Making Prayer Sandwiches Can Help You Sleep Better & Start the Next Day Right

Ever had something gnawing atcha that kept you awake at night? A problem? A concern? A need? Let me show you how a prayer sandwich can help you sleep better. No joke, make one of these babies each day as you pray and you'll rest easy as soon as your little head hits your pillow. And bonus - you'll start your next day right!

How do you assemble a prayer sandwich?

It's as simple as slapping two pieces of bread together with something in the middle. But in this case, we're using a morning prayer and an evening prayer sandwiched together with some really amazing filler in the middle of your day!

1. Laying down the 1st piece of your prayer sandwich:

Pray in the morning as soon as you wake up - thanking God for as many things as you can think of. Your health, your family, your friends, your car, your job. How about the fact that you had a bed to crawl out of? A coffee maker you are making your way toward that's going to give you a piping hot steamy cup of AHHH! Anything you can think of to thank God for is fair game for the first piece of bread in your prayer sandwich.

2. Laying down the meat of your prayer sandwich:

Pray about the events of your day. Your agenda and tasks. This is the meat of your sandwich because it's dealing with the meat of your day. The concerns and needs you have along with prayers for people you know and love. Don't forget the people you will cross paths with who need the love of Jesus.

3. Laying down the last piece of bread that completes the sandwich:

Before you go to bed, thank God for all he did for you today. Thank him for all that you accomplished. Then, give him all of your unsolved problems. Now this is important, because if you successfully unload all of your cares, big and small, dumping them into his lap, you won't need to wake up in the middle of the night worrying about them. You will sleep better - I promise!

When you sandwich your day with prayer - you will sleep better at night and start the next day right.
