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.
