‘Midnight hour‘ situations
During the stormy days of your Christian walk, the words of Fred Hammond and Radical For Christ’s “We’re Blessed” live Gospel video will, I hope, keep you spiritually encouraged. Those words (beg. 5 ½ minutes into video) are spiritual food for thought.
Spoken fervently by a Woman in the group:
Acts Chapter 16 and verse 25. The Bible says: “Then 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 doors were shaken . . . and immediately everyone bands were loosed”
All we really want you to know tonight is when you find yourself in a midnight hour and if you haven’t then maybe you will . . . there are 2 principles that will guarantee your success.
Number one, pray. Why? Because the Bible [in James 5] says: “That the prayers of the righteous man availeth much.”
When you get up off your knees, and you believe that [as stated in Ephesians 3] He is able to do exceeding abundantly, according to all that you ask of Him, according to the power that’s already working in you, then [Number two] you lift your hands and give Him praise. Why? Because He dwells, He dwells, in the midst of your praise. Now I’m gonna need some loud mouths and some sanctified hands to lift your voice and say: He dwells in my praise !
