Posted: September 17, 2011 in 8 PRAYER WATCHES


We have several key gates of time and seasons. The main gate of time, where

we begin to count the times of the day is the Prime (Greenwich) Meridian which

is also referred to as longitude 0. This is the portal that determines what time the

day begins and it is at 0. The day begins at midnight and midnight is first

measured from this portal. This was determined by the scientists in the days of

the Roman Empire. From that portal, the longitudes have a 3 hour distance

between them therefore the longitude that passes thru east Africa i.e. Kenya

Uganda and Tanzania is about 3 hours from longitude 0.


The main gate of the season is the latitude 0 or the equator which also passes

through Kenya and Uganda and Congo. This is the most significant gate of the

seasons. The gates of the 4 seasons (summer, winter, spring & autumn) are

determined by the position of the sun in relation to the equator.



1)   When the sun is directly overhead the equator on 21st March that is the

beginning of spring season in the northern hemisphere and is also the vernal

equinox but beginning of winter in the southern hemisphere. It is called a gate of

the season of spring and spiritually this is a very significant time of intense 

spiritual activity.  People who are active in the kingdom of darkness know these

times and seasons and so perform their highest activities during these times and



2)   Then when the sun is overhead the tropic of cancer on 21 June it is called

the summer solstice or high summer. In the north hemisphere but it is high winter

in southern hemisphere. When it crosses again the equator and is going to the

south in 21 September that is the gate of fall/winter season or the autumnal

equinox and when it is overhead the tropic of Capricorn this is also a very

strategic time and it is the winter solstice on 21 December. These are very very

strategic times of intense spiritual warfare and intercession.


During these seasons, including occurrences like the eclipses, new moon and full

moons, and other astronomically significant times, there is need for very strong

intercession. However, many Christians are very ignorant of these facts and think

that only the Satanists and people in kingdom of darkness like witches and occult

people should tamper with issue of the sun moon and stars which is in the

satanic science of astrology. Christians should NEVER tamper with this false

science.  However, God has given the proper study of the heavenly bodies called

Astronomy which is a legal and biblically proper science of the study of the

heavenly bodies and how they function etc. As a Christian you ought to release

yourself from any theological prison and ask the Holy Spirit to give you guidance

on how to understand and deal with the heavenlies biblically.



Why is it important to pray at the gates of time and seasons?  

• It is possible for people to run away from calendars and change their

calendars. For example the Moslems have their own calendar, the Chinese

have their own, the Ethiopians have their own calendar and the Jewish

people have their own calendar, but no one can change the season and no

one can change the time. Everyone is going according to the time and season

• The times and seasons are ports of entry and exit and we need to possess

these gates which hell has a hold of, so that the church and kingdom of God

may prevail. Gates must be possessed first before the kingdom can prevail.

(Matthew 16:19).

• Those in charge of the gates are able to change environments.

• If you are able to possess gates of a place you should be able to change

environment and Spiritual equation over the place.

• If you are able to possess gates you are able to dictate what happens in the

place and monitor what goes in and comes out of that gate

• If you are able to possess gates you will be able to change the law and

rulings over the place.

• If you are able to possess gates you are able to change the environmental



Why should we observe prayer at these times and seasons?

yet the Bible so clearly says in Colossians 2:16 – let no man therefore judge you 

in meat or in drink or in respect of a holy day or the new moon or of the Sabbath 



• First we need to understand that pattern of activity in the spiritual realm does

not change, it goes on and affects the earth whether we are aware of it or not

and whether we believe in it or not. Our knowledge and dealings with the

spiritual realm is what changes the dynamics.

• Because in V17 we are told these observances are a shadow of things to 

come. In the Old Testament the people made observances of times and

seasons and gathered properly and had rituals; we know that the Old

Testament is a shadow of  what we have in the New Testament. At such

times, there is heightened activity in the dark realm and therefore it is a time

of heightened intercession and prophetic action in the kingdom of God.

Why are we so strategically placed to pray for the times and seasons with 



• God chose us to be in the very gateway of these.  Uganda and Kenya lie

along the equator which happens to be the gate of time for the seasons and

as a people who belong to these lands, we can proclaim a new season in the

heavenly realm and along all the lay lines of the earth. We are also

strategically situated in Africa which is the only continent of the earth where

all the major lay lines pass through i.e. the Prime Meridian or longitude Zero,

the Equator – latitude Zero and the tropics of cancer and Capricorn. As

Africans we have the legal right to declare the ushering in of new times and

seasons  throughout the world.

• East Africans are strategically positioned in the nation which is the cradle of

the River Nile which is a major place of spiritual activity in the dark realm

since the times of the ancient Egyptian dynasties and we can break the spirit

of Egypt from its very source, the Lake Victoria.


