    ALL NIGHT PRAYER
 
FELLOWSHIP_  MINNEAPOLIS.MN  SUNDAY_  56-0212,  E-16    May sinners just pour to the altar, be saved, and those who are without the Holy Spirit be filled, that all night prayer meetings will be in homes, and people being so hungry till meals will be set aside. And God give us an old fashion revival just once more before we see the coming of the Lord Jesus. Grant it, Lord, for we ask it in Jesus' Name, Thy Son. Amen.
 
GOD.KEEPS.HIS.WORD_  JEFF.IN  SUNDAY_  57-0407M,  E-44    Watch our churches a few years ago when they had the old fashion holiness churches, when they stood for God and righteous, when women dressed and act like ladies, when men dressed and act like men, when people went to church on Sunday morning, when they had all night prayer meetings; when they had the old fashion type, they had real revival. God blessed.
He cut off every enemy before them. They were journeying on, but when the wedge of Achan got in the camp, there was nothing left but destruction. We're on our... we're... God on our road... God keeps His Word.
 
DOOR.OF.THE.DOOR_  NEWARK.NJ  THURSDAY_  57-1212,  E-19    Now, notice, this is not personally to anyone, just as the Holy Spirit will point it to you. But notice, now, it's just the Word. The people today, they don't want to open up their heart to those things, they don't want to believe it. Oh, they try to apply somewhere else or to somebody else, knowing not, that it's to you.
You say, "Well, now, wait a minute, Brother Branham, I spoke in tongues ten years ago." That was very fine. But what is Christ to you today? Are you still seeing His marvelous powers? Does He still bring the same thrill, does something go through you when you see His mighty hand begin to move and sinners be converted. Does it bring you to all night prayer? Does it bring you to fasting? Does it send you to the altar quickly to work with someone, to instruct them how to come through to the Holy Spirit? Does it warm your heart to go into the neighborhood and seek out the lost? Do you speak to the milkman, to the meter-man, to the man on the street? Those things they going to accompany that experience that you received long ago. Something's happened. You pushed Him out the door. God wants the heart.
 
BE.CERTAIN.OF.GOD_  LA.CA  SUNDAY_  59-0412A,  E-17    So finally, one day she went to the meal barrel and there was just one handful of meal left. She goes over to the cruse to see how much oil, and just about a good tablespoonful. That stood between her and death. I suppose that night there was an all night prayer meeting. Isn't it strange how God lets us get right down to the end of the road? No doubt but she checked up. Said, "Lord God (something like this), I've served You. I've done all that I know how to do. I've met Your requirements. And here I've got one handful of meal and a spoonful of oil between death for my child and myself." All night long she must've prayed.
 
EL.SHADDAI_  LA.CA  THURSDAY_  59-0416,  E-66    Oh, I feel It. I'm tired; I'm weary; I'm wore out. Wife said, "You can't go another time, Honey, you're--you're about to fall. You've ministered all day; you've been week after week. You look awful. You're so nervous, you can't sit at the table. You--you're on the middle of the floor at night with a pillow in your arms, praying for the--for it." Said, "You're so nervous, stay home, honey, before you die."
I said, "But, sweetheart, them precious souls out there to which Christ died for, I must do it." And that's why I'm here. I love you. God, reveal that to the people is my prayer. I--I'm not here to be seen; I'm here because I love you and I'm trying to shake you with the Gospel out of that formal, modey condition that the people are in.
Get back to God: all night prayer meeting, revival in your home, revival in your soul. Get back to believing God, acting on His Word, taking His Word and believing It. You're the seed of Abraham. God's give you the promise. God showed you the sign. Watch that Spirit.
 
AS.I.THOUGHT.ON.MY.WAY_  CHICAGO.IL  WEDNESDAY_  59-0610
  E-31    It was the prophet Jacob who had done wrong and had lied to his blind daddy, because of a birthright. And one day his heart begin to yearn to go back to the homeland. And he must've thought all that time, it was covered up; but when he begin to get near home, he heard that Esau was coming out to meet him. Then he thought of his deceiving ways. And he prayed all night on the other side of the river. When he thought how he had deceived his brother, it called him to all night prayer. God knows that's what the Church needs.
 
AS.I.THOUGHT.ON.MY.WAY_  CHICAGO.IL  WEDNESDAY_  59-0610
  E-32    I remember when the church used to call for a all night prayer meeting. And when the sermon went forth, there wasn't a dry eye the church. Everybody wept and cried out before God. And today it seems like it's so loose, that people just go on living any way they want to, and still say they are Christians. I wonder if we're not nearing home. We'd better think on our ways and turn our feet to His testimonies.
 
