Oh my goodness, here I am awake again. It’s going to be morning before I know it. I have to get up and go to work. I have a meeting and I need to be able to focus. What time is it? 12:15 am and I’ve been lying here for over two hours.
Lord, please help me to sleep. What time is it…1:00 am. With each passing minute I feel more stressed.
Okay Lord, whom do you want me to pray for? Help me to focus so I can at least make this time productive.
It seems like the sleepless nights are too frequent. I’m awake and cannot go to sleep, no matter how tired I am. I find when I fret, I just get more stressed and stay awake longer.
However when I take the approach that perhaps it’s a divine appointment that the Lord may have me up so that I can be praying, it takes the stress out it. At least the time is productive and I’m not keeping my husband awake too.
The Lord will bring different people and situations to mind for me to pray about. I also ask that the Lord will help me to make it through that day despite precious little sleep.
