Sometimes after a long exhausting day, were just too tired to engage in a long session of intercession, it is easy to fall into the temptation of joyless prayer.
On these evenings how can we recapture the joy of communion with God before we go to sleep?
I’ve found that the key is to wait on Him; just wait. Let His presence rest upon us. Instead of focusing on ourself, our needs, our weaknesses, or our desires, return to Him. Give God time to rest upon us and make Himself known to us, for as His Word says, “In returning and rest you shall be saved; in quietness and confidence shall be your strength” (Isaiah 30:15). Basking in His quietness may sound easy, but sometimes we may find that it’s hard. Satan may suddenly fill our mind with all sorts of distractions and cares, or we may become so sleepy, we can’t hold our head up.
Whatever the enemy’s tactic, don’t let him rob us of the nighttime joy God wants to bestow on us! Gently begin to praise the Lord in your prayer language until the enemy flees and we recapture the joy of God’s presence....
