A Prayer for a Sleepless Night

Dear Friends of "Dial Daily Bread,"
How could you pray the Lord's Prayer all night long if you were sleepless?

(a) It's a complete prayer; it encompasses the entire plan of salvation.

(b) It includes the triumphant close of the great controversy between Christ and Satan--"thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven."

(c) That includes the healing of the wound that Lucifer's rebellion and Adam and Eve's sin in joining with the great rebel, have caused.

(d) Praying the Lord's Prayer constantly reminds you and me of the privilege we have of a part in bringing the great controversy to a close.

(e) In fact, when we pray the Lord's Prayer on a sleepless night, we find we can't wait until morning so we can get back to work to do what we can to help in the great crisis now going on.

(f) Our part in the "great controversy" may be small; but the Lord does not "despise the day of small things" (Zech. 4:10).

(g) The Lord delights in blessing teenage David when he faces the giant Goliath, with a mere slingshot.

(h) He delights in blessing you when you share a new covenant truth with someone discouraged and confused.

(i) That helps fulfill the Lord's Prayer which says, "Thy will be done in earth as it is in heaven."
