These days I can’t sleep, and I was thinking about how many times we have insomnia and say we don’t understand why, and sometimes we just don’t want to admit that we are worried about a specific issue or that we need to solve something with someone.
But we can’t always do what we need to do at that exact moment, or we don’t even know how to solve such a situation, so we need to give it into the Lord’s hands and let Him guide us to rest and then calmly know how to act on a certain matter.
With this in mind, today I want to pray with you that we can together say goodbye to insomnia. I leave here a passage especially for you today:
In peace I lie down and soon I fall asleep, for only you, Lord, make me live in safety.Psalms 4:8
Remember that you don’t have to repeat the prayer exactly as I’m going to leave it here, because each one of us has a specific way of communicating with the Lord. But if you want to accompany me, it will be a pleasure, feel free to speak it in your own way.
Beloved God, I thank you for the night made for rest and for the home I have to rest in. Today I come to you to pray for my night’s sleep, I have not been able to sleep easily, and I know there are reasons for that, so I would like to admit that I need your help to find the right way to deal with them.
I know that many things I can’t solve in my own time, so I place before You my worries and anguish. Please take care of my heart that is so afflicted, I ask you to pour out on me the peace that comes from You, so that I can rest easy.
May my dependence be exclusively on You, my God. I love You very much and know that You are my refuge and fortress. With the authority given to me in Christ, I rebuke every evil act and influence to take away my peace, so I rebuke insomnia, anxiety, and every evil that can probe me.
I declare that this will be a peaceful night of rest, and that I will wake up prepared to deal with whatever I need to deal with. It is in the name of Jesus that I pray, give thanks, and ask that my words reach the Lord like a sweet perfume!
Prayer of a mere servant of God
