midnight prayer

Old clock about to strike midnight

Old clock about to strike midnight

At This Midnight Hour
(a contemporary rhyming prayer)


Midnight is sometimes so empty,
A dark and lonely time.
Yet as the clock now reaches twelve,
I feel your life in mine.
I think of your twelve disciples,
The chosen number by you.
and follow in their footsteps
Because I love you too.

And when the clock struck twelve
We know that Peter felt too scared
To say that he was your friend Lord,
But you understood his cares.
And now, just as Peter realised
Your love remains the same,
I know I sometimes turn from you,
But you always call my name.

So at this midnight hour
I feel not darkness, but such light
I know that I am not alone,
But always in your sight.
I follow in your footsteps,
You are my daily bread.
Your goodness never turns from me
For my life is heaven led.

Midnight Prayer for Breakthrough

(suitable for a job or marriage situation)

Dear Father,

I can not sleep. please help me to bring my troubles to you.
You are the redeemer, who turns darkness to light, sadness to joy, death to life. Please cover me with your truth, comfort me with your love and let my heart be at peace to rest.
I dwell with you.


Powerful Midnight Prayer


You know my worries and care for my troubles. So I give these heavy concerns to you. I lay these situations at your feet.
The empty cross is a place of rest, where I can reflect upon your resurrection and the moment when love overcame. Thank you that your love in me can transform the landscape of my life. I walk with peace into the new day, and put my hope in you. Nothing is outside of your redeeming love, might I rest now in the knowledge that you will light my path and guide my life.

In this season of giving, it is hard sometimes to cut through the commercial trappings, rise above the “perfect Christmas” expectations and truly connect with loved ones to give a gift that is really yearned for. We (like most creatives) sometimes find it hard to “push” our own work, to believe that our music can Read More

A Beautiful Prayer

Beautiful Tree Branches hanging low down