IT.IS.I.BE.NOT.AFRAID_  TULSA.OK  TUESDAY_  60-0329
  E-19    O God, is my prayer, wake up the church again to old fashion, all night prayer meetings. Wake the people up to a--a spiritual atmosphere. Oh, it--it takes that to bring children into the Kingdom. It takes the atmosphere.
Right this night while we're sitting here, if this right atmosphere would take place, this entire group would be refilled with the Holy Ghost, every sick person would be made well. It's the atmosphere that does it.
 
FROM.THAT.TIME_  TULSA.OK  THURSDAY_  60-0331
  E-38    What you need here in Oklahoma, as I see here, is just a good old fashion revival. You've got the material to do it with. You got great men here in the city. Who is a greater man on the field than Tommy Osborn, Brother Oral Roberts? Some of the greatest men in the world has, is anchored right here in your city. This ought to be the most spiritual place there is in the world, right here where those great "Abundant Life," and--and the "Faith Digest," and those big papers, and things just spread out all over the world, everywhere. This ought to be a, just a--just like a honeycomb where the bees fly in and out, bringing in honey. It should be.
What Oklahoma needs here now, is a good old fashion revival, a breaking up. Our churches has become too much to the world, too starchy, too intellectual, too much of--too much, just style. We need the old fashion Pentecostal Gospel and the old Pentecostal revivals, all night prayer meetings, and... That's what we need, friends. Get back to God, where the church can receive its blessings and receive its...
 
HAVING.CONFERENCES_  CHATAUQUA.OH  WEDNESDAY_  60-0608
  E-13    And we pray tonight, Father God, that You'll put such a hunger in the hearts of the people until all up-and-down these river banks will be prayer meetings going on: Men seeking God in a desperate condition, knowing that they must find rest to their souls and receive the Holy Spirit, or here they'll plunge someday into eternity without knowing You. O God, be merciful to us. And as we see our churches and our own Full Gospel groups begin to cool down, and seem like there's no great crying for lost souls; there's no more of that sincere all night prayer and meditation in the Word. And it seems like that we have just drifted, Lord. Forgive us, O God, and let us renew ourselves tonight afresh in the Holy Spirit.
 
AS.THE.EAGLE.STIRRETH.HER.NEST_  YAKIMA.WA  THURSDAY_  60-0804,  E-90    O God, never let nothing happen to... If I can't serve You, take me now. Let me go now. What a joy it is, and a privilege to serve God. Give it to these young people, Lord. They've got an awful battle. Look at them. Look at what they got. Look at their television: rotten and polluted. Look at the nation they're coming up in here: politics rotten to the core, the antichrist arising in seat and power. The world, American people, don't know what a struggle is. They don't know how to do without. They never had to miss a meal. O God, just look. Glamour and Hollywood, and it's even got into assembly line religion in the churches, and streamlined Hollywood. No more old fashion all night prayer meetings, and agonizing, and praying, and having fellowship around the things of God, No more praying through.
 
EPHESIAN.CHURCH.AGE_  JEFF.IN  ROJC 131-183  MONDAY_  60-1205,  140    If God had that against this church, He's got it against that one too. "Because you left your first love, I've got it against you. I have something against you; that's My complaint. You once had a great time, but you let the world begin to creep in, and you got to acting a little formal. You still holding My Name, and you're still doing the things that's right, and you got a lot of patience and so forth, and you labor, and you're like a mule, you just labor and work." My, my, my.
See, you've left grace and faith and power to swap it for labor and works. "Well, I tell you, Brother Branham, I--I help every widow woman I can." Well, that's a good thing; I commend you for that. But where's that first love you once had? See? Where's that joy you used to have? As David once cried, "O Lord, restore to me the joy of my salvation." Where is them all night prayer meetings and tears on your cheeks? My, goodness, the Bible's even dusty and got cobwebs on It. You read old love stories, and news things, and things that oughtn't to even be allowed to be published and put out for a--a trash can, and we Pentecostal people pick them up and just loft over them like a bunch of flies on a garbage can. That's right.
Oh, mercy. What we need is: Back to our first love. Back to Pentecost. I'd better get away from there. All right. But you understand, "Leaving that first love..."
 
CHURCH.CHOOSING.LAW.FOR.GRACE_  MIDDLETOWN.OH  THURSDAY_  61-0316,  E-25    Your job will never get done when you tell people the Lord is a coming, and to evangelize, and to go out on the streets and testify, and do something for God. How can you do it when they're dead? You got to get somewhere where there's life. A man's got to be born again. The church has got to come back to the principles of Christ, back to new birth, back to the Holy Ghost, back to all night prayer meetings, places on fire for God...?...
 
GETTING.IN.THE.SPIRIT_  CHICAGO.IL  FRIDAY_  61-0428
  E-24    Search out and find out whether God's in it or not. Jesus said, "These signs shall follow them that believe." Signs, wonders, miracles... And when we see our churches cooling down and those things not happening... You have to wait till you get some special evangelist into town or something, then beat a few tambourines and work up a little emotion. God isn't in that. No.
I'll tell you what we need today is a back to the old Bible again. Back to the old fashion Pentecostal teaching of the Bible. Back to the Holy Ghost. Back to the power of God. Back to all night prayer meetings. Where they're hungering and thirsting for God. That's what we need tonight in our churches, in our--to bring that into our systems.

