God of peace and rest,

Dare we even talk about how we lay there at night unable to find the rest we long for? 

Our minds race about what has been or what could be or what we can’t imagine will happen. 

Or our minds are quiet and the silence is deafening. 

In the silence of the night everything that we’ve held back comes crashing through.

Instead of sleep we find anxiety. 

The darkness feels like it’s overtaking us. 

Bring sleep, dear God, bring rest. 

Calm our minds and our spirits. 

Hold our burdens. 

We give the past, present, and future for you to hold. 

May your loving embrace warm and comfort us as we wait for rest.
