21 Breaking of the Day Watch Prayer Focus
The “Breaking of the Day” Watch began at midnight and continued until three in the morning. This prayer focus will pick up with the midnight watch and continue on through the turning of the morning.
There are two words used in the Old Testament for “midnight.” The literal meaning of both is “the middle of the night.” One is used only three times and is always translated as “midnight.” The other is used 120 times and means the middle, midpoint or half of something. When used to refer to “half of the night” it is translated “midnight.”
The first word, “Chatsoth,” [ חֲצֹת ] is twice used of the righteous judgment of God being carried out at midnight and used once of the psalmist rising to praise God for His righteous judgments at midnight. The second word is also translated as “midnight” three times and has to do with the righteous judgments of God.
There are two words translated as “midnight” in the New Testament. Like the words used in the Old Testament, one of these words means the middle or midpoint of something and the other is a specific term for midnight.
Read Exodus 11:1-7. The LORD had repeatedly said for Pharaoh to let the people of Israel go, but Pharaoh had refused. There came a time when God pronounced His righteous judgment against Pharaoh. Notice in verse 7 that in judgment God makes a distinction between Egypt and Israel.
Thank Him that He always gives a warning and offers a way of escape from the judgment He pronounces.
Death of the Firstborn Announced
“And the Lord said to Moses, “I will bring one more plague on Pharaoh and on Egypt. Afterward he will let you go from here. When he lets you go, he will surely drive you out of here altogether. Speak now in the hearing of the people, and let every man ask from his neighbor and every woman from her neighbor, articles of silver and articles of gold.” And the Lord gave the people favor in the sight of the Egyptians. Moreover the man Moses was very great in the land of Egypt, in the sight of Pharaoh’s servants and in the sight of the people.
Then Moses said, “Thus says the Lord: ‘About midnight I will go out into the midst of Egypt; and all the firstborn in the land of Egypt shall die, from the firstborn of Pharaoh who sits on his throne, even to the firstborn of the female servant who is behind the handmill, and all the firstborn of the animals. Then there shall be a great cry throughout all the land of Egypt, such as was not like it before, nor shall be like it again. But against none of the children of Israel shall a dog move its tongue, against man or beast, that you may know that the Lord does make a difference between the Egyptians and Israel,”Exodus 11:1-7 (NKJV).
