THEME: GOD’S PERFECT PEACE
“In peace I will lie down and sleep, for you alone, Lord, make me dwell in safety.”
-Many people suffer from insomnia and sometimes wait for long before they get to sleep. Insomnia is a sleep disorder that has been sighted to originate from stress that leads to depression, exposure to traumatic events, alteration of ones sleep cycle, noise pollution, sleeping on an uncomfortable bed, sickness, jet lag, unrest, use of nicotine, alcohol, caffeine and other drugs. Insomnia affects ones health, work performance and quality of life. Psalms 127:2 tells us that; God grants sleep to those He loves. It is therefore a reason to thank God if you have the grace to sleep well. God is gracious and kind, and grants us peaceful sleep. This does not mean that for one to sleep peacefully, they do not experience life challenges. Philippians 4:6-7 reminds us that we should not be anxious about anything but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present our requests to God, and the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard our hearts and minds in Christ Jesus. It is therefore prudent to submit our worries, burdens and cares to Jesus through prayer and thanksgiving, and He will grant us rest. The Israelites enjoyed safety, peace and sleep during the ten plagues. When all the Egyptians suffered, Goshen where the Israelites lived did not experience infirmity (Exodus 9:26). God also secured the Israelites with blood when the Egyptian first born sons were destroyed. Like the Israelites, God has promised to grant us peace when we sleep and when we wake up for His love for us endures forever.
God You are good and Your love endures forever. Thank You for loving us Jesus with an everlasting kind of love. We love You Jesus and praise Your holy name. Thank You for giving us the grace to sleep peacefully, we bless You. Thank You for granting us peace upon our lives, families and nation, we rejoice in You always. We cast all our burdens and cares unto You Jesus, for You care for us. You are gentle and humble at heart Jesus grant us rest in every stormy situation that comes our way. Your burden is light and Your yoke is easy, teach us to rely on Your grace dear Jesus. Teach us never to worry about life Jesus, about what we will eat or drink, or about our bodies; what we will wear, for life is more than food and the body more than clothes, and we are more valuable than the birds of the air and lilies in the water. Thank You Jesus for loving us with Your everlasting love. Grant us good sleep merciful Jesus always for You grant sleep to those You love. Thank You for loving us dear Jesus. Grant good sleep Abba Father to all those who suffer from insomnia and teach them to rest in You. Protect us merciful Father from any form of terrorist attacks planned against our nation and grant us perfect peace. Grant us rest from corruption and revive all the dying parastatals and ministries including; KPLC, KPA, KENGEN, KAA, Kenya Airways and all the others. Grant us peace in our divine purposes here on earth, that we may fight the good fight, finish our course and keep the faith, and receive our crowns of righteousness at the end of time. May Your grace and favor be upon always that we may always dwell in Your presence. May the LORD bless you and keep you. The LORD make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you. The LORD lift up His countenance upon you and give you peace. Amen
