I Sleep in Peace

O Lord, my sleep is restless and not at all peaceful. My heart is heavy with the burden of losing my friendship. I know that it isn't my choice that the friendship is over. O Lord, hold my heart in Your hands. The depression threatens to over take me. Save me from it. Give me the peace I desperately need! O Lord, may I not rely on my feelings but things I know to be true. May I lay down and sleep then awake again because You have sustained me. Amen.
Lord, be kind to us.
But You have made me very happy,
happier than they are,
even with all their grain and new wine,
I got to bed and sleep in peace,
because, Lord, only You keep me safe.
Psalm 4:6-8
I cried to the Lord with my voice,
And He heard me from His holy hill.
I lay down and slept;
I awoke, for the Lord sustained me.
Psalm 3:4-5
It is no use for yout o get up early and stay up late...
The Lord gives sleep to thsoe He loves.
Psalm 127:2
