A Child’s Bedtime Prayer – Safe for Adults Too

Now I lay me down to sleep.

​Sleep – that’s a long shot these nights I pray the Lord my soul to keep.

​Keep and protect my spirit and very being – especially when

​I’m so restless.  I could use a hug.

If I should die before I wake,

​Some days I think of the peace and happiness of your heaven – it seems pretty attractive compared with chaos of my earth.

But I suspect it’s not my time just yet.

I pray to God my soul to take.

​But just in case, take me to heaven and to one of those mansions big enough for family ​and friends.

If I should live for other days,

​Not perfect, but good ones – I hope.

I pray the Lord to guide my ways.

​​You’re a much better GPS than me, help me to listen, see and follow your light.

Namaste. Shalom. Shantil. Amen
