When I can not Sleep

O God, I cannot sleep.

I lie awake, thinking about things and worrying.

I worry about my health, my family, the future

a countless number of things.

I am weary but I find no rest.

I remember your words;

‘Can any of you live a bit longer by worrying about it?’ (Mt 6:27)

Help me to take your words to heart.

Let me place each concern in your hands.

Grant me peace, O God, and let me sleep.
