“In peace I will lie down and sleep, for you alone, Lord, make me dwell in safety.” (Psalm 4:8)
Here in Australia it’s bedtime. These words sit in the middle of a frame above my bed, reminding me of the rest my God can give…
Some things cause us to lose sleep, and others send us into a blissful slumber. Here’s my prayer for tonight…
Sleep doesn’t come easy to me. It’s the treasure I don’t always find. But I thank you, that, whatever my night is like, you are always with me, giving me what I need. You are the source of peace, and spiritual safety. I am forever hidden in you.
You are ever-present. You know what keeps me up at night and you know what causes me to rest well. I ask for the blessing of sleep… or simply the ability to endure well through a season of tiredness.
In Jesus’ name,
