If you can’t sleep at night…

I haven’t been sleeping too good lately.  I don’t have problems getting to sleep.  But at the strike of 3AM I wake up.  So what do I do at 3 AM?  I walk around a bit… typically eating something.  Last night I watched FOX News as I ate raw chocolate chip cookie dough with a cold glass of milk.  YUM… YUM!!!

I can’t figure out why I am waking up at odd hours of the night.  I was telling Lori about it this morning.  She asked, “What do you do at 3 AM?”  I told her my story.  Lori fired back a response, “Sounds to me like you should be praying!”

Well, she didn’t have to hit me so hard!  She’s right.  I have had several people on my mind to be praying for.  I have also had a desire to be with God and to hear him in the silence.  James (a good friend of mine) recently told me that the best time to pray is between the hours of 2 and 3 AM.

I had forgotten Lori told me that this morning until I read Oswald Chambers a few moments ago.

Then don’t worry anymore about yourself, but begin to do as Jesus Christ has said, in essence, “Pray for the friend who comes to you at midnight, pray for the saints of God, and pray for all men.” My Utmost for His Highest, June 21.

I have had several people on my mind recently who I need to be praying for.  The next time I can’t sleep at night I will be taking the advice of The Warrior and adding them to my cookie dough and milk.
