Day Two – Watch in Prayer

You need to understand what it means to watch in prayer. Jesus instructs you to watch in prayer in Mark 13:33, “Take heed, watch and pray; for you do not know when the time is.” To watch means to be spiritually alert. John Bevere writes,

“The primary way to keep spiritually alert is through prayer. So, what does it mean to be vigilant in prayer? One definition of vigilance is “keep a careful watch for danger.” A healthy prayer life allows you to recognize and respond to attacks from the enemy before they even happen. Being vigilant in prayer gives you insight into things unseen. It allows you access into the spiritual realm.”3

The Bible gives the following instructions on watching in prayer:

  • Matthew 26:41 – “Watch and pray, lest you enter into temptation. The spiritindeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.”
  • Luke 21:36 – “Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be countedworthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand beforethe Son of Man.”
  • 1 Thessalonians 5:16 – “Therefore let us not sleep, as others do, but let uswatch and be sober.”
  • 1 Peter 4:7 – “But the end of all things is at hand; therefore be serious andwatchful in your prayers.”
    Ask the Lord to give you a clear understanding of the times. Ask the Lord to helpyou develop the discipline of hearing His voice so you can experience His divine guidance during this season.Scriptures to read and study
