That 3AM Moment

Anyone who wakes at 3 am understands what that moment is all about.

What the silence brings.

 

I recall the many nights then.

I’d stand by the window and stare into darkness.

 

I was told that’s when the gates of heaven are open.

So ask, and so shall you receive.

 

It’s God time and he hears clearly.

So do your best and ask.

 

For many dark nights at dawn

I woke to the stillness of things around me.

 

Gently whispering to the breeze.

One’s deepest thoughts and desires that life could bring.

 

Suddenly I find myself awake once again this same moment then

Only this time I hear myself asking slightly different.

 

I know you hear me dear Angels in Heaven.

And I know God is present in all things.

 

So dare shall I ask in utmost silence.

Please, grant my desire that my fragile heart holds dear.

You are so right, Rina: Anyone who wakes at 3 am understands what that moment is all about

As the Psalmist says: In the night, my inmost heart instructs me... I've found this to be profoundly so. Daylight has its own momentum, its own agenda, and brings a welter of impressions and distractions. The true dynamics of the heart usually aren't easy to uncover, though feelings may run high.

I have found it to be a question of listening, rather than asking.

Praying that you will find your way safely.
