I am calling on the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit to please please cause my child to go to sleep. Sing over her, give her a holy benadryl, whatever but please quiet her with Your love oh Lord. May my prayer be like incense before Your Throne.

I have learned so much this week personally and through the pages of scripture. My heart is so full and I need some time to just sit at the feet of Jesus and choose what is best which is to know Him. I have been thinking tonight about how insecure I have been in my life and what foolishness it has led me to. I want to belt out, and I do, like the daddy in Mark 9... for the Lord to help my unbelief. I struggle so much at times with believing that He can still change things when I feel like the stone has been rolled over the tomb of my circumstances. I struggle to comprehend how great the love of Christ really is. I know that our faith is not about feelings but I need to feel Him that ok. I have done breaking free so many times (Beth Moore) and I don't want to just know about breaking free anymore...I want to do it. To have the Spirit of the Lord so permeate my being that where His Spirit is, He would bring Liberty. Our God is a God of Liberation. I still am so thankful that He is not like man in His mercy toward sinners like me. I love Him so and that is all I am saying for tonight. Goodnight out there in blog land. Love to all my siestas!

Oh man I need my rest so I can not imagine how it is with little Morgan and her desire to be awake all the time.
Does she still take a nap?
If so maybe it could be shorter or eliminated so she will be ready at night. It will be rough at first but establishing that routine of no nap and bedtime at 7, 8pm or so might help.
Oh goodness I will pray for you and sweet Morgan!
God bless,

hahah!! i was babysitting last night and one of the kids was having trouble getting to sleep and i prayed a similar prayer over her sweet heart because she just would not budge!! but it worked and 15 minutes later she was OUT!

I can relate. My youngest,who is now 7 did not sleep for the first 2 years of his life. He did not sleep through the night in those 2 years. I read books, I had 2 other children before him that started sleeping through the night "on time" but not the 3rd. My second child wouldn't nap at all, even in infancy. Yet she did sleep at night. I know how you feel. I will pray for you. When your body is unrested we cannot function properly. I pray for you and your little one.
I love your blog. It gives me inspiration!

Bless your heart!! I completely understand. Landon has been difficult in the sleep dept. also! Kim's suggestion sounds good. They say having that routine every night and do the same things at the same times really helps. The kiddos know what is expected. That has really helped with Landon. Of course, it is not always easy to keep on that scheduled routine every night.
I will be praying for you, because I know how stressful getting them to sleep can be. I have prayed that same prayer over Landon many, many, many times!
