Sleep Like a Baby

Sleep Like a Baby

Do you sleep like a baby? If not don't worry most grown-ups don't. Why is that do you suppose? I don't know if studies have been actually done on this but my guess...

Clear conscience!
 
Nothing delivers the ability of deep sleep like a clear conscience, and how many of us grown ups own the bragging rights to a clear conscience? 
 
Not me, 
 
I'm not perfect and I know it so my conscience can and does get bogged down in guilt. I know of no human that can truthfully feel they are perfect.
 
So how then can you get good sleep, well the best way I have found is: say a short prayer :) and leave it all in Gods hands. 
 
Which brings me to another matter I'd like to cover real quick. Some people are not sure of how to pray. 
 
This is because in part due to this scripture in the Bible: 
 
"Matthew 6:9-13 and Luke 11:2-4. Matthew 6:9-13 says, This, then, is how you should pray: 'Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us today our daily bread. Forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil for thine is the Kindome, the Power and the Glory forever." "Amen"
 
This was a teaching from God to his disciples as to how to pray. He was teching them that long winded prayers meant to impress others is not appropriate. Your prayers should be from your heart to Gods ear. When this happens it's the perfect prayer :) 
 
Is it okay to say just the Lords Prayer? Of course it is and I do that quite often :) I don't have to ask things of God because he already knows what I want, what I think and what I need and he provides it. 
 
 
 May each of you be blessed.
