6:00 P.M. - 9:00 P.M. - First Watch of the Night
A Sample Prayer
A Time of Quiet Reflection
Yahshua used the Evening Watch to go aside and pray (Matthew 14:15-23).
Yahshua also healed many sick people during this time (Mark 1:32; Luke 4:40). This watch is usually for those who have a strong apostolic calling and anointing to break strongholds and walls. This watch is for seasoned believers who are determined to do mighty things with boldness in Yahweh.
Period for covenant renewal with the Father
Through Yahshua, we have a Covenant with Yahweh. In this watch, we can ask Yahweh to manifest the blessings of His Covenant into our lives. This is also a time to release judgment on the wicked and decree into the new day Yahweh’s blessings upon our life, family, and other people, as He leads. Whatever happens during the day is determined to a large extent by what is done during the night. The evening is the “foundation” of night and the beginning of the watches. People involved in the occult say that they begin their active witchcraft at midnight. If we begin to pray strategically during this watch with the Father’s leading, we can prevent the kingdom of darkness from releasing curses on the new day.
Prayer decrees for this prayer watch: Father, in the name of Yahshua,
I am Your child by faith in Yahshua, and I renew my covenant commitment to love You with all my heart, soul and strength. Through Yahshua, I am Abraham’s descendant and inheritor of the covenant blessings You promised to Abraham (Galatians 3:26, 27, 29).
You have put Your laws in my mind, and You have written them on my heart. You are my Yahweh and I belong to You.
Your Word is like a lamp that guides my steps and a light that shows the path I should take. (Psalm 119:105).
Your words are what sustain me; they are food to my hungry soul. Your Word brings joy to my heart because I have hidden it in my heart so that I might not sin against you (Jeremiah 15:16, Psalm 119:11).
You are my Yahweh and I trust You with all my heart and do not depend on my own understanding. I seek Your will in all I do, and You instruct me and guide me along the best pathway for my life. You advise me and watch my progress; Even at night, You give me wisdom and tell me what to do (Proverbs 3: 5-6; Ps32.8, 16:7).
I take delight in You and You give me my heart’s desires (Psalm 37:4). I trust You and I lack no good thing (Psalm 34:10). You supply all my needs from Your riches in glory because of what Yahshua has done (Philippians 4:19), and I have plenty to give to every good work (2 Cor. 9:8). I have favor, good understanding and esteem in Your sight and in the sight of man (Prov. 3:4).
