Reasons for lack of Sleep
…..and his spirit was so troubled that his sleep left him. (Daniel 2:1)
If the human spirit is troubled a loss of sleep results

Praying in tongues can calm down the human spirit
Isa 28:11 For with stammering lips and another tongue He will speak to this people, 12 To whom He said, “This is the rest with which You may cause the weary to rest,” And, “This is the refreshing”; Yet they would not hear.

Worshiping the Lord calms down the human spirit

Da 2:12 For this reason the king was angry and very furious, and gave a command to destroy all the wise men of Babylon.
Persecution revealed who really were the wise men
Persecution will reveal who are the true servants of God

Da 2:17 Then Daniel went to his house, and made the decision known to Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah, his companions,
18 that they might seek mercies from the God of heaven concerning this secret, so that Daniel and his companions might not perish with the rest of the wise men of Babylon.
They prayed together
They prayed the prayer of agreement
Mt 18:20 “For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them.”

Da 2:46 Then King Nebuchadnezzar fell on his face, prostrate before Daniel, and commanded that they should present an offering and incense to him.
Kings will fall prostrate before men that know their God
If you have been falling on your face instead of kings falling on their face before us is because we do not know our God.
