Quite a few people have wondered why I insist on praying at the midnight hour.
Since the concept is clearly explained in Prayer Cookbook for Busy People, I hardly answer the question anymore.
But for Rosalind, even after reading the book, she was still not sure.
So she did something I encourage you to do anytime you are in doubt about any teaching.
Here’s what she did:
“This email is in regards to praying between midnight and 3 a.m. I am presently reading Elisha Goodman’s “Prayer Cookbook for Busy People.”
Although the Lord has woken me many times to pray during those hours, I doubted Elisha Goodman’s statement and wanted to do the 10 steps during those hours.
So before going to bed my prayer included this statement “Lord if what Elisha is saying is true, I want you to wake me during those hours so I can do the 10 steps.
I want you to wake me up in such a way that I know it is you. When you wake me up, I want to be alert. I don’t want to just wake up and assume that it’s you.
I want you to wake me up in such a way and I know you are confirming Elisha’s statement.”
After praying, I went to bed.
Well … the alarm clock rung so loud at midnight that I sat up in bed immediately.
It didn’t ring at 1201, it rung at midnight!
My sight is not the best when i wake up, but when I woke up and looked at the clock, I could clearly read it – 1200.
It rung so loud that it woke my son up who sleeps down the hall. You see, the alarm clock was not set and is never set around that hour.
It’s actually my husband’s clock and he has been gone five days. In addition, he sets his alarm for 5:15 a.m. Needless to say, the Lord gave me what I asked for.
As I said, I am presently reading the book. After completing the book, I will fast and go through the program in its entirety and know that our God is going to move in a mighty and powerful way.
Please convey my thanks to Elisha. Peace and Blessings.”

What’s the morale of the story? When in doubt, go ask the LORD.
He will answer, if you know how to ask.
