Eze 33:7 Son of man, I have made you a watchman for the house of Israel; so hear the word I speak and give them warning from me.

Ps 127:1bunless the Lord watches over a city, the watchmen stand guard in vain

Ps 121:3b-4 … He who watches over you will not slumber; indeed, he who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep.

God places his children in the position of watchmen. We are to cry, alert others or even call upon the heavens to stand by our side and give us victory. We are made in the image of our father – He is the master watchman. He never slumbers. He never sleeps. He is the best to watch over us. Likewise He has called us to work with him in the places he places us.

What do you expect to be the characteristic of the watchmen He expects us to be. I see someone who is spiritually alert, a person who does not succumb to spiritual slumber. I see someone who is brave standing in a vantage position, with a trumpet in his hands and feet well shod to in readiness to serve his master. I see someone with access to a higher being for support. I imagine someone who is fearless and who can’t compromise. I expect him/her to have wisdom, knowledge, understanding and discernment. I expect this watchmen to daily draw his strength from the Lord in an intimate fellowship. He/she should differentiate voices and learn to hear from the Holy Spirit, and be fully led by him. I believe therefore the prayers we should pray should have some semblance with the ones below:

  •  Lord Jesus, thank you for choosing me to be a watchman among your people
  • I look unto you for help, for unless you watch over me, or watch over my city, my work will be in vain
  • Open my eyes to see, my ears to hear, and melt everything that hinders serving you in my life
  • Make me sensitive to your voice and your direction
  • Let fear depart from my life from this moment in Jesus name. I receive a spirit of courage in Jesus name
  • I refuse to compromise in Jesus name
  • Give me wisdom, understanding, knowledge and discernment o my Lord Jesus
  • I daily draw my strength from you
  • Arise in my life my God, and let every lying spirit in my life depart in Jesus name
  • Keep me awake spiritually by your power O my God
  • May your Holy Spirit lead and guide me always
  • In Jesus name, AMEN