Is there a pattern for praying at the watches? Yes 

• In Genesis 1 we see a pattern of how the day is considered after each step of

creation …and evening and morning were first day… and evening and 

morning were second day, 14 and evening and morning were ….. etc And the

evening and the morning.


Why that order?

Whatever happens during the day is determined to a large extent to what is done

during the night. The evening is the foundation of the night and the beginning of

the watches i.e. 6 pm – 9 pm. According to the people in kingdom of darkness,

they begin their active witchcraft at midnight. If we begin to make strategic prayer

at the foundation of the day which is 6 pm, then we are six hours ahead of any

witches, enchanters, magicians and diviners and we can set the agenda of how

activities will take place.


• If you want to heal the river, according to 2 king 2:21, 22 when Elisha had to

heal the waters of the river in Jericho, he had to go to the source, to the

spring to pour in salt and healed the entire river. If we want to heal the

disease of the nations we should not be going to the middle of the stream to

fight the devil, let us go to the source, the beginning – at the first watch

according to the pattern



The following is a sample prayer direction for praying at watches. Every time you

come in prayer God will give you different direction and unction and scripture to

pray through. There is no permanent pattern. However one important thing to

note is that you should focus more on praying scripture into that gate. You do not

have to make long prayers.


General prayers to be prayed before the prayer point for the watch .  

Pray for say 20 – 30 minutes over the gate of time i.e. starting at least 10-15

minutes before the hour and then 10 -15 minutes after the hour.

Worship and praise God, read aloud and proclaim Psalm 148

commanding everything in creation to praise God in your life, work , family

and your community and nation

Bring personal repentance and on behalf of family, ministry workplace

nation etc Psalms 51 Daniel 9.3-19 1 John 1.5 -10 and such like scripture.

Declare that everything about this season e.g. of summer, the

fruitfulness, beauty and joy of life and happiness of this season the

restiveness of the season will reflect in your life, family, work, ministry and

nation. Pray prophetically that there will be a time of refreshing coming

upon you in this season in your work, family ministry and nation.

Prophetically proclaim the times of refreshing coming into  the areas of

o Government and policy making

o Media and entertainment including print, electronic,

o Drama and theatre, holiday and leisure activities.

o Family

o The priesthood of God

o Stewardship and finances

o Welfare and justice

o Education

o The belief system and mindset of the people toward God and His

and salvation.  Have a session of praise and worship exalting God and

commanding all creation to praise Him. Read aloud Psalm 148.



3. 12 – 3 am 3rd watch of the night. Pray from 11:45-12.15a m. This is the

major time, witches do sacrifices and covenants.  Pray that the works of

their hands, the incantations, prognostications and astrological readings

will fall and come to nothing. Proclaim Isaiah 4424-28. Read Isaiah 19.1 and

ask the Lord to come on a swift cloud and pull down, uproot, destroy all

satanic altars raised in the heavenlies against your life, family ministry

by the blood of Jesus and every arrangement that has been made by the

astrologers and witches, in this new season will be  rendered powerless.

  1. At this time it looks like WordPress is the best blogging platform available right now.

    (from what I’ve read) Is that what you are using on your blog?

  2. First of all I want to say wonderful blog! I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your mind prior to writing. I have had a tough time clearing my mind in getting my ideas out there. I do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or hints? Thank you!

    • Thank you for visiting! I have worked on focusing my mind and having dominion over the waywardness of it. The flesh is truly fighting with the spirit man – but we can gain the advantage by the Word and in prayer. My confessions are a great help – I confess things that build my inner man and I use the Word as my foundation for every confession! SALVATION is about our being whole in body, soul and spirit. This is the Father’s desire for all of His children, His redeemed remnant. The Blood of Jesus is a great weapon against the enemy and our flesh. I war for my possessions and my peace in Christ often. It gets easier with practice – but soon the body responds to the Word of God and will align with my will to obey the Lord and I make it a point to pray and intercede often for others to win and wage a war for their own lives in this area. God is Faithful to help – we need only to ask Him. Sometimes, I get more information and inspiration when I go on prayer vigils (days, months at a time). My favorite times of great intercession are during the Jewish HOLY-days! I find these times are open heavens and God is particularly attentive to hearing our prayers as these are set apart times entirely given to His people. Satan is aware of this and will gather his evil children to abort our prayers. We must outlast and beat them to the gate of these “open seasons” of prayers!!! They are pivotal to our advancement in the spiritual realm, especially relating to our destinies. I hope this helps you to center your being with God and ask for direction when you are ready to write the books/inspirations that are longing to come out of your being. Don’t negate sitting down to write at times of great attacks and hinderances – these have been especially rewarding times for me to press through and write anyway. I am surprised by the richness that flows in the darkest of times!!! God bless you and please do visit me again. Let’s keep in touch. Let me know how you are doing!! Love and kingdom blessings.
