Good Night Blessings! May the Lord bless you and keep you safe
Tips for Prayers for Sleep
Everyone’s sleep patterns and issues are different. Perhaps you fall asleep but wake up in the middle of the night restless or you have a tendency to go to bed at 3am, leaving you exhausted for the next day. Fear and anxiety also cause a lot of sleepless nights.
When using these prayers for sleep, make sure to personalize your prayer to mention what is uniquely going on with you or someone in your home. Even using specific information in prayer is a great way to make your prayer personal to the Lord.
