The devil is in the details.
Horror movies and TV shows about paranormal phenomena always speak about the “devil’s hour,” which, depending on the source, can range from three to four in the morning or from midnight to three in the morning. The unanimous opinion is that the devil would be more powerful during the dark of dawn.
The Gospels of Matthew, Mark, and Luke tell us that Jesus died during the “ninth hour.” In the modern calculation, it would be at 3 in the afternoon. Satan, then, turned the symbolism in his head, taking to himself the three o’clock time, in direct mockery of God. Another reason for this choice is the fact that it is in the middle of the night; the sun will still take a few hours to be born.
The Scriptures also refer to night and darkness as a period of sin. This concept is perfectly summed up in John’s Gospel: “Now this is judgment: light has come into the world, but men loved darkness rather than light, for their deeds were evil. For everyone who does evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved “(John 3, 190-29).

In addition, Jesus was betrayed by Judas during the night and Peter denied Jesus before the “rooster crows”. It is also believed that the “judgment” of Jesus in the Sanhedrin occurred during the “hour of the devil.”
The biological aspect of the night has yet to be considered, since the point of the deepest nocturnal sleepiness in the normal adult sleep-wake cycle occurs at three in the morning. Awakening or being awakened at this time can destabilize our circadian rhythms and make us feel depressed or anxious.
That’s why a lot of people usually say a few prayers when they wake up at three in the morning. But remember: no matter what time of day, God is always more powerful than Satan and remains the “light of the world,” which will break any darkness.
