The Last Watch Before A New Day

We’re nearing that time of year where the reality of only a couple short months stand between the end of another year and the dawn of a new one. I’ve been studying the prayer watches in the both the Old and New Testaments. The Last Watch was the darkest time between 3-6 AM and a time when most intercessors or watchmen were the most weary. While humans were weary, God was not. This Last Watch was historically a time when great victory was set in place or received or finalized at daybreak. The Last Watch was when God discomfited the Egyptians by driving them into the Red Sea so that at daybreak their chariot wheels were clogged, chaos ensued, and the walls of the Red Sea came crashing down, defeating His peoples’ enemies. Jesus walked on the water during the Last Watch and calmed the raging storm quite possibly near daybreak. Generally speaking, the Last Watch is a time when God sets up an escape from our enemies so we attain victory at the break of dawn.

While all of us in Christ already fight from a place of victory because of Jesus’ work, here at Break of Dawn we’re helping many who are in need of Last Watch intercessors and the hope, healing, and freedom of break of dawn victory that Jesus brings. Refresh your memory of the teen girls and women God has us serving at  ISAIAH 58

Joy has experienced many health and financial setbacks since we last introduced her last spring. Zita was the nineteen-year-old who found herself couch-hopping around the state when we were alerted of her situation. She is currently pregnant and is being threatened with an eviction without any other housing leads. Then there are the single moms and their children God continues to bring us who face various challenges. First and foremost, lift each of them up in prayers. Pray for provision, safety, and break of dawn miracles. Then, if you feel led to donate on their behalf, go to DONATE and select the respective fund. You can give anytime, however, remember Giving Tuesday is November 29th and End-of-the-Year Giving envelopes must be postmarked by December 31st.

Break of Dawn Pairs Up with Spooner Teens for Life to Hold a Donation Drive

Details below

“Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen:
to loose the chains of injustice
    and untie the cords of the yoke,
to set the oppressed free
    and break every yoke?
Is it not to share your food with the hungry
    and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter—
when you see the naked, to clothe them,
    and not to turn away from your own flesh and blood?
Then your light will break forth like the dawn,
    and your healing will quickly appear;
then your righteousness will go before you,
    and the glory of the Lord will be your rear guard.” Is58
