Insomnia

Dear God,

I am sleeping longer and better now, a real blessing.  I had previously gotten into the habit of staying up late and still getting up early.  I do hope that You talk to me in my dreams.

Insomnia is frequently presented to doctors, but there are no easy answers.  If I reach for your peace in the evening hours, surely my subsequent rest will be good.

Thank You for caring about these practical matters of living.

Amen.

Smooth Days

Dear God,

Be with me today for a good day.  Help me to remember that You are always here for me, wishing me the best.  Struggles will come, but these days are smoother than some years previously, and for that I thank You.

May I reach out to others, to improve their day.  We are all in this together.

Thank You for giving me insights as I walk through my day.

Amen.

Surrender

Dear God,

I come to You in surrender, once again.  When I stay surrendered, life goes well.  When I try to take back my life, my life goes awry.  Let me take these two pieces of information together and make sense of them.

The only way to live well is to live in Your shadow, always and forever.

Thank You for leading me to this knowledge, and it is knowledge.

Amen.
