Daily D – 1 Samuel 3:9

by | Apr 8, 2021 | Daily D | 0 comments

He told Samuel, “Go and lie down. If he calls you, say, ‘Speak, LORD, for your servant is listening.’” So Samuel went and lay down in his place.
1 SAMUEL 3:9 (CSB)

Have you ever awakened in the night for no apparent reason? This happens to me more and more these days. What do you do on such occasions?

I normally try to go back to sleep. Rest is important. Our minds and muscles perform best when they are well rested. We are to work from a place of rest and not settle for resting from our work. 

There is something else we can do in those midnight hours. We can pray. Who do we pray for? Whoever comes to mind. I might have prayed for you this morning at 2:30. 

Our Father in heaven often places someone on our mind in such cases. Pray for that person then. Seek God’s highest and best for them. Ask him to meet their needs, to protect and defend them, and to give them clear direction. 

If no one immediately comes to mind, work through those closest to you. Pray Bible verses or passages you have committed to memory. 

Most often in such cases, I go back to sleep while praying. This is the best way I can think of to go to sleep. 

I may need a nap today since I had such a prayerful evening last night. I will pray myself to sleep then as well. How may I pray for you?

I will pray when I am awakened in the night.

Our Father, awaken me as often as you like that I may pray for those you play on my heart. Speak, LORD, for your servant is listening. Amen.

1 Chronicles 22:9-13 But you will have a son who will be a man of peace and rest, and I will give him rest from all his enemies on every side. His name will be Solomon, and I will grant Israel peace and quiet during his reign. He is the one who will build a house for my Name. He will be my son, and I will be his father. And I will establish the throne of his kingdom over Israel forever.’ “Now, my son, the Lord be with you, and may you have success and build the house of the Lord your God, as he said you would. May the Lord give you discretion and understanding when he puts you in command over Israel, so that you may keep the law of the Lord your God. Then you will have success if you are careful to observe the decrees and laws that the Lord gave Moses for Israel. Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or discouraged.”
