Good morning beauties. I need to ask you something. Yesterday was a pretty long day and at night I was exhausted. My body yearned for the sack but I had to stay on the sofa (I just got a sofa in my room. I'm super excited about it!) and keep my eyes open until midnight.
Midnight. Because I had some prayers I needed to say at midnight. My eyes began to droop, I looked at the clock and it was only 11pm, as I waited I began to wonder; is there a reason I'm waiting till midnight? Are there any authorities in the Bible or elsewhere that say that midnight prayers are more powerful, more effective, produce faster results? Does anyone have proof that midnight prayers are more important than prayers that you say at other times? You know, I'm just wondering. God doesn't sleep after all, so why do they make it seem like midnight prayers have some special something attached to them? Like God gives them priority over others...
Here's something else, some people don't just stay up to say midnight prayers, they also do so naked. I first heard about it some years ago on Ladun's blog when a woman was giving a testimony about receiving the fruit of the womb after several years of trying. She said she started doing midnight prayers every night and would cry out to God stark naked during these midnight prayer sessions. I remember a commenter asking why she thought that it was her nakedness that moved God to answer her prayers, but I don't remember reading any response.
A friend of mine also does her midnight prayers naked. I asked her why and she said its a way of telling God "I stand before you naked, just as you brought me into this world". Perhaps to show God the extent of your desperation, or the urgency of your needs. I dunno...
It also reminded me of the "curse of a naked someone". Something about hurting a woman so deeply that she strips herself of all her clothing, goes outside, stands naked in the dark of night and curses you, then best believe that you're in for a very hard life. Is there something about nakedness I should know about?
Ok, that's a deviation from what I'm asking you. I'm more particular about midnight prayers. I can be a very prayerful person so naturally I pray in the mornings and at several other times during the day. Yet, there are times that I've also stayed up till midnight to commune with God.
Up until last night I've never asked why. Has anyone got answers? Do midnight prayers spin God into action? Or is this one of those things some people do just because other people do it and yet none of them know why they do it?
Are you a midnight prayer practitioner? If you are please tell me why.
Hey guys, please download and listen to our EASAH's song here https://kiwi6.com/file/uhe2qqvxq5
I know a lot of us are curious to know what he sounds like. Easah if this is your first single then I'm very impressed, I know that as you proceed you'll brush up the vocals, perfect your lyrics and of course polish your skills.
