“Dear Heavenly Father,
Every time I close my eyes, I can’t find rest. Jehovah Shalom, there are a million things on my heart and mind. In my head I know that worrying won’t get me anywhere, but it makes me feel like I’m doing something.
Lord, I need you to help me trust in you. Help me to give you all my worry and fear. If there’s something I need to do that I haven’t addressed, please reveal it to me. I ready my ears to hear your voice and harken your wisdom. Your wisdom is a strong tower that I can run to for safety. Help me to keep this in mind when I consider following my own reasoning.
If my sleeping issue is related to the way I handle my health, help me to address this head-on with total honesty. I give you permission to guide and evaluate the things I eat and drink. Strengthen me to really be wise about the things I put into my body, which is your temple.
Help me to discipline myself. I need to wake up a bit earlier and go to bed earlier. Bless me to have the self-control to turn off all television, radio and stimulating distractions.
Give me discernment when I take on more projects than I should. Give me the courage to say no and honor the limits of what I am able to handle. Brighten up the paths that I need to take and close the doors that I should be passing up.
Before I lay down, help me to quiet my mind. Remind me to meditate on your word. Speak to me as I open my heart to you in these precious moments. Soothe me with your wisdom and truth.
Thank you for the Armor of God. In the name of Jesus, by faith I put on my shoes of peace, belt of truth, breastplate of righteousness, the sword of the spirit and my helmet of salvation. Cover and seal me with the protection of your blood, Lord.
As I sleep, guard my dreams. Only you have permission to speak through them. Warn me of any danger, unnecessary heartaches or circumstances that can be avoided.
In the name of Jesus, I silence all the lying spirits that war against me. I command the angels of protection to stand wing tip to wing tip as guards around my room while I sleep.
Lord, give sweet sleep to your servant. Make it a time of complete restoration and inspiration. Every morning when I wake, let me be renewed with a fresh perspective and new revelations of what you want to do to me and through me.
Expand my heart to love what you love and express that love to the people who challenge it everyday. I expect you’ll transform me every time I close my eyes. Over the years, I will look back and see how great a God you really are just by the work you have done in me, I promise to obey all you reveal to me. All of this is for or your honor and glory. In Jesus’ name, I speak shalom over my home. Amen.”
