What can I use organically to rid this kind of weed

I have this kind of weed (please see the picture below) among the lawn. Although it keeps the lawn looking greener, when the lawn is actually asleep, it is very invasive. I have kept pulling it out, yet it grows faster than I could pull. I have been adding organic materials to the lawn, plus pulling all kinds of weeds out. The lawn looks much better now, but the kind of the weeed I was talking about is not gone. What can I use organically to prevent it coming back? Thanks

Looks like henbit, an annual plant that seeds prolifically.

Pull them and keep pulling. Don't let them go to seed!

Note what the link that Jean provided says about henbits prefered growing conditions. Correct them in your lawn and you will see fewer of these plants growing there.
