This may seem like an odd question. I know for some who are more "advanced" than I , you can say your prayers and give all to God and sleep. It is not that way for me. My mom had a really helpful suggestion. She knew that when I went to bed and said my prayers , because I was praying over my concerns for myself and others (and well as saying my thank yous to God) that it was bringing all of these worries up and that I was laying there thinking about the problems and not sleeping. Her suggestion was, say only your thank you prayers at night. Just thank God for his help in getting through the day. In the morning, say your prayers about things that concern you. You need to be awake then anyway This has been helpful to me and I thought it might be for some of you.
