In the Catholic faith there’s a saint for everything. Last month I found a saint for cycling! Who knew?
Now I’m looking for a saint to ward off nightmares. I’ve been having them periodically and I don’t know why. I exercise daily and eat reasonably well (and not before bed)! Before going to bed one evening, I said to my husband, “Hopefully I won’t wake you up tonight.”
“I’m used to it,” was his reply.
My search for a saint to combat my nightmares was a daunting one. I came across Saints Caedmon, Euthymius, Joseph, Leoba, Martin of Tours, Christopher and Michael. An impressive line-up, but no one seemed to speak directly to me.
I searched Scripture, but nothing seemed to address my situation.
Feeling frustrated, I decided to analyze my night time prayers. What was I missing? What did I need? I prayed for my family, friends, the sick, our dogs, and then I would say the Hail Mary over and over until I went to sleep.
Dear Reader, I need your help. Can you suggest a saint for me to combat my nightmares? Who’s intercession should I ask for a nightmare free sleep? What prayer do you suggest that I can pray to ward off my disturbing dreams? My husband and I are counting on you!