GETTING.IN.THE.SPIRIT_  CHICAGO.IL  FRIDAY_  61-0428
  E-28    You know, everybody wants a hilltop experience, and they never want to take the valley. Everybody, the Pentecostal church too. Every night, if you're not shouting, dancing, jumping up-and-down, speaking in tongues, and running around over the floor or something another, you didn't have any kind of a meeting.
Well, you know it's all right to be on the mountain top, that's good. But let me tell you; you--you're fruits will freeze up there at night. And when the cold spell comes, you'll lose all your fruit. That's what's happened now. We put too much on mountain-top experiences of dancing, and shaking, and jumping around, instead of all night prayer meetings, down in the valley of decision. Where you have to come down there and meet God and really pour out your life until something takes place.
We have let the--we've growed fruits up there, but the freeze kills it. That's right. Every time it comes a little cool spell, you've got nothing to rest upon. When the emotion or the--dies down, then the shout's all gone, the noises cease, then they're--where you at? The temptation comes along, then you can't take it.
 
GOD'S.PROVIDED.WAY_  GRANDE.PRAIRIE.AB  TUESDAY_  61-0516M,  E-15    Therefore, we weigh out our prayer to see if we're going to ask anything amiss, to see if we should be any wrong objective to our coming here, or our asking, or the motive we would have in asking for such things. So we pray, God, that You search our hearts. For we stand in Thy holy Presence in this tabernacle, knowing that we are eternity bound people, with our heads bowed to the dust from whence Thou hast taken us.
And we are solemnly trusting that someday You'll send Jesus. And we'll be lifted from this dust body to a body that's made like unto His own glorious body, where there will be no more praying for the sick. There will be no all night prayer meetings for the lost, but the redeemed shall be in the City and shall walk in the Light thereof forever.
 
PERSEVERANCE_  CHICAGO.IL  SUNDAY_  62-0520,  E-14    I was thinking: at the beginning of the history of our nation, when a handful of soldiers on a cold winter day, and the odds all against them, them was American soldiers. When I read the history of our nation, it makes me cry in my heart. But their leader was a Christian. The Delaware was froze over, ice gorges in it. And I understand about half of the American soldiers didn't even have shoes on their feet, with stuff wrapped around their feet; them was American soldiers. And the--the obstacle was great; the odds was against them.
But yet, after all night prayer until he was wet up to his hips in snow where he had knelt and prayed, their great leader become perseverant, for he had assurance from God that he could cross that Delaware anyhow. He was perseverant, although three bullet holes was placed through his clothes, He had heard from God. And no matter what the odds was, he was still... He could be perseverant because he heard from God and believed that the God that was leading him to a victory for this great nation was with him. So therefore, the Delaware froze over meant nothing to him. No matter how much ice there was, or what the--the obstacles was, still he could be
perseverant, because he felt he had God on his side.
 
HEAR.YE.HIM_  SPOKANE.WA  WEDNESDAY_  62-0711,  E-57    You've got to take the Word. There's a let down somewhere. You've got to get back to the Gospel, back to Christ, back to the living Word, not bypass it for some something this way. You've got to believe it.
What if He'd go say, "They don't believe in healing anymore. Your stripes was in vain to them, 'cause they say days of miracles is past"? Oh, He must have to blush when He says that before the Father. Yes.
See, they don't--they don't believe it. They're getting away from it, day by day falling farther and farther away. You know that. You don't have to think about it. Some of you old people have been in this longer than I have. Look back a few years ago, what it was: all night prayer meetings.
 
JUST.ONE.MORE.TIME.LORD_  PHOENIX.AZ  V-9 N-8  SUNDAY_  63-0120E,  48    Pentecost a few years ago, no more than fifty years ago, stood out. The people stood different. They come out of--of different groups of worldliness, because of their worldliness, and stood out as an example. And God has took that church, and today it's one of the most powerful churches in the world. But the thing that she's doing, she's turned right straight back around and went back into the same conglomeration that she was called out of. And when she begins to do that, her power is taken from her. Where do we get the all-night prayer meeting? Let the preacher preach till about one or two o'clock in the morning like they used to do, he'd be preaching to empty seats; they got to go home and see "We Love Susie" or somebody on certain television cast. Now, that's the truth. Why? "Where your treasures is, there your heart is also." Our treasures ought to be in the Word. The Arizona people are prospectors; you ought to go digging awhile, see what's for you.
But there stood Samson, defeated, stripped by a woman. All of his powers was taken from him because he surrendered himself and gave away his secret to a woman.
