 As-Salaam alaykum,
In ayat/verse 16 of Surat Sajdah of the Holy Qur'an (32:16), Allah Ta'ala says:--

   "Their sides forsake their beds."  This is in reference to those Muslim believers who offer the voluntary night prayers, known as Tahajjud/Qiyamul-Layl. And in the Hadith, the Noble Prophet, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, said:--

    "Hold fast to night prayer, for it was the
     way of the righteous before you, a way of
     drawing closer to your Lord, an expiation
     for wrong deeds, and a shield from sin."
                                              
[Tirmidhi].
  "Qiyam" literally means standing up, particularly after sleeping, just as we say.. 'YAUMUL-QIYAMH' for Day of Judgement as we rise to stand before Allah, Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala, after much rest in our graves. That is why sleep is like a daily death, and Qiyam is to rise from it. Whoever stands the night in prayer, Allah will make easy for him in standing on the Day of Judgement, as some of our 'Ulama observe.

 Sayyadi Ibn Abbas, may Allah be pleased with him, also advised, "Whoever loves to find the long of the day of Resurrection less difficult should let him show himself to Allah in the darkness of the night, prostrating and standing, fearing the Hereafter and hoping for Mercy of his Lord."

 In view of this, it is advisable that we take to this Sunnah of the night prayer regularly for life.

 Best Wishes.
