A Prayer for those Sleepless Nights

A Prayer for those Sleepless Nights : When you can’t sleep

During the stillness of the night, I can hear nothing but the silence that surrounds me. I can hear it because I am wide awake, while all the world around me is at rest. Lord, I just cannot sleep.

Father, I cannot find the words to tell you what’s wrong but, even so, I know You understand me.

Search my heart, Oh Lord. Take away the pain, take away the suffering, take away the troubles.

Restore peace and tranquility in my life. Give me strength to go on for I am tired and weary, but yet my eyes are wide open.

Psalm 4:8 I will lie down and sleep in peace, for you alone, O LORD, make me dwell in safety.

Isaiah 26:3 – You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast, because he trust in you.

Lying Sleepless, Worried, Burdened

You alone know what I have been through and what I am going through at present and all that I ask is that You help me through it.

Savior, please hear my humble cry. I lie here sleepless because it worries me, I feel so burdened and alone. Please comfort me, I need You now more than ever.

Proverbs 3:23-24 – Then you will walk safely in your way, and your foot will not stumble. When you lie down, you will not be afraid; yes, you will lie down and your sleep will be sweet.

Restore Peace And Gentle Sleep

Wrap Your gentle arms around me as I sob quietly into the night. Restore that joy and happiness I once knew, for pain only endures for the night and surely joy comes in the morning.

Allow me to find rest before the morning draws near. So I can go out and face the world and all that life has to throw at me, in confidence and with a smile.

I rest assured that You are always with me and the battle is already won! In Jesus mighty name, Amen!

Psalm 91:5-7 – You will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day, nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the plague that destroys at midday. A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you.

Psalm 121:3-4He will not let your foot slip – he who watches over you will not slumber; indeed, he who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep.

  8. I adore this beautiful Prayer, thank you Cheryce, When Jesus was on the earth, God spoke to us through Him, and when Jesus returned to Heaven He now speaks to us via the Holy Spirit … It is one way that He speaks to us personally, powerfully—today. And I believe that the Spirit gives Cheryce the words she writes in her Prayers, He plant’s them in her heart so that we may benefit from them here in our Community

  10. +Martin Forgenie your prayer moved me to tears but thank you. It is going to be a favourite prayer by which I’m going to write in down in manuscript and frame it.

    Dear Lord
    Why do tears wet my pillow
    While I lay awake in the sleepless nights
    It’s not that I have not enough
    Or have much to complain in life

    But in Your great wisdom
    You know Lord what’s hidden deep inside
    Come and enfold me strong enough
    That I will overcome all that I feel inside
