We’ve all had the experience of waking up in the middle of the night. It’s not always something we embrace.
Yet, experts say before the Industrial Revolution this “segmented sleep” was normal. Folk went to bed early, rose during the night for an hour or two, and returned to sleep until morning.
Here is a collection of 26 Wake/Sleep prayers for your use from December 1-26. (You can pray them anytime!)
Prayers include …..
The Prayer of One Waking in Pain
The Prayers of the Innkeepers Who Said No
The Prayer of the Shepherds Who Washed Their Socks
You may choose to rise in the middle of the night ….
OR you can pray your prayers at bedtime or in the morning!
Register now and your Wake/Sleep prayers and practice will be emailed to you by November 19.
Wake/Sleep Prayers are written by Prayer Bench friend, Heather MacDougall, and Janice MacLean.
Please note: All 2022 Prayer Bench paid subscribers receive Wake/Sleep Prayers as part of the yearly package.
