What time is it? It is Time to watch and pray.
The end times, The end of all things is at hand, Be serious and watchful in prayers
1 Peter 4.7
Time for serious prayers. Elijahs arise and pray, The fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much. The weapon is prayer, standing in the gap and crying before God without personal agenda but groaning to birth the purposes of God. Prayer is way above our needs but it help is a way to connect with the heart of the Father to know His perfect will.
What is a fervent prayer? It is a prayer with intensity, fueled by the Holy Spirit. Our God heard and honored that earnest fervent prayer of His servant, Elijah. Even today, God is serious business of hearing and answering prayers of His people. Do not be silent but it is time to rise and lift a fervent prayer before God. What is His promise?
To understand His promises, we will need to be sober. Yes, Let us be sober in the spirit.
Be sober and be self controlled, be vigilant, be watchful because the your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour.
1 Peter 5.8.
The devil is seeking to devour but we are called to be alert in the spirit. Soberness is key as you take your position in prayer, hearing and being sensitive to the Holy Spirit. Discerning the will of and the timing of God.
Time to Wake up out of sleep, let us rise up and put on the armor of light. Armor of light that we may see what God is doing. we cannot see without the light. Even in the midst of darkness, we put off the work of darkeness that we may walk in the light of God.
And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed. 12 The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light. 13 Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying. 14 But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof.
Time to watch, by standing fast in the faith, by being brave and strong. We cannot be moved by the storms of life, we have to stand in the faith of God. What God has said about us, we are overcomers in Christ Jesus. Stand in the foundation of faith.
Watch, stand fast in the faith, be brave, be strong.
1 Corinthians 16.13
Time to Pray for a Watchmen anointing. It is our time to Pray for grace to rise in boldness and take our watchmen position. As a royal priesthood, we are called to be watchmen on the wall today. We called to sound a warning and preach the good news of Jesus Christ. Everyone is called to stand in the place of a watchman and seek the Lord's purpose over our families, ministries and the nations.
On your walls, O Jerusalem, I have appointed watchmen; All day and all night they will never keep silent. You who remind the Lord, take no rest for yourselves
Time to Pray for an anointing to keep praying and not being silent. We refuse to be silenced by the storms and the affairs of this world. Let us declare like David,
Surely I will not go into the chamber of my house, Or go up to the comfort of my bed;
I will not give sleep to my eyes Or slumber to my eyelids, Until I find a place for the Lord, A dwelling place for the Mighty One of Jacob.
Let us pray for Watchmen Anointing to hear the voice of God. May the Church hear what God is speaking. Watchmen also protected the crops by watching for those who would seek to steal their harvest. Watchman, Keeps his eyes open to watch for the enemy, but also keep his ears open to hear God's Word.
Son of man, I have made you a watchman for the house of Israel; so hear the word I speak and give them warning from me. But stay awake at all times, praying that you may have strength to escape all these things that are going to take place, and to stand before the Son of Man.”
Father God, help us to stay awake as we take our post in the spiritual watchtowers.
pray for grace to each one of the readers that we will not slumber but our hearts will be filled with your Holy Spirit to watch and pray. In Jesus name, we pray. Amen
