A Prayer When I Can't Sleep

Lord,
Here we are again... 3am.
The house is quiet.
My family is asleep.
I'm awake......

I'm awake with you.
I'm glad you are here.
I'm glad you hear
me in the night.

Thoughts run through my mind...
To do lists,
People,
Worries,
Problems,
Wonders,
News...

I try not to look at my phone,
but sometimes a quiet song helps. (https://echoesblue.com/releases/meditations-vol-3/)
Sometimes a podcast.
Sometimes a prayer app. (https://pray-as-you-go.org/)

Sometimes a verse helps: (Psalm 46:10)
Be still and know that I am God...
Be still and know that I am...
Be still and know...
Be still...
Be...

Lord,
Thanks for being here.
Thanks for listening.
I ask for your rest.
Amen.

I especially find this prayer for Insomnia helpful:
