"Seven times a day I praise You, Because of Your righteous judgments." (Psalms 119:164)
"Rejoice always, pray without ceasing ..." (1 Th 5:16,17)
Evening and morning and at noon I will pray, and cry aloud, And He shall hear my voice. (Psalms 55:17)

The Book of Acts records the Apostles and believers praying and interceding at the three hours cycle for prayer: Acts 2:15; 3:1; 10:3-9; 10:30; 16:25; 27:35.
THE EIGHT PRAYER WATCHES - THREE HOUR CYCLES OF PRAYER
FIRST WATCH - 6:00 P.M. - 9:00 P.M.
The evening watch: is the foundation of the prayer watch cycles and is the beginning of the watches. It is contemplative and reflects on the day. This watch prays for alignment with the plans of God, seeks direction for tomorrow, renews covenants with God, and declares decrees to release blessings for the new day. Much of the occult activates in darkness. This watch prays to expose curses and plots before they manifest. Worshippers set the atmosphere for the night watches.
SECOND WATCH - 9:00 P.M. - 12:00 A.M.
This is a mobilization watch and takes point to pierce the darkness. Intercessors take the initiative to preempt the plans & strategies of the enemy. We pray to arrest and dismantle the diabolical assignments from the enemy. God prepares to deal with the enemies that are trying to derail his plans. Watchmen discern and declare.
THIRD WATCH - 12:00 A.M. - 3:00 A.M.
The Day-break watch: is the darkest and most demonic period. Witches, warlocks, satanists, and anti-christ spirits make their moves while people are entering deep sleep. Shields are down and they strike. Warriors employ their spiritual armor and weapons, boldly tearing down strongholds, dismantling satanic attacks, and attacking evil forces fearlessly in the power of God. This time is active with dreams. Warriors are vigilant and declare & strike with force.
FOURTH WATCH - 3:00 A.M. - 6:00 A.M.
The last night watch: sets the atmosphere as we transition from the dark of the night into morning. We reclaim territory which was hijacked by the enemy, we decree prosperity and favor, energy, health, and unity to set the day before it begins. This is the launching pad to lift off and ask the Lord to go before us. Worshippers and watchmen tirelessly activate with a mature faith.
FIFTH WATCH - 6:00 A.M. - 9:00 A.M.
Morning breaks with a burst: schedules the pattern of the day, set the tone, yields peace, tones the moods, gather momentum, and moves out to accomplish the plans and purposes of God that have been initiated. This is the appropriate time to resist and turn back the backlash of the enemy and evildoers. Praise, worship, decrees, are released by the Worshippers and Watchmen.
SIXTH WATCH - 9:00 A.M. - 12:00 P.M.
Time to operate: is the time of provision, receiving resources, collect assets, move-in assignments, perform duties. We pray for the energy, wisdom, resourcefulness, authority, and fortitude to stand, withstand, and take dominion. Warriors, Worshippers, and Watchmen pause and move in a spirit of unity and loyalty to the plans and purposes of God.
SEVENTH WATCH - 12:00 P.M.-3:00 P.M.
Enter into Rest: seek the Lord and you will find Him. Enter into the secret place of the Most High and take comfort from the heat of the day under the shadow of the Almighty. The enemy attempts to move, assuming his preys are wearing down, that their vigilance is dulled. We resist temptation and spring the snares and traps of the enemy. We sustain and will not be moved by fear, threats, surprises, or failures. We stand and then stand even stronger. The Body of Christ is linking arms to not waiver. Warriors, Worshippers, and Watchmen are renewed, refreshed, and restored.
EIGHT WATCH - 3:00 P.M. - 6:00 P.M.
Rejoice and seek closure: this is the watch to be sure that you are ending one day and entering into the next cycle of watches humbly, dead to self, confident that all things are working for good, no matter what, according to Gods purposes; declare authority to proceed without losing any gains and praise God for what He has done and rejoice in His favor. Warriors, Worshippers, and Watchmen are committed to settling in with ordered form, function, and fashion.
