* On my bed I remember you; I think of you through the watches of the night. Psalm 63:6
* But his delight is in the law of the LORD, and on his law he meditates day and night. Psalm 1:2
* I will praise the LORD, who counsels me; even at night my heart instructs me. Psalm 16:7
* In the night I remember your name, O LORD, and I will keep your law. Psalm 119:55
* My eyes stay open through the watches of the night, that I may meditate on your promises. Psalm 119:148

Yesterday we saw the importance of praying in the morning; today's focus is on praying at night. King David has set us a great example as a prayer warrior. He was constantly connected with God, day in and day out.

Prophet Isaiah too insists on praying in the night; he writes: My soul yearns for you in the night Isaiah 26:9

Prophet Jeremiah reminds us in Lamentations 2:19, Arise, cry out in the night, as the watches of the night begin; pour out your heart like water in the presence of the Lord.

Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ also prayed at night. In Luke 6:12 we read, One of those days Jesus went out to a mountainside to pray, and spent the night praying to God.

We may reason we do not have time to pray; but it is high time we make time to pray. If we don't pray for our children who else would?  If kings and prophets and our Lord Himself chose to pray, what makes us think we can survive without it?

Seek the LORD while he may be found; call on him while he is near. Isaiah 55:6

    My day starts off in the word thanks to a great accountability partner that texts every morning to see if I'm up. Of course, the daily study doesn't start until I pray. There are times where I can read the words, but nothing appears to me. I learned through our preacher to pray to God to open my heart and my mind to his message, that he may speak to me through his word. This has helped tremendously! Shower time is also a good prayer time. I mostly pray for the day, my hubby, etc. Car time (we live in the country) can be great prayer time with my kids as we head into town for school. I don't pray nearly enough. I feel very inadequet about this topic. So maybe you could say a prayer for me about my prayer life?
