Midnight Hour

Seems like in the sixties Midnight Hour was important in my life and in the music of the day.  Midnight was usually my curfew at night.  Midnight hour was the time to be home or be grounded.  When I listen to music from that era the phrase is used often in the lyrics.

What makes midnight so different than noontime?   Wilson Pickett wrote that first well known song in 1965... In the Midnight Hour. In 1985 there was a show In the Midnight Hour.  It was a badly rated comedy horror romance. I am glad I missed that one.

Even in the Bible it mentions the midnight hour. At midnight you must walk in the light of the Lord. When darkness comes and the midnight hour arrives, call upon the Lord in prayer and praise. Watch the earth shake and movement happen.

Sometimes when we stay up late, I love my midnight hour conversations with God. This time of night is serene and filled with peace. Often daylight is  filled with chores and things to do and I neglect the time with the Father.  But at night, looking up at the star filled sky and listening to the sounds of the night bring me closer to God. It makes sleep come easier.  God promises in Psalm 127:2 that he giveth His beloved sleep.  It is so important to commit yourself into His hands in prayer before falling asleep.

Seems like Jesus prayed often at night as did David.  Prayer is a powerful entity and in the late hours of the night or wee hours of the morning before dawn breaks the sky, we seem to connect easier to God. As I child we often prayed the prayer below along with a German Prayer taught to us by our grandmother.

Now I lay me down to sleep, I pray the Lord my soul to keep. If I die before I wake, I pray the Lord my soul to take.

"And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed and sang praises unto God; and the prisoners heard them. And suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken; and immediately all the doors were opened, and every one's bands loosed." Acts 16:25-26
