It is during this sixth prayer watch that we are
usually up and moving.
Our day has begun.
We enter the business place, or maybe the education arena.
It is during this watch that most of us are out and about
fulfilling our purposes here on earth. (Matthew 20:3)
Doors have opened. Stuff is in motion.
Appointments are kept.
Life moves along.
Interestingly, it was during this prayer watch at
9 am that Jesus Christ was crucified. (Mark 15:25)
Fulfilling His purpose here on earth.
The very reason for Jesus coming to the earth accumulated there on that Cross, salvation for all mankind. (Isaiah 53:3-5)
Christ’s prayer, “Not My will but Thine be done.” (Luke 22:42)
Was also fulfilled during this watch.
It is during this time that we are to embrace the cross and pray for a crucified life with Christ. (Galatians 2:20, Matthew 10:38-39, Colossians 3:2-11)
These people are not drunk, as some of you are assuming.
Nine o’clock in the morning is much too early for that.
After this 9 AM infilling Peter went on to preach for a good long time.
About 3,000 we baptized and added to the Church that day. (Acts 2:41)
Pray for the harvest. (John 4:35)
Since Christ was crucified on the Cross during this prayer watch
we can pray the benefits of the Cross! (Psalm 103:1-5)
Bless the Lord, O my soul,
And all that is within me, bless His holy name.
Bless the LORD, O my soul,
And forget none of His benefits
Who pardons all your iniquities,
Who heals all your diseases;
Who redeems your life from the pit,
Who crowns you with lovingkindness and compassion;
Who satisfies your years with good things,
So that your youth is renewed like the eagle.
