A Prayer for When I Can’t Sleep
I can’t sleep.
I’m tossing and turning. Again.
I’m so thankful You never grow weary
And You never sleep.
I’m thankful that You are here with me right now,
Even when my mind won’t stop churning…
And my head won’t stop spinning.
Even when I know that worrying gets me nowhere
And my heart needs to rely on You.
I need You- the Good Shepherd-
Because counting sheep just doesn’t work.
Would you comfort my heart as only You can?
Will you rescue me from my own spiral of thoughts?
For I know that when I rest in You,
peace like a river overflows my soul and
I can praise You in advance for sweet rest.
Hey Friends- I’ve never been a major insomniac, but sometimes I feel like I haven’t slept since Taylor was born. That’s 17 years. I keep one eye half open and one ear half open and then switch sides. Yes- it’s complicated. I’m guessing someone else can relate for various reasons. I think God had David write the Psalms for this reason. 😉
Enjoy this prayer for when you can’t sleep.
