Praying for sleep

Our daughter Divine was afraid to sleep because of bad dreams, so we have been praying with her. One day when we were reading the Bible together a verse just jumped out and it has given her victory over her sleep. We wrote the verse out and placed it by her bed and every night before she goes to sleep she reads it, and she will speak her name in the verse. Since that time she has been sleeping peacefully and uninterrupted. The verse is Proverbs 3:24-26 (GNT) ‘I will not be afraid when I go to sleep, and I will sleep soundly through the night. I will not have to worry about sudden disasters, such as come on the wicked like a storm. The Lord will keep me safe. He will not let me fall into a trap.’
