MY NIGHTTIME PRAYER
(A Grown-up Version of a Childhood Prayer)
"Now I lay me down to sleep;
I pray Thee, Lord, my soul to keep..."
Forgive the sins that I have done;
Wash me clean in the blood of Your Son.
Bless my loved ones everywhere;
Keep them safe within Your care.
Thank You, Lord, for all You do;
Teach me always to walk with You.
As I rest, my strength renew,
So I can arise to work for You.
Watch over me in every way
And wake me safe at break of day.
If You should come before I wake,
I'll see You in heaven, what a glorious Daybreak!
Knowing that You're always there,
I rest secure within Your care.
