Twilight Prayers

I will praise the Lord, who counsels me; even at night my heart instructs me.  Psalms 16:7

I wake up and start praying for someone I know or barely know. It might be someone with a broken heart I’ve come across on Facebook or someone from my past who has hurt me. I start praying for them and immediately fall back asleep. In the morning I can barely remember what my prayers were about, but I do remember I prayed for different people at various times of the night during my twilight sleep.

As I contemplated this continuous phenomenon, I realized my spirit is always willing and continues to pray while I sleep. Psalm 16:7 says, I will praise the Lord, who counsels me; even at night my heart instructs me.

Sometimes we tend to put our needs before others’ needs when communicating with the Lord, but the Spirit knows there is much more that needs to be said. The wee hours of the morning are a wonderful time for the Holy Spirit to intervene because our minds and flesh are completely out of it.

If you sometimes wake up and a friend or family member who is in need comes to mind, your spirit may be trying to pray for that special person. We are all connected, and God is concerned for you as well as your loved ones.

Let God work through you, even in your twilight prayers.
