A Prayer for When You Can't Sleep

4m | Sep 30, 2022

Find yourself tossing and turning lately? Pop your earbuds in and rest in His presence.

  • Share with the Lord everything that is swirling in your mind.
  • Delight in God’s presence.
  • Pray for someone that the Lord brings to mind.
  • Trust that the Lord can redeem bad sleep.


  • Psalm 46:10 - Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!
  • Psalm 23:2-3a (NIV) - He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he refreshes my soul.
  • Psalm 4:8 - In peace I will both lie down and sleep, for you alone, Lord, make me dwell in safety.
