Consistently one of the most popular search terms that lands people on my blog is “patron saint of sleep”. It makes me sad every time I read this in my stats, because I know how chronic sleep deprivation feels. St. Elijah, by the way, is the patron saint of sleep. I started searching for prayers for a good night’s sleep, and here is my favorite:
“Loving God. You guard and protect all Your beloved children. Be with me now as I try to sleep. Let me feel safe, secure, and sleepy as I imagine myself resting in Your arms. Guide me into rest, that I may begin tomorrow afresh, to the glory of Your name. Amen.” ~ Melissa Roberts Check out her site for more simple, lovely prayers.
