King David used to spend his nights crying out to God for forgiveness and for help. In Psalm 6:6 he says “I am worn out from groaning; all night long I flood my bed with weeping and drench my couch with tears”. That was his style of prayer as a King. As children of God, we are not even close to that level of prayer. David believed that it was God who sustained him through the night and kept him safe from his enemies. At that time, his life was in real danger. In Psalm 3:5, he says “I lie down and sleep; I wake again, because the LORD sustains me” and in Psalm 4:8, he says “In peace I will lie down and sleep, for you alone, LORD, make me dwell in safety”. His prayer in the night and his trust in God to protect him, gave him the peace that enabled him to sleep and wake up praising God in the morning. Prayer in our lives should not end at night. If we are distressed and we need help, we must spend our nights crying out to God till we are at peace. If there’s more you want to add about praying in the night, please comment below.
