A Prayer from a Restless Bed

based on 1 Samuel 3:1-10

Faithful God, I am tired, and yet I cannot sleep.

The hour is late, and I cannot see.

The light has not yet gone out, and yet the shadows are too thick to comprehend.

I don't know what's in front of me, I cannot make sense of what is behind me.

I can hear something, but I don't know what it is. Is it my own doubt and dread; the voices within and around me that bring anxiety and fear? 

If your voice is among the din pounding within my head and heart, I hope to know it better.

Keep speaking, and I will strive to listen.

Amen.
