Caring God, we ask your prayers for those who struggle to sleep. May whatever is causing their minds to be so busy that they cannot find the rest and refreshment that sleep provides be cured. If it is anxiety over some event or problem with which they are presented, help them to find a way to release them for a while so that they can see whatever it is from afresh prospective. Help them to let you carry whatever burden might be weighing them down, knowing that you can carry so much more than we can ask or imagine. May we know that each and every day has both lightness and darkness and that rest is a tool for helping us face each day. May your presence comfort and heal us now and always. Amen.
