Midnight is equaled to a time of trouble and distress. (Late in the midnight hour, etc.) In the midnight hour we picture ouselves as lonely. But what if we decided, in those moments, not to despair – but to pray and praise?
Besides the obvious benefit of freeing our own minds and hearts from bondage and distress, who else would be made free? As believers in the power and presence of God, the time has come for us to pray & raise through our midnight … so that we can be set free!!
And our freedom will lead others to be free.
In the midnight hour – Paul and Silas worshipped their way to freedom, not just their own, but the freedom of all!
I pray that our Father will give us hearts that know how to turn to Him at midnight. When all seems dark and we feel alone, let us be found praying to Him and lifting Him above the situation. Praying that others see our attitude of praise and be freed from their own oppression, depression, doubt, fear … that they will be free indeed!
Father – thank You for Your word that has made us free!
