After a long and arduous day, it can often be difficult to calm down and be at peace. This can cause us to be restless and not be able to sleep at night.
One way to help ease our soul is to ask God for help.
Here is a prayer attributed to St. Bernard of Clairvaux that can help in this regard.
Jesu name of sweetest thought
Name with every blessing
But beyond all blessings here
Is Thy Presence Jesu dear
Shut thy door my weary heart
Seek at night the better part
Day or night where er’er I be
Seeks my love Thy Face to see
With us stay Redeemer dear
On us shed Thy brightness here
Chase the darkness of the night
Fill the world with sweetest light
Reign O LORD in peace most blest
Reign in sweet unbroken rest
Ah how longs each weary heart
There to have its joyous part
