Prayer for peaceful sleep


As I lay down to sleep, I hold your hand.
Your hand is my comfort and my strength.
Strength to put down my concerns and fears,
Fears that steal peace, are not from you.
You are a loving Father with whom I feel safe.
Safe to rest, to let go and be at peace.
Peace is a gift, from you, and a promise.
Promises are my daily bread, so I will lay down to sleep,
Sleep within you care.


Prayer for restful sleep

Dear Lord,

Sometimes it's so hard to sleep well.
My mind is so active, it is difficult to settle.
My body feels almost to tired to rest.
Yet I know you have created me to stop,
To switch off and be still.
So I ask for your heavenly hand to be on me tonight.
May this night be a restful one.
May I greet the morning with a restored mind, heart and body.
Tonight I hold onto your peace and trust in you.

Prayer For Peace Of Mind

(the prayer poem in the film above)

Lead me to your still streams O Lord
Where I can kneel in the waters of life
Lay down my anxious thoughts
And cast all my cares on You

Here I will wait a while
Wait a while
And bathe in the life-giving waters

Bathe my mind in Your Spirit O God
Come fill my being with Your peace

Bathe my heart with Your love O God
Come still my being with Your peace

Bathe my spirit with Your freedom O God
Come saturate this life with Your peace

Dwell at Christmas

Dwell album cover from Prayerscapes

In this season of giving, it is hard sometimes to cut through the commercial trappings, rise above the “perfect Christmas” expectations and truly connect with loved ones to give a gift that is really yearned for. We (like most creatives) sometimes find it hard to “push” our own work, to believe that our music can Read More

A Beautiful Prayer

Beautiful Tree Branches hanging low down

An Ancient Celtic Blessing

“May the Road Rise Up To Meet You” is a beautiful old Celtic blessing. Blessings are a gift and ancient ones like these help us to become open channels for the fragrance of Christ to surround those we give out to. I love the references to creation – the sun, the wind, the rain – Read More
