TOPIC: Sleeping On Duty (I) (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Devotional 26 September 2021)
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Luke 1, John 1:1-14
FIRE SCRIPTURE: Matthew 26:40-46
40 And he cometh unto the disciples, and findeth them asleep, and saith unto Peter, What, could ye not watch with me one hour?
41 Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.
42 He went away again the second time, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if this cup may not pass away from me, except I drink it, thy will be done.
43 And he came and found them asleep again: for their eyes were heavy.
44 And he left them, and went away again, and prayed the third time, saying the same words.
45 Then cometh he to his disciples, and saith unto them, Sleep on now, and take your rest: behold, the hour is at hand, and the Son of man is betrayed into the hands of sinners.
46 Rise, let us be going: behold, he is at hand that doth betray me.
MEMORY VERSE: “Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light.” – Ephesians 5:14
If you don’t have control over your sleeping attitude, you will likely sleep off the best moments of your life and become an easy prey to the enemy of your destiny fulfilment.
PRAISE WORSHIP: Take a worship song as led by the Holy Spirit
PROPHETIC WORD FOR TODAY:
I DECREE THAT YOU SHALL NOT SLEEP IN THE WRONG PLACE AND AT THE WRONG TIME, IN THE NAME OF JESUS.
Sleep is supposed to be a restful exercise. When done accurately, it should contribute to our physical and mental wellness. During our sleep, we have dreams that could serve as our destiny roadmap.

Sometimes, however, sleep is regarded as a mini death, all because we are inactive physically. It is not a surprise therefore to see that the devil wants to put men into a sleeping state, a situation where such persons are physically incapacitated and perhaps spiritually inactive. But as a child of God, you’re supposed to be alert and your spirit man active, even when you’re asleep. As a result, you will be in a spiritual condition where you can fight back and defend yourself against every invasion of dark powers. Our adversary, the devil is seeking our unguarded hour, the hour of sleep. I pray for you again, you shall not sleep the sleep of death, in Jesus’ name.
Sleep is common to all men, irrespective of their position, status, gender or age. All men sleep! But Christians should not be careless with sleeping, especially the hour of the night, which is the dark hour, when evil thrives. We should be alert and spiritually connected to the Holy Spirit, our source of strength and power. Unfortunately, even the disciples of Jesus, as stated in our Fire Scripture today, were found sleeping when they should be watchful. What a tragedy! Sleeping on duty? Jesus was facing a serious challenge; He needed all the encouragement and assistance in prayer, but none was coming. He came to them thrice and met them sleeping. He concluded that their spirit was willing but the flesh is weak. That is the point: you must not allow the flesh to subdue your spirit.
Decide and determine to pray, even when your flesh is unwilling. If allowed to have its way, the undisciplined flesh will become a hindrance to your spiritual liberty and growth. Say NO to that strange desire to sleep or slumber at the place of prayer or warfare. Discipline your flesh. Give it no room. Let it not block your spiritual blessings. Sleep can turn you to the enemy’s trash-can if you are spiritually careless.
Watch and pray! That is the divine counsel. Failure to do so may lead to trouble. Heed the voice of the Master; awake from your slumber and be on fire for God!
- O God my Father, deliver me from every purposeless sleep, in the name of Jesus.
- I shall not be a sleeper on the mountain of power, in the name of Jesus.
- Every useless sleep assigned to drain away my spiritual strength, clear away by fire, in the name of Jesus.
- Satanic slumber, I am not your candidate, die, in the name of Jesus.
- I receive divine alertness, in the name of Jesus.
- My inner man, receive fire and become fire, in the name of Jesus.
- You spirit of the bed, enticing me to sleep at the time of prayer, I overcome you by the power in the blood of Jesus, in the name of Jesus.
