, Paul preached unto them, ready to depart on the morrow; and continued his speech until midnight.” Take communion. Listen carefully during this hour. Expect the Lord to do a miracle on your behalf!

Day 10: Read Acts 27, especially verse 27. “But when the fourteenth night was come, as we were driven up and down in Adria, about midnight the shipmen deemed that they drew near to some country.” Some of you are like Paul, in a stormy boat trip. You might even think that you should not be where you are. The Lord is going to pull you through this tumultuous time. Stand firm and watch Him get you to the next place. You might lose that boat, but you will find your footing again!

Receive a New Breath of Life!
I am declaring that every depressing or oppressing situation in your life will change in the next few days. Do not lean on your own understanding, but trust the Lord to do something very unusual on your behalf. Our emotions are usually provoked, confused, and even vexed due to the lack of the Glory in our surrounding atmosphere. “Arise, shine your light has come. Arise from the oppression and oppression that has held you down. Rise to new life.” (paraphrased Isaiah 60:1) Ask Holy Spirit to come into your atmosphere. Lay down your right to be right. Submit and watch the power to resist come upon your life. Cry out for the Spirit of God to come and fill your surroundings. Breathe deeply His Glory as He neutralizes the spiritual forces that are contending for your joy!

Change environments. Go for a walk and see something that you have missed in your near vicinity. Let the Presence of the Lord reveal the power of the small thing that He is working on your life. Walk, breathe, pray and decree! Open your window and declare that new opportunities are forming before you. Watch your emotions realign. You will see your circumstances more clearly when you just get out of one setting and see from a different perspective. Taste and see that the Lord is good. He is very near to you, closer than you know. He understands why the others around you cannot see the same as you see. Let His multi-faceted wisdom encompass your life. Declare that His blood barrier has been established between you and the demonic forces that are upsetting and removing the peace He has for your spirit man to enjoy!

Anger Opens the Door for Demonization!
Watch at midnight and set a guard over your mouth and heart! Watch after your heart. Many words are stirring and lots of emotions are flying around in the Body of Christ. You could feel anger over the way others are reacting to you. If we do not process the emotion of anger correctly, we will receive that anger into our heart and the spirit of anger will dwell in our soulish realm and vex our spirit. Few benefits are reaped in becoming angry at others. If one does experience this emotion, there has been established a time frame by the Spirit of God to properly address and release this emotion from the Body. Becoming angry and not interacting with the Spirit of God will harm to your health and make you feel miserable. When anger is expressed in a wrong way, the person you are angry with usually pays less attention to what you are saying than if you’d have said it tactfully and patiently.

I am declaring that you have a quiet, calm spirit. I declare you will perceive every situation with wisdom. “In quietness and confidence will be your strength!”

Blessings,
Prophet Chuck D. Pierce

    IMPORTANT………….BEFORE STARTING YOUR PRAYER 1)FORGIVE ONE AND ALL
    2)HAVE A GOOD CONFESSION WITH JESUS 3) REPENT AND LOVE JESUS
    4)ATTEND THE HOLY MASS AND SURRENDER AT THE OFFERATORY
    5)GO TO A CATHOLIC CHURCH
    6) INITIALLLY ALL WERE CATHOLIC …..ITS BECAUSE OF MANY REASONS MARTIN LURTHER DIVIDED AND STILL WE FIND EVEN MANY CHAPTERS /BOOKS ARE MISSING IN CSI /PROTESTANT BIBLES.
    7) ALL WHO PREACHES WILL NOT ENTER THE KINGDOM OF GOD.
    8) MOTHER MARY IS NOT GOD ,I AM NOT ASKING YOU TO WORSHIP ….JIUST HONOUR HER SAY HAIL MARY AND HOLY MARY HOLY ROSARY

    9) SAYS 1000 TIMES JESUS HELP ME AND JESUS I LOVE YOU

    • Dear Brother u may say Jesus Help me 1000 times but if u still keep worshipping mary nothing is going to happen and u will finally land up in Hell.-a Well Wisher

    • Why catholic and why Mother Mary? We are not idol worshippers,and this is evil spirit making you to say this,you know very well what you are trying to do.Go to your catholic alone and stop encouraging everyone to go there.We love Jesus yes

  14. Thank you man of God.May the almighty continue using you to help some souls see the glory of God which the enemy had covered many years.

  17. i have now started midnight prayer from last night …..as i was looking back on couple of things i realize that there some kind of delay in answers to pray i first looked at my standing with GOD and that is not the problem so i decided to take a different strategy that is( midnight prayer) i prayer and trusting that God will make a supernatural move in my fiances jobless,spiritual life ,in children lives,and sending a Godly husband.
