In Celestial Church of Christ, the only vigil we normally do is the New Moon Service which starts at 10pm till when the Holy Spirit directs. Especially during the prophet’s vigils.

Vigils are essential parts of our lives as Celestians. It is necessary to make absolute and proper use of the power of the night in our growth. Jesus had a culture to pray at night and He is the perfect model for vigils. So, if you have a habit to sleep during vigils, you should read this till the end.

When you go for vigils, New moon, Prophet’s Night, etc, it is really heartbreaking to see people falling asleep. In cases like this, it is much better to sleep in your bed than to attend vigils and suffer discomfort by sleeping in church while your bed remains empty.

Among other things, sleeping during vigils is usually caused by your stress during the day, or in some cases, accumulated stress.

When you see someone geared up for vigil, dancing heavily during praise worship sessions, praying aloud during the first set of prayer points, or bouncing up and down the hall, shouting on top of his voice, know that they will soon burn out.

Here are a few tips to help you defeat sleep during vigils.

  1. Sleep Before The Vigil: Have you heard the popular saying that “you cannot cheat nature”? Sleep is that nature and the night is created for sleep. So, if you really want to stay awake during vigils, get some good sleep before you attend the vigil.
  2. Take Water: You need a form of energy and strength whenever you pray. So taking might give you strength to get prepared before prayers.
  3. Don’t Pray On A Spot: Praying on a spot will make you feel relaxed, and tiredness might catch you up. By the time you know it, you will be sleeping and standing at the same time.
  4. Do Not Sit Down: Sitting down is one reason why people succeed or fail when it comes to sleeping at vigils, you should only sit down during vigil if the Shepherd is giving a sermon, and by that time, you should be stable enough not to sleep off.
