Prayer in the Night

182850_3557973822840_1460337516_n-2Night calls from the deep, beckoning the Light to come. Here, Lord, we find the peace that passes all understanding. All of the challenges of the day seem to pale as we seek rest, sweet rest in you. We may not have spoken the words that should have come from our lips, or taken the actions that we should have taken today, but we ask for wisdom and strength for tomorrow to awaken fresh and anew in You, Lord. Tonight we ask for peace in the lives of those who read these words and sweet sleep as they lay their bodies down for a night of rest. Give to them comfort in knowing that you have your arms wrapped tightly around them and will never let them go. Encourage them, Lord, to know that they can arise early in the morning with new opportunities to speak the words that you give, love those around them with your love, and reach out to help the hurting in their paths. Bless each one tonight and give the needed rest to awaken to a glorious new day in you, Lord, we pray, in the Name of Jesus. Amen.

John 14:27 “Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.”
