Fifth Watch 

(The Early Morning Watch from 6:00 A.M. – 9:00 A.M.)


Time that God strengthens Christians (Acts 2:15; Psalm 2:7-9)

The spiritual significance of sunrise is having Jesus Christ, the King of kings and the Lord of lords, rise over us (Malachi 4:2). During this watch, pray for such issues as healing in your body, relationships, family, government, and the economy.


Time for the Holy Spirit to prepare us for service (2 Corinthians 9:30; Ephesians 4:12)

Acts 2:15 says it was the “third hour of the day” (or 9:00 A.M.) when the Holy Spirit descended in the Upper Room on the day of Pentecost to equip the 120 disciples for service. Regular work schedules usually begin between the hours of 6:00 A.M. and 9:00 A.M. As you step out, ask the Holy Spirit to equip you for the day.


Prayer Decrees for this watch:

Father, in the name of Jesus…

  • This day I entrust my work to You and I know my plans will work out well because I can do everything You ask me to with the help of Christ who gives me the strength and power. (Philippians 4:13; Proverbs 16:3)
  • Because I reverence Your Name, Your goodness shines on me like the sun with healing in its rays. (Malachi 4:2)
  • I praise You and never forget how kind You are to me! You forgive all my sins and heal all my sicknesses. You save me from the grave and surround me with loving-kindness and tender mercies. (Psalm 103:2- 4)
  • I plead the Blood of Jesus over myself. I cover my body, mind, emotions and spirit with the Blood of Jesus. I plead the Blood of Jesus against physical, mental and emotional abuse. I plead the Blood of Jesus against any diseases, viruses or illnesses that would try to overtake me.  I release the healing virtue of Jesus Christ into my body. I pray against the root of every attack upon my health. Jehovah-Rophe healed me and keeps me in perfect health all the days of my life. I plead the Blood of Jesus against calamities, catastrophes and any hidden dangers that would try to come against me. Through the Blood of Jesus, I have been redeemed out of the hands of the devil.
