Help for Sleep

Dear Lord I am finding it so difficult to sleep. My mind will not be quieted and I seem to spend the whole night thinking tossing and turning as the worries of life are churning in my heart.

I come to You as my heavenly Shepherd – because I am one of Your sheep – one of Your little lambs…. I come to you today because You have promised to make us lie down in green pastures and to lead us beside still waters. You have promised to restore my soul– Lord as my good Shepherd I need those green pastures, I pray that You will guide me into calmer pastures.

Help me lie down in peace and to rest in Your arms of love - for You alone, O Lord, will help me to sleep in safety.

Amen
