PLANS, PURPOSE & PURSUIT _ EBook by Kenneth E Hagin

Several days before our annual Camp meeting in 1987, I had a visitation from

the Lord. As I relate that visitation, I share it with you in weakness and in reverence and in much trembling because of the awesomeness of God's power and His Presence. Paul said, "I was with you in weakness, and in fear ..." (1 Cor. 2:3). Of course, that didn't mean he was afraid like you would be afraid of a rattlesnake or a tornado. Paul meant that he had a godly fear, an awe, and reverence for God. It is with that same reverence that I now relate to you that awesome visitation I had from the Lord the week before our Campmeeting.

First, let me explain that I do most of my praying at night. Most of my life I have been a night person. I'm older now and have changed some, but I have always been more alert at midnight than at any other hour of the day. That is why I used to do all of my studying at night. Many times I have studied and read

all night long.

I got in the habit of praying during the night when I was bedfast in 1933 and 1934. I couldn't pray any other way except in bed, because I was bedfast—tied to that bed. I couldn't get up and walk. I remember one night in particular, I prayed all night long. I never slept at all; I just prayed. Several nights I prayed nearly all night long. Many nights I would pray an hour or two before I went to sleep.

I always looked forward to nighttime when everyone else was in bed and things got quiet, so that I could pray. In the daytime, someone always had to sit in the room with me. That went on for many months because they thought I was

going at any moment.
