Rest


When I remember you upon my bed and meditate on you in the watches of the night. Psalm 63:6
Lord, as I lay down to sleep, may my rest be peaceful.
Protect me from dragons, and spiders and other monsters that lurk in my subconscious, a threat to my family or myself, or a situations I cannot control.
Noises I cannot identify, footsteps that I can not classify.
Save me Lord from all this!
When my sleep is broken, chased out by fear and anxiety, come chase away the thoughts that torment me
When I think of all you suffered, I am ashamed at what I ask, but you promise to listen to our prayers.
shield and protect me, even though I am not worthy.
May I awake renewed and refreshed, ready for the next day.
Amen
