Before outlining the three things you are to do when you wake up between 3am and 5 am, let us talk about the spiritual meaning of waking up between 3 am and 5 am. There are 8 prayer watches in a 24-hour day, with four for the day and four for the night, signifying that between 3 am and 5 am is a time for the chosen ones to pray. This prayer watch is referred to as the last prayer watch of the night, as well as the final stretch or race. There are people that are chosen that are called watchman, these people are seen as special individuals during their shifts, as they are believed to be chosen for divine visitation and supernatural encounters.

In Genesis 32:24 Jacob wrestled with the angel of the Lord between 3 am and 5 am, resulting in a life-changing encounter that impacted not only him but his future generations. This is a time of blessings, where individuals are called to rise and shine as the glory of the Lord shines upon them, as mentioned according to Isaiah 60:1. This hour is also known as the darkest hour where the enemy operates. During this hour Satan will release his hosts and strategies to hijack, launch attacks and disrupt the day. Only those chosen individuals can resist and fight back against these strategies. It is crucial for watchmen to fulfill their duties diligently. God has appointed individuals as watchman, and their spirits are aware of their identity in Christ Jesus, prompting them to awaken to their assignments. Your inner self is aware that you have a purpose and responsibility to fulfill.

Ezekiel 33:6 NLT mentions that when a watchman fails to perform their duty, God holds them responsible for lives lost, rather than the enemy. This emphasizes the importance of being diligent and vigilant in fulfilling one’s responsibilities. A watchman is essentially a gatekeeper with a much larger responsibility than is commonly perceived, and not paying attention will lead to disruptions in your life and impact those around you. Some individuals have been chosen to oversee and watch a generation.


  1. Try and remember your last dream before waking up.

God speaks through dreams; it is important to pay attention to your dreams upon waking up, as they provide valuable guidance for the day ahead. Job 33: 14-16 “says God speaks once yet twice but man perceive it not, in a dream when deep sleep fallen upon man, God opens the ears of man and seal their instruction for the day”. Meaning once you wake up you already have the instruction of the day hence it is important for you not to dismiss or take for granted your dreams.

2. Meditate

 If you do not remember your dreams you need to Hagah which means to meditate, do not go back to sleep. As you meditate your spirit can access knowledge and information that was planted by God in the past. The more you meditate you will start to notice positive changes in the lives of your loved ones and will be able to pray for them with more insight and understanding.

3. Make Declarations

The Bible emphasizes the importance of making declarations through prayer, as explained by Paul in 1 Thessalonians 5:17. The concept of prayer in this scripture goes beyond traditional understanding, suggesting a deeper meaning or intention behind the act of praying constantly. Here, the scripture mentions the word “pray” which is translated as proseuchomai. Proseuchomia is the act of making decrees or declarations. When you wake up during these hours start commanding your morning, command your day and do that by prophetically raising and making declaration to set the tone for the rest of the day.

    The wicked watch for good people.
    They want to kill them.
    The Lord will not take away his protection.
    He will not judge good people guilty. (psalms 37.32-33) amen selah
