2. Spiritual Treatment of Insomnia 
The spiritual treatment of insomnia includes:
a. Praying anti insomnia prayers like Father God, I ask you in the name of Jesus to help me to lie down and sleep and sustain me until I wake up in the morning. (Adapted Psalm 3:5)

b. Meditating on anti insomnia Scriptures when you find yourself awake in the middle of the night like God gives His beloved sleep (Psalm 127:2) and I will lie down and my sleep will be sweet. (Adapted Proverbs 3:24)

c. Playing Christian worship music on a very low volume during the night since In the night His song will be with me. (Psalm 42:8) This is very effective especially if your insomnia is related to either demonic oppression. 

d. Stopping to open yourself up to demonic influence by not committing sexual sin, using illicit drugs, listening to music with demonic themes or created by musicians dedicated to the devil. Other ways of opening yourself to demons are practicing witchcraft, fortune telling, doing yoga, fortune telling, using tarot cards, ouija boards or engaging in the occult in any other way. 

If you have been engaging in these type of activities, you should:

3. Believe that Jesus has forgiven all our sins and He has wiped out the things that were written against us and He has taken them out of the way by nailing them to the cross. (Colossians 2:13-14)  

4. Stop sinning.
