20 Prevailing Midnight Prayers to Pray at 3AM

Prevailing Midnight Prayers to Pray at 3AM

As children of God, our primary mode of communication with the heavenly father is via prayers. It is through prayers that we relate our thoughts, concerns, grievances, wants and needs to the one who can provide all. Also, as Christians we also use prayers to give thanks to God, to confess our sins, and to seek God’s infinite mercies. 

Prayers are very sacrosanct to the lives of every human being, because as the Holy Bible puts it in the book of Ephesians 6:12, 

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” 

We need prayers to get by at all points of our lives and in every aspect. Any time you feel the urge to pray, it is advised that you do, and also keep to a particular schedule of prayers for yourself. Time scheduling for prayers then begs the question, are there specific hours of the day or night when it is best to pray?

The Bible does not categorically tell of a particular time when Christians ought to pray. However, there are certain instances in the Bible where it is suggested that the odd hours of the night just before dawn are the times when powerful prayer sessions are undergone. At various times when Jesus was written to have prayed, there were times when most people slept, the same can be said of the apostles. 

For the purpose of this article, we are focusing on the context of praying at 3 AM. 3 AM is a significant time standing between the night before and the dawn of a brand new day. Prayers done at this hour signify you are about to command your day and your life from the particular hour onward. 

Activities carried out between the hours of 3 AM and thereabouts have implications on both the physical and the spiritual realms. During these hours, the Angels of heaven are hovering around, guarding the earth and all that is of the Lord herein. However, so are the forces of darkness, who take on the veil of darkness to carry out their evil machinations against man as he slumbers. 

While 3 AM prayers are very beneficial to us as prayerful Christians because they help us both in maintaining discipline and focus, it is important to note that there is no specifically slated time in the bible for prayers, so far these prayers come from the heart, in all sincerity. Every prayer is heard by God at all times.
