Would you mind offering a prayer for me and my wife?
I’m very bad at handling stress (my own fault). Opposed to being patient and understanding with change and other people I typically act out in an un-Christian manner. All of this finally came to breaking point on February 13th when I had my first night of being unable to sleep. And that problem has continued to this day. I think it was first triggered by anxiety; but now I’m struggling with anxiety, insomnia, and depression. I know I brought this upon myself and I’m doing my best to change my ways. But my struggles with this have now been affecting my loving wife. She’s been an amazing gift from God and now she’s been having problems with anxiety too, do to my issues.
Please pray that I can learn from the lesson that God is trying to teach me. Please pray that my wife’s anxiety and my anxiety, insomnia, and depression will lift.
Father, hear our prayer that your son will be able to return to a healthy sleep pattern, and that he and his wife will be delivered from anxiety and depression and restored to your peace and love through Jesus Christ. Mother Mary, St. Dymphna and St. Joseph, pray for them. Amen.
I’m taking meds for it but even those meds don’t help too much with the sleeping.
