Morning, noon, and night I cry out in my distress,
and the Lord hears my voice.
Mid-day when the sun is highest in the sky.
We are taught to start strong and end strong so it’s kinda easy
to lag in the middle.
It was from noon until 3pm that darkness covered the land as Jesus
was dying on the Cross. (Matthew 27:45, Mark 15:33, Luke 23:44+45)
A “darkness” can creep over us at this time as many of us need a nap
and are in an afternoon slump.
Pray that you will be on the alert from any temptations and dangers.
(1 Peter 5:8, Matthew 26:40)
We can take a lead from Peter here who went up into his housetop
to pray at noon. (Acts 10:9)
This is a great time to pray all of Psalm 91 over yourself, your family,
your community and your churches.
He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High
Will abide in the shadow of the Almighty.I will say to the LORD, “My refuge and my fortress,
My God, in whom I trust!”For it is He who delivers you from the snare of the trapper
And from the deadly pestilence.
He will cover you with His pinions,
And under His wings you may seek refuge;
His faithfulness is a shield and bulwark.You will not be afraid of the terror by night,
Or of the arrow that flies by day;
Of the pestilence that stalks in darkness,
Or of the destruction that lays waste at noon.
A thousand may fall at your side
You will only look on with your eyes
For you have made the LORD, my refuge,
No evil will befall you,
For He will give His angels charge concerning you,
They will bear you up in their hands,
You will tread upon the lion and cobra,
“Because he has loved Me, therefore I will deliver him;
“He will call upon Me, and I will answer him;
“With a long life I will satisfy him
