This blog post was inspired by Sharon's "Sleepless in California" and I decided any of us, in any given day (or night in this case) may find ourselves in need of scriptures or verses and a "RESTING PLACE"
Do you sleep well at nights?
Do you bring the problems of the day to your sleep?
Do your worries wake you in the middle of the night?
Do you go to sleep in dread of the following day?
Are you looking for ways to cure insomnia?
It doesn't have to be this way. If we look in the Bible, we can find a cure for insomnia.

Bible Verses for Sleepless Nights
BIBLE VERSES about INSOMNIA
Look what else I found an actual BLOG "THE CURE FOR INSOMNIA"
SLEEPY BIBLE VERSES
By day the LORD directs his love, at night his song is with me - a prayer to the God of my life." -Ps 42:8 (NIV)
"I, (your name) lay down and slept…for the LORD was watching over me, (your name)… In peace I, (your name) will lie down and sleep, for You alone, O LORD, will keep me (your name) safe."
(Psalm 3:5 and 4:8)
If you need REST, or SLEEP or prayer, choose one of the verses and change it to prayer as I did the example above from Psalm 3:5 and Psalm 4:8. Put it on an index card along side your bed or under your pillow so when you find yourself not able to sleep, you can claim the verse or read the verses and God will grant you the sleep and rest you need.
PERSONAL PRAYER REQUESTS and HOW THE LIGHTHOUSE WORKS
If this is your first visit, please stop by here and read a little bit about our ministry--how we are joining together to lift others to God in prayer. However, what you read here and in the posts is actually enough.
Maybe you come across someone that needs prayer while visiting blogs, instead of just saying, "Praying for you", do so and bring their prayer need and leave your prayer here and let them know that you left a prayer for them at the Lighthouse of Prayer
This is an interactive blog based on a comment and response system. YOU are a part of our Prayer Team - the minute you add your prayer in the comment area or leave one for someone else in the reply under their prayer.
PLEASE WRITE YOUR PRAYER, PRAYER REQUEST, PRAISE, THANKS - in the place that would normally read COMMENTS after the most recent post, but here it reads "PRAYERS LIFTED TO THE THRONE of GOD"... since a LINKY is no longer available. We begun using a PRAYER REQUEST LINKY, but if it's not there, please leave PRAYER or REQUEST in "PRAYERS LIFTED TO THE THRONE of GOD" (the area for comments but do not write a comment) Thank you so much! Looking at this new template, it's difficult to know how to leave a comment (Prayer) but just click on the part that says __ comments. [it __ shows a number for how many comments/prayers are currently posted]
We'd love to see your prayer requests and praises to God in this area and hopefully others will be supporting you through their prayers written as a response to your prayer there. Be sure to come back and see the prayers lifting you and yours together to the LORD or leave one! You can also remain anonymous, God knows you.
Please remember NO COMMENTS, only PRAYERS! It is important that this be a house of prayer. Any comment, not as a prayer or prayer request will be deleted. Thanks again!
Please read announcement in Oct. 2014 first to understand better the lack of activity here! Thank you.
PRAYER for Our Nation
This was shared in an email from the Presidential Prayer Team:
Declaration of Independence Signer
George Washington (1732-1799), 1st President of the United States
"Almighty God: We make our earnest prayer that Thou wilt keep the United States in Thy Holy protection; and Thou wilt incline the hearts of the Citizens to cultivate a spirit of subordination and obedience to Government; and to entertain a brotherly affection and love for one another and for their fellow Citizens of the United States at large, and particularly for their brethren who have served in the Field. And finally that Thou wilt most graciously be pleased to dispose us all to do justice, to love mercy, and to demean ourselves with that Charity, humility, and pacific temper of mind which were the Characteristics of the Divine Author of our blessed Religion, and without a humble imitation of whose example in these things we can never hope to be a happy nation. Grant our supplication we beseech Thee, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen." --
This prayer of George Washington appears in St. Paul's Chapel in New York City.
