God blesses and energizes those who sacrifice by fasting
sleep in order to pray. Special grace accompanies this experience,
along with the privilege of witnessing miracles, healings and
visitations of God’s Spirit.
Being available to God all through the evening hours and
denying the flesh produces an environment that welcomes His manifest
presence, provokes intercession and brings clarity of His will. Once
God reveals what is on His heart, the waiting watchman is invited to
intercede in agreement with His purposes.
Waiting on God is essential. How have you been impacted by praying all night?
Father, deliver us from the need to hurry and to achieve
instant results to our petitions. Teach us to wait for Your word, so
that we will know how to intercede in accordance with Your wishes.
Waiting is not a discipline we naturally embrace, but because we love
You, we are willing to learn—to change. Amen.
