Charity (8)
Q: How come angels never go to bed? Why does God pray he is able to do everything?
A: Dear Charity,
We’re so glad you love Kids’ Time Praise!

The reason angels don’t sleep is because they don’t get tired! This means they are always watching and alert to protect us from danger. I know that’s kind of hard for us to understand not being tired, but the Bible tells us that when we get to heaven, we won’t get tired, either. This is why the Bible says that in the New Earth “Night will be no more” (Revelation 22:5).

I’m not sure about your other question about God praying. If you mean Jesus, when He was on this earth praying to His Father, it is because Jesus came to this earth to live like us, and to show us how we could live. The Bible says Jesus “emptied Himself” (Philippians 2:7, NASB) when He came to earth. That means He made a choice not to live by His own godly power, but to live like we have to live – by His Father’s power. So He prayed to God for strength just as we must pray to God for strength to teach us that when we pray, God will help us to be like Jesus. I hope that answers your question.


Thanks for writing, and remember, there's never been a better time to share Jesus!

Your friend,
Pastor Howard
