You Should Get More Sleep When...

Last night, I fell asleep reading a book in bed. Nate woke me up so we could say prayer, and it was my turn. I was really, REALLY tired. This is how the prayer went:

Nicole: "Please bless that we can be kept safe, and if we can't, please bless that we can defend ourselves..." A few more things..."Amen"
Nate: "Did you say 'defend ourselves?'"
Nicole: "Uh, yeah. In case we can't be kept safe..."

To be honest, I usually just sort of revert to standard phrases that I use when I'm that tired. "Defend ourselves" has NEVER been in a prayer that I've said before...ever.

Look out intruders.


  1. Maybe you SHOULD start making it standard. You never know when you may need to defend yourself.

  2. You've inspired me. I will now always pray for defensive skills.

  3. I was once so tired while praying that I blessed the spider aliens. David and I still laugh about that almost 3 years later!

  4. oh now, that just made me really happy! i can't read any more blogs tonight because nothing can top this! ahhh...so so great!

  5. Love the fun prayer! We've had prayers like that - one of us says something funny and the other just starts laughing because we know it's because we are so tired!
