Reading Psalm 3
I lie down and sleep;Psalm 3:5, NIV
I wake again, because the LORD sustains me.
There can be times where the worries of life weigh us down, and they might prevent us falling asleep or give us a restless night. There is good reason for David to be disturbed in this way, he is on the run from his son. David might even get attacked in the night, killed in his sleep. Yet he does sleep, he offers prayer to the Lord, and receives the rest he needs for the next day. There is still danger, the problem has not gone, but he is able to know a peace that we too can seek.
