Prayerful Sleep

I am blessed with sleeping soundly nearly every night. Even so I tend to wake up about four o clock and then finding it difficult to get back to sleep. I have now found a remedy.

When I wake I purposefully start to pray. I have a short list of people on my mind who I’ve not had time to pray for during the day. I never pray for myself or my problems at this time, only for others. Many nights I fall asleep before I get through the list. I then have to finish the prays before I get up in the morning. I’m sure God doesn’t mind me falling asleep as I have been spending time talking to Him. Maybe I’m doing what Paul says ‘Pray without ceasing.’
